E.N. Mini-Games - With A Bullet (A Gun-Fu Adventure)

Watermarked PDF

This product is a supplementary adventure for EN Publishing's Gun-Fu: Balletic Ballistics mini-game. You will need a copy of Gun-Fu: Balletic Ballistics in order to run this adventure.

Boss Tanaka is not a man who minces his words. His deal is offered in simple, direct terms. "My man in Lombok is Tony Ashgar. Once you're through customs, get a cab to his bar, the Highlight. All the airport cabbies know it. Tony'll pay you there."

Now, riding in a taxicab just as Tanaka suggested, the whole thing seems simple enough. Smuggle medical goods past Customs and the scowling but insufficiently diligent guards, and then a week's holiday sampling the delights of this dubious metropolis. The bags were placed in your hands, handed over to baggage check, claimed at Lombok International and loaded into the trunk of the first available taxi. The taxi now crawls slowly through streets choked with vehicles and pedestrians, scooters and heavy trucks competing for space. All around the noise is deafening, the smell indescribable, and you can't help but with the taxi had air conditioning. All the same, it seems like time to relax, to celebrate. With the goods safely stowed in your backpacks in the trunk, the hard part is already over.

Until that loonie comes surging out of the crowd, swinging a satchel in one hand. A satchel that he releases into the air, and all you can do is watch as it arcs straight towards your open windows...

With A Bullet is a Gun-Fu adventure for 5th-level heroes. You'll need the Gun-Fu: Balletic Ballistics game in order to make perfect sense of everything in here, so go buy it now if you haven't already. It's cheap. And easy!

Our heroes find themselves in a taxicab on a crowded street in a troubled nation. They have entered into an agreement to smuggle medical supplies to a local dealer named Tony, and so far all has gone well. All ceases to go well, however, when the taxicab is targeted by a random terrorist bomber and the crowd around them erupts in gunfire. They are forced to make their way through streets crowded with suspicious military forces, and must use their wits to avoid capture and summary execution.

Fortunately, this Tony they seek is a sympathetic sort, especially after pursuing forces break into his bar, resulting in a pitched gun battle in true Gun-Fu style. By this time our heroes are no doubt ready to leave this treacherous place, and Tony is only to happy to oblige them. Unfortunately, Tony has himself been betrayed, by the sinister figure who first hired our heroes, and more bullets must fly before the dust can settle.

This adventure features six primary encounters, several of which can occur in any order (or not at all). Of course PCs are a contrary lot, so the adventure is flexible enough to accommodate multiple scenarios. Make sure you read each encounter over carefully and have the whole story in your head before you start running this adventure. This is not a location-based adventure, so you won't find detailed maps or keyed descriptions. A Gun-Fu game is more concerned with drama and vast amounts of ordinance, anyway, right?

Well, it should be. This adventure is meant to not only show up the rules of Gun-Fu, but to provide some inspiration on HOW this game is best played. You'll discover as you read through the adventure that many encounters feature indeterminate numbers of opponents, and indeed even the very "plot" of the adventure is not spelled out clearly here -- WHY the bad guys are out to kill the good guys will actually depend on the actions of the players. Keep in mind that a Gun-Fu adventure is not primarily a static challenge for the players to overcome -- it is a stage upon which cool things can happen.

This is your stage. Get cool...

It has been said that there are two types of good game masters. Those that are complete control freaks - the kind that meticulously track every aspect of their game and swamp the players with detail. And then there are the Gm?s that are masters of wing [...]

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.
