Successfully Kickstarted in October 2015m Road to Armageddon: Modern Encounters is the latest book from the well known co-author of Space Opera, Phillip McGregor.

The dogs of war have been loosed – the world is facing down nuclear and biological Armageddon between the West and two ruthless power blocs aiming at nothing less than total victory and the complete emasculation and/or destruction of anyone who opposes their cultural dominance.

The struggle between these blocs has been going on for years, but has only recently become a hot war ... normally called the Three Way War in the west, the Anti-Imperialist War in the Russo-Japanese alliance and the New Jihad in the Islamic states ... and a nasty one.

Rationing is commonplace, consumer goods in short supply or, in some cases, completely unavailable ... even the militaries of the nations involved have begun to suffer from the inability of their damaged national economies to build the needed equipment for their expanding war efforts (or, indeed, even to repair or replace damaged equipment).

It is against this background that your campaign will be set, and in this book you will find a comprehensive system for describing the region in which you have chosen to set your campaign and also determining the nature of any encounters – pre-planned or random – that your players will come across in the course of their adventures.

Not only are encounters described in generic terms, a large number of more detailed encounters based on the generic outcomes is also provided – and include additional information to allow them to be further customized, or to create custom encounters of that general type from scratch in ways that will hopefully make them memorable, if not unique.

This book covers the world of the Three Way War in the period immediately prior to The Exchange – when the damage caused by worldwide conflict on a huge scale had already caused severe damage – as well as the period after that nuclear spasm, when things are much, much worse – and yet where the combatants simply cannot end the conflict.

A Print on Demand version of this Book is currently in preparation. Those who purchases this PDF version before its release will receive a discount coupon for the print version as soon as it is released.

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.
