You Have a Lot to Learn

GURPS is one of the rare few RPGs that lets characters improve between adventures as well as from them. The challenge is in making study interesting -- perhaps even an adventure in itself. GURPS Social Engineering: Back to School is the ideal textbook for gamers who want to learn how.

Drama geeks will like the advice on making school-based stories exciting. Nerds will appreciate the new rules for learning and teaching. Popular kids will enjoy the discussion of social success at school -- and how that translates to the community at large. Even jocks get a few words -- not many, and mostly small ones -- on body training and steroids.

And for the teachers out there, here's a summary in bullet points:

  • Expanded rules for learning -- both slowly, through study and intensive training, and quickly, by spending earned points.
  • New character-improvement options like "converting" points between skills and attributes, and treating learning as a job.
  • Game mechanics for instruction quality, covering the effects of Teaching skill rolls, texts, training equipment, and more.
  • Details on how advantages, disadvantages, skills, and techniques (including several new ones) influence learning and teaching.
  • A look at social considerations such as student-teacher loyalty, finding teachers, and making academic Patrons and Rank useful.
  • Thoughts on running campaigns that use all this stuff, whether from the viewpoint of students, teachers, or school administrators.

Read up . . . it'll all be on the test!

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.
