Attention: Have your security clearance clearly visible at all times!

The Metahuman Evaluation and Tracking Authority was instituted to keep track of the powerful beings who took the world of Beacon City by storm. It collects data from a number of sources and shares it between various law enforcement agencies and the military. Now, with this first dip into the METAs database, we present you with a new resource for characters for your games… your fellow players from around the globe!

Welcome to METAs, a series of supplements for Mutants and Masterminds featuring characters submitted by players just like you! To start you off, issue one features eight fully-statted and illustrated characters, including color commentary from METAs personnel. If that wasn’t enough to pique your interest, we included a 5-page article from Maestro Game Designer Jack Norris on how to run a Villainous campaign, “Bring on the Bad Guys!” With this information at your disposal, feel free to drop these heroes and villains into your game and use them however you wish. There are heroes in here for you to add to your campaign’s background as allies for your players, and some characters who would easily be used as villains as well. Or flip things around and have your players take on the roles of villains, and use these and other heroes against them!

Special highlights in this issue include contributions from Leon Chang, Rick Jones (Due Vigilance: Six Gun) and Steve Perrin (Amazing Stories of WWII: Homefront Heroes, and Homefront Villains)! Illustrations are courtesy of Alex Williamson, Jesse Justice, Denise Jones, and Dan “Alien Mastermind” Houser. From the childlike antics of Kid Awesometastic to Mictantlocan, a sinister avatar of death, you’re sure to find some surprises inside the METAs database. Now includes Hero Lab Files for the characters!

Stay inside the clearly marked areas, and do not attempt to remove any files from the secure zone. Any copies must be verified by the attending clerk.

Thank you for joining METAs!

Jack Norris's write-up on running villainous player characters and campaigns is wonderful stuff, particularly for someone like me who enjoys super-hero comics, but has read only a modest selection. He discusses the kinds of possible PC villains and wh [...]

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.
