The Silver Age has come and gone. Superpowers now bring fear as often as comfort and shades of grey cast the world in shadow, muting the shining colours of yesteryear. Villains have become stronger, and their influence is felt in every nation. The need for heroes is greater than ever. Can you balance superhuman gifts with humility, compassion, and hope? Do you have what it takes to resist the ever-present lure of Absolute Power?

Gorgeous wrap-around cover from the mirror-universe Season Two: Dark Empire expansion

The rich setting and characters of the Absolute Power superhero role-playing game (aka the second edition of the Silver Age Sentinels RPG) are expanded in two hardcover annuals that detail recent events, both big and small, that impacted Empire City and Sentinel-Earth. Additionally, an oversized card deck accessory profiles 136 statted NPCs across the power-level spectrum from the core book and two Season expansions. Finally, talented writers explore the game setting in 14 tales collected in The Path of Absolute Power short story anthology.

Whether you're a long-time Silver Age Sentinels fan, you've followed along since the game's 2022 rebirth, or you're a superhero gamer curious to give a new world setting a try, it's the perfect time to come along with us as we delve into Absolute Power!



Season One: Urban Warfare picks up where the core rulebook left off, detailing the events that unfolded in the Sentinel-Earth setting throughout 2021.

An unlikely band of new mutants emerge, an old master of mysticism returns, organised crime in Empire City recruit and lay siege to a superhero campus, and the White Rooks launch a surprise invasion to establish a new island fortress. Season One also details the Five Shields Corporate Park and two superhuman youth training centres – Japan’s Yamatai Academy and America’s Harrison Academy – plus dozens of minion templates, magical artefacts, and vehicle designs. Finally, full stats and character profiles are explored for 50 costumed adventurers from across the world and beyond.

This gorgeous expansion is 192 full-colour pages with beautiful illustrations from the same artist team that brought characters from the two core rule books to life. Season One: Urban Warfare features a sturdy hardcover with a durable Smyth-sewn binding that allows your book to easily lay flat and stay open to any page.


Season Two: Dark Empire picks up where Season One left off, detailing the events that unfolded in the Sentinel-Earth setting throughout 2022.

An new sovereign spirit emerges during a war in Europe, two metahuman teams clash in California, giant monsters rage in Japan and the Mediterranean, and a familiar authoritarian mirror universe invades Empire City. Season Two also details several group headquarters – The Order, Ascension Institute, Starbright Patrol, and The Untouchables – plus dozens of minion templates, magical artefacts, and vehicle designs. Finally, full stats and character profiles are explored for 50 costumed adventurers from across the world and beyond.

This second annual is expanded to 208 gorgeously illustrated, full-colour pages. Like Season One, Season Two: Dark Empire features a sturdy hardcover with a durable Smyth-sewn binding that allows your book to easily lay flat and stay open to any page.


This accessory for the Absolute Power superhero RPG features a convenient deck of 136 hero, villain, and neutral costumed adventurers. Characters are illustrated on the front of each 4” x 6” card with key game stat highlights listed on the back for quick reference, making them the prefect visual companion during gameplay. Full character profiles are presented in the Absolute Power Book One: Essentials core book and expansions Season One: Urban Warfare and Season Two: Dark Empire.


Welcome back to Empire City, the metahuman capital of the world. A cultural, financial, and political center with few rivals in Earth’s history, Empire City defines the heart of the superhero community. As the proud home of The Guard—the most successful, beloved, and influential superhero team on the planet—Empire City casts a long shadow across its universe and countless others.

The Path of Absolute Power trade paperback presents 14 tales of modern superpowered action and mystery, with dramatic adventure stories from a wide range of incredibly talented writers such as Aaron Rosenberg, Steven Harper, Lucien Soulban, Ethan Freckleton, Alan Simmons, Robin Flanagan, Devinder Thiara, Gregg Chamberlain, and others.


In addition to the pledge tiers provided, you can add on PDF-only rewards onto any pledge or physical products to any physical pledge.


Pledge for the $130 SUPERHERO tier to save $10 and receive all four new Absolute Power products. Plus, you'll receive FREE PDFs copies with your pledge – a bonus $70 value! 



You can customise your pledge to your exact specifications by selecting the reward level that most closely matches what you want to receive, and then selecting additional add-ons here in BackerKit from the pop-up list of options presented with your pledge level. For example, to add an extra $30 Heroes and Villains Deck to your $130 SUPERHERO pledge, simply choose the SUPERHERO pledge tier and then click the add button for the Heroes and Villains Deck add-on. It's that easy!

The campaign add-ons include the options below, which includes the new offerings as well as some original Absolute Power RPG products – which is deal for players new to the Absolute Power game. Many are available in only PDF form, or in a combined print+PDF bundle. Add-ons will ship with the BackerKit pledges.

  • Slipcase Edition (2-Volume Collector Set)
  • Book One: System
  • Book Two: Essentials
  • Game Screen and Adventure
  • Character Folio
  • Custom Dice Set
  • Dice Tower and Trays Kit
  • Cardboard Minis

Since we manage your pledge post-campaign in BackerKit, you'll also have the opportunity to make additional product selections at that time. Note that adding on extra items to your pledge may increase your shipping costs, as indicated in the section below.

You'll get exclusive early access to the complete digital PDFs in your pledge level (and add-ons) once you have completed the post-campaign survey in November 2023. We'll use industry leader DriveThruRPG.com to deliver all PDF content, so please ensure you have set up an account before you receive your PDF download codes. For your physical copies, your final shipping charges are remitted when you complete your pledge manager survey after the campaign.  We expect shipping of physical rewards in April 2024.

Shipping costs are detailed in the table below based on your pledge level and shipping country. Including add-ons with your pledge may increase your shipping costs. The shipping rates include import duties for US, Canada, Mexico, Europe/UK, and Australia/New Zealand, though government customs in those countries and others may levy charges that are beyond our control.

Please note that physical rewards for this Kickstarter are unavailable to ship to the following countries: Afghanistan, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine. We encourage backers living in these countries to pledge for digital rewards.


There are many excellent reasons to make a pledge during the Absolute Power Expansions BackerKit campaign, and we want to make the decision easy for you. Here are some great incentives to pledge your support:

  • Every pledge for physical book rewards also comes with FREE download copies of their PDFs from DriveThruRPG, which will be delivered in November 2023 – and that adds up to a huge savings!
  • Since PDFs of the new releases won't be made available on DriveThruRPG until later – and you'll receive your files in November – you'll have exclusive early access to the PDFs for your pledge!
  • Your pledge funds contribute towards unlocking valuable stretch goals during the campaign that allows us to give you even more Absolute Power awesomeness!
  • For physical books, we ship to our campaign backers as soon as the freight arrives in our warehouse – well before the distribution chain receives its copies. This means you'll have your copies between several weeks and a few months before they are available in stores!
  • Finally, funds from pledges like yours that push the campaign above the minimum threshold show your interest in the game and can advance work on the Absolute Power game line. This means we can reprioritise our work schedule, and allocate more resources towards creating and improving amazing future products at Dyskami. Your pledge here tells us that you want to see more Absolute Power superhero releases from us.

This direct-to-consumers campaign is a vital component for expanding the Absolute Power RPG line and distributing it worldwide. Dyskami Publishing strongly supports the efforts of independent game retailers as well, and has created a $2 retailer-only pledge level for verifiable brick-and-mortar stores. This pledge locks in your store's access to all physical products available in the campaign, including all add-ons. No further payment is due at this time. We will reach out and work you with you to complete your order in spring 2024, so your store will gain early access to the products before they are available through distribution. Please contact us directly ([email protected]) for more information about how we can work together to help support the Absolute Power RPG line at your store.

Dyskami Publishing Company is a tabletop game designer and publisher headquartered in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. In addition to the Absolute Power RPG, Dyskami Publishing also creates the BESM Fourth Edition, Anime 5E, and Tri-Stat System RPGs and accessories.
