GM'S COOKBOOK: Superhero Plot Hooks #1


System: Any, contains no rules-specific material.


While the scenario, the ongoing plotline, provides the meat in any campaign, a good Gamemaster needs more ingredients to add substance to the adventure, she occasionally needs to spice up slower parts of a gaming session. With that in mind Big Finger Games offers the GM’s Cookbook line of pdfs.

GM’s Cookbook: Superhero Plot Hooks #1 provides eleven hooks for your four-color superhero roleplaying game

<o:p></o:p>A plot hook is just what it sounds like. It’s that kernel of an idea, a premise that you can develop and flesh out, turning it into a scenario or subplot for the hero or heroes in your campaign. Use these hooks to jumpstart your imagination and weave the resulting ideas into the existing plot threads of your campaign to create something uniquely suitable for your game.

Check out Big Finger Games' complete line of GM's Cookbooks (color-coded by genre)!

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.
