Description:

System: M&M Superlink.

 

As with any roleplaying game, the players’ characters are the center of attention. It is a trapping of the genres that roleplaying games emulate, stretching back to the most basic myths and legends. Though the heroes remain the focus of the stories told in comic books, the ancillary characters, the supporting cast, are often just as important and iconic as the heroes themselves.

Whether it is a hero’s trusted butler, love interest, or professional rival, these supporting characters serve as an important part of the hero’s mythology. They become part of the fabric of the hero’s life and the dual nature of any costumed crimefighter serves to complicate those relationships. An employer in the hero’s civilian life might also serve as a powerful antagonist to that same hero’s costumed identity.

The Supporting Cast series of short supplements from Big Finger Games provides a plug-and-play solution to a hero’s need for dramatic resonance with the incidental characters he or she deals with on a daily basis. The supporting characters contained within can be plugged into a new hero’s background or be introduced into an existing campaign. They provide a useful story base and infrastructure and can be used to flesh out a setting even if they aren’t directly tied to any of the heroes.

Supporting Cast: The Daily Standard details a major metropolitan newspaper and its staff. Included are backgrounds and stats for three of the major characters at the Standard, brief write-ups for five other staff members, a Heroic Reporter template, eight adventure hooks, and ideas for incorporating the Daily Standard into your campaign and using it as a springboard for drama and adventure.

Check out Big Finger Games' complete line of M&M Superlink supplements!

As the boilerplate introduction to the Supporting Cast line states, superheroes are surrounded by lots of "ordinary people." The Supporting Cast line aims to present NPCs that GMs can drop into just about any Mutants & Masterminds campaign, and the Daily [...]

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.
