Absolute Power: A Sourcebook for Sentinels of Echo City

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

Absolute Power is the first full sourcebook for the Sentinels of Echo City RPG, expanding on the character creation rules from the core game. Included are all the rules you need for using pre-generated characters, guidelines for modeling characters from comics and movies, and a robust random character generation system. You can use this to build characters for your Sentinels of Echo City game, or you can do like I do all the time, and just use this to make hundreds of wonky random supers for fun.

Don’t judge me.

Since it uses the OGL, the basic mechanics and terms should be familiar, and because it’s released under a Creative Commons Share-Alike License, you can publish your own supers anywhere and anyhow you’d like.

Also, because of the incredible support of the Splintered Realm Community, I’m offering this as a pay-what-you-want download. You can spend the day making superheroes, and do it for free! It’s like Christmas in July. Only without the Christmas. Or the July.

This is pretty awesome, and a great expansion to the Sentinels rules! Any chance it'll be available in print? I'd happily buy it.

Thanks, Chris.

Right now, I don't plan to release this in print as-is. I want to wait until I have 2-3 sourcebooks out and collect them. I see the print editions being 120-160 pages each, so I wanted to wait until I had that much content before putting things in print. This also gives me a little time to make sure no errata show up that are much harder to fix once the thing is in print.

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.
