Apart from actually being free to download, there's a lot more that's "free" about the Four Colour System. You are welcome to repurpose it for other than superhero role-playing, by removing superpowers and replacing them with skills or specia [...]

It's an interesting distillation of the basic FASERIP system, but it suffers a bit from it's generic nature. My biggest problem is chargen. Using the table as written for rolling Traits and power levels, you would at best wind up with a "mid-card& [...]

I would personally recommend this game system to players who wish to reminisce the ever popular Marvel Superheroes game. The rules are more clearer and precise. No more dangling and confusion that requires more supplementary publication, which to me is [...]

Another Retro-Clone, this time in tradition of FASERIP, AKA MArvel Super Heroes. Again the big pluses here are the ability for publishers to create new content for an out-of-print, but not-out-of-play game. For players it provides a new and somewhat cl [...]

The core rules for a simple, free superhero game very much inspired by the old Marvel Super Heroes game. That game was one of the best in the history of the hobby, so a near-copy has to be at least "very good". It has a lot of elements to it [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
