Rule #1: Never take the job lightly.

Rule #2: There's always another way.

Rule #3: Don't get caught.

Some of us just don't fit in with the rest of the world. Sure, we can hold down a steady job, collect a paycheck, raise a family, and blend in, but not without stirring up the shit. Trying to be something you're not comes out eventually. Aggression, anger, drug abuse, whatever your poison is. Some of us have demons. Some of us have issues. But some of us - a select few - have a gift we can't deny.

Someone has to do what needs doing. Someone's gotta pull the trigger and someone's gotta die. That's the job. It's the gritty world of professional hitmen, contract killers, and assassins; the world of Killshot. The short and sweet of it? You're assassins hired to kill for money. Bombers, enforcers, snipers, burglars, techs, and hunters are just the top of the pile for co-workers. You'll work together as a Team to get it done right the first time because you don't get a second chance in this business. Either the client will kill you, your broker will deny she knows you, or the cops will pound on your door at 6AM. 

Killshot's designed to provide players with an intense, immersive experience using the flexibility and rapid pace of the Optional System combined with the strategy and co-operation of a tactical war game. Players must devise a plan of action to get the job done right or find themselves staring at the rest of their lives behind bars. Every phase of the job bears equal importance and is not complete until the players have successfully made off without leaving any clues.

The Director's Cut is your ultimate guide to being an assassin or a Director, the one calling all the shots. Every rule, every focus, every weapon, every modifier, and every Evidence Point can be found here in full color and layers to turn off background, sidebars, images, and more. With this book, you'll have everything you need to pull off a couple of jobs or start and entire career.

After an introduction in which the author speaks of how a car wreck gave him the time and focus to create this wholly-new game system, channelling all the frustrations of recovery into writing, we find that the book is divided into two distinct parts: [...]

One of the thing I like about this game is its modern day setting, with no superpowers, psychic abilities, or supernatural critters. The characters are all assassins, and play consists in trying to eliminate marks, normally for pay. The setting is [...]

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.
