The legends and myths of old greek and other ancient civilizations are full of heroes and anti-heroes who have abilities and powers beyond the pale, powers which were often the result of kinship to a god or half-good, a gift of one or something that had been stolen from them. Our more modern stories, like the adventure and fantasy novels (and comics) of the pulp-area, feature such powers as well, but their relation to gods and tribe totems is a more blurred one.

So why should we as GM, as the storytellers of our time, not use such mighty powers as well?  This title contains 50 examples of mythic abilities (or “fantasy super powers”) that might have been bestowed onto a character as a gift of the gods, or through blood relations to them. The GM may use them to enhance NPC (both good and foul), or to grant a selection of them to the PC in a campaign where heroes set forth to achieve their destiny (or to change it).

They may also be useful to a GM who wants to created mythic tribes or (player-)races like “the Atlantians” or “the Tribe of the Wind-God” (with matching powers).

Warning! The abilities are not balanced in regard to each other. When a word in a text appears in brackets, it is meant as an [option] that the GM my replace with something that is more fitting for the individual game or game world. When a Saving Throw is mentioned, it is up to the GM which one is fitting (so usually a Saving Throw vs. Magic should do the trick).

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.
