Kapow! is an easy to learn fast paced story driven system that scales from street level to cosmic level heroes. It plays fast and rewards creative thinking. Not much number crunching here, instead Kapow! focuses on capturing comic book action. I hig [...]

I stumbled across this, and am very pleasantly impressed! I love the Idea of Superhero RPGs, but often they are way too complicated ala Champions. (Gotta say I love Champions, but it tales so long to make a character, it's like a calculus test.) This [...]

Do you know the game you want to play? If it's a supers game, you've come to the right place. While most superhero games are either overly complex with character creation rules that require deep study of the rules and possibly a calculator. Kapow, inst [...]

Great little game! I was expecting an amateurish offering- it is free after all- but I was pleasantly surprised to find a comprehensive, well designed, full featured RPG. Superhero RPG's are a hobby of mine- I own just about everything- and Kapow! emul [...]

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.
