How is the quality of the scan? I'm a bit worried that the scan quality is a bit grainy based on the quality of the preview pdf...

I honestly prefer the combat rules in this version... 2nd edition brought in a bunch of stuff from RIFTS, and added weird penalties to dodging certain attacks that, while maybe more realistic, felt very out of place in a supers game.

I own a copy of both this and the 2nd edition (the latter of which had some content cut out so that they could sell it as multiple books). It's a fun and goofy game, though I don't recommend playing it too seriously. The rules are easily gamed, and the lack of balance can really derail the game if everyone is playing for keeps. (This is a game where you can literally play a Golden Age style Superman or a talking pigeon. And if you have a game with both then everyone should be working together to have a good time.)

Despite the fact that the second edition lacks the Game Master content (found now in the overpriced Game Master's Guide), I'd still recommend picking it up over this one. The rules and options are expanded on, and it fixes some of the more glaring imbalances and fills in some holes in the rules. Having both does eliminate the need for the more pricey 2nd edition supplements though. They didn't exactly reinvent the wheel the second time round, and dividing everything up between 5+ books...See more

I owned this book when I was a kid and never played the game but loved the book a lot. I had to purchase this PDF out of curiosity. It is pretty amazing. Generating heroes is a game within itself... Old School Fun...

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.
