Gear Krieg RPG 1st Edition

Watermarked PDF

Colonel Kaufman looked down at the prone form of Jack Memphis and laughed, his gaunt visage appearing more skull-like than ever. "You can do nothing to stop us. Soon, Herr Doktor Hempell's research will be complete and we will have yet another weapon in our arsenal. When will you Amerikaners learn that no one can stand before the might of the Third Reich?"

But Jack knew better. If he could just reach the blade hidden in his belt, he could free himself and put an end to Kaufman's diabolical scheme -- and if he was very lucky, he might just teach that gloating Nazi a thing or two about old-fashioned Yankee know-how...

Imagine a world where war walkers and supertanks contend on the battlefield, rocket fighters duel high in the air, adventurers and super-spies battle the Nazis and superscience changes the face of the world on a daily basis. This is the world of Gear Krieg, a roleplaying game of two-fisted pulp action from the creators of Heavy Gear, the Jovian Chronicles and Tribe 8! This book features:

The simple and elegant Silhouette rule system, a highly acclaimed game engine that uses the classic six-sided dice;

Complete roleplaying rules, a detailed world background and a rich setting for daring adventures;

Extensive guidelines and tips for adventuring in the Modern Age;

A story generator to help jump-start the game sessions in the proper style;

Reality Distortion Levels that allow you to play the exact style of campaigns you want -- gritty WWII action or high-action Saturday morning serial;

A rule interface to merge roleplaying with the tactical wargame (not included).

Whether it'd be intrigues under the burning sun of North Africa, the duels of a daring rocket fighter squadron or the exploits of a group of dastardly misfit Marines in the jungle hell of the Pacific, adventure is sure to be found everywhere you look!

Gear Krieg: the RPG is a complete game -- no other manual is required to play. You will need a few six-sided dice, pen, paper and 2-6 players aged 12 and above.

Scanned image
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.
