Heroes and Villains RPG

Watermarked PDF


Jack awoke to the cold shock of water on his face. His head spun as if he'd just had a night on the town and his vision was blurry. The raucous sounds of the Amazonian jungle were oddly muffled, but audible. He briefly took comfort in the fact that his ears were at least working properly - until he actually started to listen to what he was hearing.

"Good morning Herr Memphis," an all-too-familiar voice hissed from in front of him. "It is good to see that the drug's effects are finally wearing off. We were worried that you might remain unconscious and miss out on a demonstration of Doktor Hempell's latest scientific triumph..."

Daring heroes, brutal thugs and mastermind villains confront one another for the future of civilization as a world-wide war rages around them. 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 sourcebook features:

  • Extensive guidelines and tips for adventuring in the pulp-style Modern Age;
  • Design notes and suggested backgrounds for both heroic and villainous characters;
  • Dozens of data files on famous heroes, sidekicks, henchmen and villains;
  • A headquarter generator to provide both heroes and villains with proper housing;
  • New perks, flaws and superscience gadgets.

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.
