Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.99

The members of Hartwell College’s Egyptian expedition attend a séance to humor Mrs. Wittingham, a wealthy widow they hope will help fund their archaeological activities. When sinister forces abduct her from her hotel room, the heroes embark on a quest to find Mrs. Wittingham, defeat a band of antiquities thieves, and liberate a lost temple from looters.


This 12-page scenario includes maps, pre-generated characters, and a copy of the Any-System Key so gamers can easily adapt this system-neutral adventure to their favorite roleplaying game rules. Check out this free scenario to get a feel for the kinds of adventures you can play in the Pulp Egypt sourcebook available from Griffon Publishing Studio.


Praise for Pulp Egypt:


“THIS is how you write a sourcebook…. Well-researched, logically structured, informative without being pedantic, and written in a very professional – yet surprisingly easy-to-read – style.”

-- Roger J. S., review


“This is one of those rarities in modern RPG publishing -- the kind of book that makes me smile, nod, and occasionally jump around in my seat in childlike delight.”

-- S. John Ross, the Blue Room


“From what I’ve seen it’s a mighty impressive piece of work that covers Egypt 1933-39 superbly for gaming. Check it out!”

-- Steve Long, Hero Games


“It’s a damn fine piece of work. I highly recommend it.”

-- Colin Chapman, RPG Freelancer


“The sourcebook PDF is well worth the money; if you plan to set a campaign in Egypt, I’d call it a necessity.”

-- Linwood, Exile Games forums


“I absolutely LOVE this book, and it is designed to be used with just about any game system.”

-- Madwabbit, Exile Games forums

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.
