Common Criminals: Series 1


The mean streets are full of criminals from all walks of life. Some have taken up crime as purely as a means of survival while others simply choose to get ahead in life by breaking the rules. Regardless of their situations in life, all these individuals have one thing in common. They have become outlaws.

This first series of Common Criminals features background information for six different crooks and thugs. Nature of crimes range from drug dealing to prostitution to money laundering. Although much of the information presented in this modern gaming supplement is self explanatory, having a copy of Common Criminals: Companion Guide never hurts. This is especially true when using the attribute score points to convert characters over to the game system of your choice. All Game Masters (GMs) are recommended to download this free pdf. Common Criminals: Companion Guide can be found on and Be sure to pick up Common Criminals: Pilot-Promo as well for an additional criminal to add to your collection. This file is also free and can be found at the same resources online.

Very well developed and creative characterization. A definite must-have for those into more modern games. Not safe for work or with those who are easily offended, but this information is made quite clear in the product description. [...]

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.
