A man in crazy pajamas atop a skyscraper rains laser death down on the streets. He's laughing as he does it.

Below, fires bloom for the news cameras. Reporters duck debris as they yammer on about demands and manifestoes and terror.

Meanwhile, in the background, the screams of scorched innocents melt into the wail of sirens.

It makes me angry. My cheeks burn with it -- or that just might be from the wind.

The madman grows closer and closer, impossibly fast. His eyes widen as he lifts his weapon in my direction. He won't make it in time.

My hands tighten into fists as I brace for impact.

I have a set of crazy pajamas of my own.

 


"Rarely is a mechanic so simple and elegant at emulating another medium. . . Truth & Justice is nearly perfect at the narrative form of comics."

-- Ross Winn


Superhero stories celebrate heroism and "mad, beautiful ideas" in adventurous, stylish, and fun ways; Truth & Justice (T&J) is the new superhero RPG from Atomic Sock Monkey Press dedicated to just that. Fast, fun, and streamlined, T&J:

  • Encourages the sense of freewheeling imagination and improvisation that suffuses superhero media.
  • Offers concepts to bridge the gap between comic book stories and superhero gaming sessions.
  • Stresses the importance of a hero's motivations, personal ties, and behavior alongside their more-than-human abilities in transcending limitations and overcoming obstacles.
  • Focuses on how capable the character is from the context of a superhero story-game rather than strictly simulating reality.
  • Emphasizes quick and flexible character generation.

T&J is available as a 133 page (~7.2 MB) book containing:

  • An exploration of superhero tropes. How to approach them to help get what you want out of superhero roleplaying, whether you're a player or a GM, and advice for using them inside a game.
  • A complete game system. The Prose Descriptive Qualities (PDQ) System from Dead Inside and Monkey, Ninja, Pirate, Robot: the RPG has been refined for T&J, streamlined and chromed-up for superheroic flexibility, simplicity, and speed. Different levels of task resolution, suitable for any type of situation, let you detail the encounters that really matter.
  • Three sample settings. Become the champions of Drakesville when its signature hero gets promoted to the majors in Second-String Supers. Navigate the twisty path between altruism and greed in the futuristic world of SuperCorps. Discover who you truly are and change the world in Fanfare for the Amplified Man. Each setting comes with adventure seeds and introductory scenarios.

Are you ready for some truth & justice? Grab your cape, cowl, and utility belt and go!

At first I wasn't sure about this game and only bought it because of the recommendation of a friend. I'm glad I did. The game is simple, easy to learn and great for one-shot superhero games as well as full blown campaigns. For GMs this game is a good [...]

Truth & Justice is easily my favorite supers rpg, hands down. With its working the PDQ system further to support a style that is heavy on role-playing and trifling on the over-complication that would force too much detail out of character generation befor [...]

The PDQ system makes for a quick and easy dive into a four-color super hero game. There are helpful settings to use in the game, but the real fun would be making up your own. This is an indie game and the art sometimes suffers throughout the game; however [...]

The T & J rules are innovative and rewarding if you like a free form style of RPG rules. The system translates the 4 color Comic Book genre very well. QUALITY: Very Good VALUE: Satisfied [...]

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.
