Got this the other day and my friends and I have more or less fell in love with the concept, that said we tend to play online due to the fact that we all live far apart. So with that in mind are there editable versions of the PDF character sheets?

Spirit of '77 sets the bar real high for Apocalypse World games. I'm not crazy about the '70s setting, but I love all the mechanical improvements they made to the Apocalypse World game. It really is a terrific system and they took all the best parts and made some slight tweaks that dramatically improved it. This was the game that introduced me to the Apocalypse World in the first place, and after reading several products, it's still my favorite.

I read a review on Dungeon World to get a feel for the system. One thing I noticed is that the engine doesn't seem to have a mechanic to deal with injuries. Could you shed some light on how injuries/damage are handled in this game engine?

Hi Benjamin - With Spirit of 77, there are 8 levels of "Harm". When you get to level 4 and greater, you begin to "Roll With Something Less", meaning you roll three six-sided dice and then take the worst two dice rolls. It continues to worsen afterward if no medical attention is sought. Keep on truckin'!

This game is screaming for a 70s soundtrack, and the company website seemed to have a music-player but it did not work. I hope at least they put music recommendations in the book.

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.
