Every so often, there comes an adventure so grim and gritty, so revolutionary, and so serious that it elevates the super-spy thriller genre to new levels of sophistication.

GURPS Lair of the Fat Man is not that adventure.

This espionage tale, set in the early 1980s, pits the heroes against each other as part of a multinational team called UNISTOMP. Can these super-spies trust each other and their cohorts' nations enough to save the world, protect their countries' secrets, and learn the truth about the Fat Man? GURPS Lair of the Fat Man is an oddball romp through super-spy clichés, in the style of 1960s espionage films that don't take themselves too seriously.

This scenario includes five pages of maps of the Fat Man's lair (plus ancillary maps), full information about the Fat Man's plans, and GURPS stats for the Fat Man's henchmen. It provides lots of helpful advice for running this tale, including details about how to keep things from getting too silly, ideas for sequels or making this part of an ongoing campaign, and alternate possibilities for the Fat Man's curious secret . . . including suggestions for making it more or less realistic!

If double agents, brainwashed "zombies," and a flamethrower brassiere are your cup of tea (or glass of martini), then GURPS Lair of the Fat Man is for you!

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.
