Re-Released Due to Fan Request

This product requires the original Super Powers Companion 1e from Pinnacle Entertainment to play, and has not been updated for the 2e Companion.

Also contains: the original Hellbrood: Ultimate Agenda convention adventure, two Hellbrood short stories (roughly 1,800 words each) that originally appeared in 2012 issues of Savage Insider, and a new Author Commentary! 

Since superpowered beings first revealed themselves to the public in the first half of the 20th century, the world has been mesmerized by the dazzling array of powers. No place has been more famous for its superhero community than New York. A veritable melting pot of colorfully clad heroes and villains, the Big Apple is known the world over for countless epic battles.

All that changed, however, when strange, gigantic pods fell from the sky. Already weakened from an impossible battle against the world's most powerful supervillain, the heroes were unprepared for the arrival of an alien race bent on the destruction of life throughout the universe. Within days, entire cities were destroyed, heroes and villains alike perished under the onslaught of the invaders, and billions were turned into the dreaded Hellbrood, flesh-ravenous creatures whose sole purpose was to consume all living things.

Written in the popular War of the Dead style format, Hellbrood: Countdown to Invasion is a complete volume of a six adventure miniseries which launches the massive comic book style mega-event, where you will not only face the world's deadliest supervillain, but also battle on the front lines of a war against an alien race determined to destroy the Earth.

Designed for the award winning Savage Worlds role-playing game and the Super Powers Companion 1e, this volume includes five playable races, new Edges and Hindrances, and new setting rules— including how to perform Power Stunts and expand your hero's capabilities.

As long as there are superheroes to draw breath, there is a future. As long as you still stand, Earth will never go quietly into the night.

The Hellbrood War is just beginning!

Sounds great! I hope to be able to back your coming kickstarter and other endeavors.

I also found it funny that even when this book was made "unavailable/private", it still technically had a POD option available for it. It would have been hilarious to know if anybody tried buying said POD while it was technically unavailable, especially if they succeeded, simply to go "How did you do that?"

Thank you for your reply, and good luck with Sentinel City.

Since the release of Hellbrood way back in 2012 (and originally written in 2011) that super-hero setting has been merged with what was originally Autumn Arbor (now Sentinel City) into a unified Daring Comics Earth.

Phalanx and the gang still exist in New York, while the Sentinels of Society and such still exist in southern Maryland. The Necroleans will be making a return in the updated setting, and the invasion will be much, much bigger.

Imagine Vanguardian now trapped inside his alien nanotechnology armor, with the armor itself (which was always "alive") infected with the Hellspores and turned into a monster on its own. That's just some of the new nastiness in the unified setting, besides the ultra-powerful Incarnate Hellbrood.

Any idea when an Updated version of this will be available? It would be great to see it updated to SPC 2e! Thanks!

Very, very hardcore stuff (both in the difficulty and "nightmarishness" of the opponents). A super-zombie plague that can affect superheroes/supervillains, androids/robots, and even the undead (poison and disease immunity cannot save you here!). Another variation on the Atlantean Race, and forces from both the Moon and Mars, as support and allies/enemies. Cosmic-level threats and other insanity. I like it just from reading about 15 pages.

I look forward to the possibility that this could be updated for Savage Worlds SPC 2E, or even ported to the Fate system to go with the Daring Comics RPG. Even if those aren't in the plans for the future, I love this re-release already. Thank you very much.

Original electronic
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.
