Superscience RPG Sourcebook

Watermarked PDF

The old man coughed and looked up with a defiant smile. "I do not have much time left and I face a great fear. There are dark forces growing in power each passing day; any time I had to use my abilities to help stop them has passed. I don't think the Allies have the ability to effectively fight them -- now. But that can change.

"As you know, I have served as an advisor to the U.S. government on research and technology. And as you can plainly see, I can no longer perform this duty. If we are to be able to defend ourselves against what I believe to be the inevitable resurgence of world-wide warfare, we need a strong advisor on technology and science. Your country needs you!"

There is a world where war walkers and supertanks contend on the battlefield, and rocket fighters duel high in the air. A world where adventurers and super-spies battle the Nazis across the globe, and great evil is faced with great courage - with a little help from Science. This is the world of Gear Krieg!


This sourcebook for the Gear Krieg Roleplaying game covers the weird and wonderful inventions of the pulp genre: combat walkers, jet packs, electric guns and other "weird science" devices that change the face of the world on a daily basis. The book has guidelines on how to add pulp vehicles and items in a campaign, along with hints and adventure ideas to jumpstart any game. This book features:


  • An history of Superscience in the Modern Age;
  • Overview of the major fields of research and invention;
  • Biographies of major scientists and other important characters;
  • Plot hooks and adventure seeds for all types of campaigns and locations;
  • Extensive guidelines and tips to incorporate superscience in pulp-style adventuring;
  • Sample archetypes and vehicles with datacards.

You will need a copy of Gear Krieg: the Roleplaying Game, a few six-sided dice, pen and paper to use this manual.

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.
