The Meat Lover's Guide To The Post Apocalypse...Because Even Half-Crazed, Mutant Road Savages Get Hungry Once In Awhile.

The Meat Lover's Guide to the Post Apocalypse is a small but information packed guide book that allows the players and the game master (GM) of a post apocalyptic setting a general set of rules for harvesting meat from slain animals and monstrous creatures. This book takes real world information, concepts, and methods of hunting and meat preparation and condenses such knowledge into a format that is readily accessible to the GM and minimizes the headaches of prior research. However, just because the information is condensed, this doesn't mean that this book lacks in diversity or flexibility in regards to the subject of harvesting meat. If you are a player or a GM that would simply be happy with just saying, “okay, you each have three days of food after butchering the atomic cow”, then this is not the guide book for you. Honestly, you simply make that up off the top of your head and it would be probably fine without further examination or research. However, if you are the type of GM that wants a more realistic approach to harvesting the meat from even the most unrealistic of mutated monsters, then this is the post apocalyptic supplement for you.

The contents of this book begins with a chart of several real world animals. Included in this chart is the average weight of such an animal, the type of creature it is, the amount of consumable meats, organs, etc. that one could expect to harvest from such a creature, and also the average calorie intake of 1 pound of the creature's consumable meat, organs, etc. From there you will find a section on how to establish the same general guidelines for mutated, monstrous creatures as well as other animals not already included in the basic charts. In addition to this information, the reader is provided with a wealth of additional information. Such information includes, but is not limited to, figuring out how many days worth of food a creature yields based on the calorie intake of the characters, issues with spoilage and how to properly preserve meat, and notes on the damage to potential meat harvests that is caused by wounding or killing a creature in combat.

On a final, but very important note, this guidebook is developed in a manner that makes it system generic. Thus, it is compatible with most, with not all, tabletop, paper and dice role playing games that are based on a post apocalyptic Earth. When developing the product, the author recognized that there are multiple takes on what a post apocalyptic environment would be like. Some simply incorporate the aspects of a zombie uprising, with no other truly out of the ordinary elements, while others go for a very exotic world full of strange, exotic mutations. Some, on the other hand, a middle of the road ground that is very gritty and full of skullduggery and desperation. The “road nomad” style post apocalyptic movies of the 1980's are good examples of this vision.
Whether your world contains exotic mutated creatures, or simply the currently existing animals of the world, this guide book will provide you with the basics of guiding the adventuring party in their quest of staying alive to fight another day.

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.
