After a first skim-through this game seems really neat, but the lack of digital table of contents for the 50 pg core rulebook makes the idea of running it feel very stressful. Any chance this could be added in an update?
A downloadable game
Anti-Heroes is a game about super-powered people trying to make their way in the world. They might be villains, vigilantes, cons, or even real heroes. The game is inspired by comics like Suicide Squad, the Punisher, The Watchmen and The Boys.
Anti-Heroes uses the Forged in the Dark system introduced in John Harper's Blades in the Dark RPG. It is a fiction first rule set that encourages players to "play to see what happens." In Anti-Heroes, the rules are stripped down to the core for simplicity and flexibility. Eight categories of super powers make it easy to create nearly any type of character you want. Characters with the same power can describe its manifestation and effects in very different ways. For example, one anti-hero with the shapeshifter power may be able to stretch their arms and legs to incredible lengths, while another may use the power to shape their hands into sledgehammers.
Anti-Heroes also includes a collaborative city building 'game' that uses dice a cards to build a unique setting for your characters.

I’ll see what I can do, but it may take a while. I do hope that the rule summary is comprehensive enough where you won’t need to refer to the book during play.
I appreciate the comment.
