Hammerin' Tongs: A ROLF! Tribute to Robert E. Howard

Watermarked PDF

"Ain't no galoot gonna knock out Steve Costigan without a rematch!"

Celebrated pulp-fiction writer Robert E. Howard wrote over 300 short stories in his too-short life. The character he wrote the most about was Steve Costigan, a sea-faring prizefighter with a habit of getting into trouble. It's a character who seems tailor-made for ROLF!: The Rollplaying Game of Big Dumb Fighters!

In Hammerin' Tongs: A ROLF! Tribute to Robert E. Howard, Steve Costigan crosses paths with another Howard creation--hard-bitten police detective Steve Harrison--and they join forces to beat the heck out of the Son or Erlik Kahn and his Tong Hatchet Men.

This supplement for ROLF!: The Rollplaying Game of Big Dumb Fighters contains four pre-generated characters, three Combat Maneuvers designed to bring the feel of a Howard-written boxing tale to ROLF!, and three linked combat scenarios.


Read the stories that inspired the game, now available in a low-priced anthology from NUELOW!

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.
