Society is built on the backs of people who gather resources and turn them into food, shelter, and finished goods. Low-Tech Companion 3: Daily Life and Economics looks at the lot of ordinary TL0-4 folk -- much of which is of concern to adventurers, too! Contents include:

  • Food. How to gather and prepare it, whether you're raising crops or hunting game on the way to your next adventure.
  • Domesticated Animals. Stats for common beasts as sources of both labor and food.
  • Big Machines. Costs, weights, and performance figures for heavy construction and industrial equipment.
  • Manufacturing. Work out how long it takes to make that nifty new sword and how much it costs -- and learn secrets that would make it better!
  • Construction. Detailed rules for erecting buildings of all sorts, from log cabins to Gothic cathedrals.
  • Transportation. Guidelines for hauling and shipping almost anything, with stats for low-tech merchant vessels.
  • Occupations. Details about many common jobs, complete with new Professional Skills and practical advice on thriving as a merchant.

If you're not satisfied with fantasy worlds where nobody gets his hands dirty and everything is for sale at the market, then Low-Tech Companion 3: Daily Life and Economics is for you.

Low-Tech Companion 3: Daily Life and Economics is a supplement to GURPS Low-Tech. The information on manpower, manufacturing, and resources would be useful in any campaign that values historical realism.

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.
