Arsenal Cards: Volume 3: Rifles


Rifles have long had a place in history, and a place in role playing games set in certain historical periods. From the American Civil War and the Wild West, to the battlefields of World War I and World War II, and to the jungles of Africa, Asia, and <st1:place>South America</st1:place> prowled by hunters, rifles have played a pivotal role. The third volume of Arsenal Cards features rifles - shoulder-fired weapons with a barrel cut with grooves (rifling). (Future volumes will feature muskets, semi-automatic rifles, assault weapons, and other types of long arms.) 

Within this volume you will find over 130 different rifles, from the famous: "that damned Yankee rifle that they load on Sunday and shoot all week!" (the Henry Rifle) to "The Gun that Won the West" (Winchester Model 1873), to the infamous (such as the Carcano rifle used in the assassination of President Kennedy), to everything in between. Each card features a full color image of the rifle printed on one side, and detailed information about the weapon, from caliber to range, and years of production on the other. We used actual ballistic calculations for each weapon to determine each rifle's Power and Recoil. 

Arsenal Cards: Volume 3: Rifles are a great tool to aid players and GMs in visualizing their weapons and to provide more detail and variety to your game. They are designed to be used in any game system.

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.
