GURPS Thaumatology: Age of Gold


"I'm an alchemist," snarled the masked mystery man. "You crooks try to shoot me" -- he thumped his fist into his palm -- "and I'll turn your lead bullets into gold teeth."

In the world of the 1930s, costumed crimefighters clash with cunning criminals. The eldritch forces that empowered Merlin and Circe have emerged anew. With two-fisted research and fearless forays to far lands, a new generation of adventurers is making its mark. It's a time of mysticism, an era of heroism, and an Age of Gold!

GURPS Thaumatology: Age of Gold is a campaign background designed for use with the systems in GURPS Thaumatology. It includes the history of this alternate Earth, plus detailed rules for its most common forms of magic and alchemy. Players get guidelines for creating their cliffhanging crimefighters or mysterious super-powered masked men. GMs get three sample adversaries plus campaign and setting advice for this magical throwback to the Golden Age of pulps. With Thaumatology: Age of Gold, the next issue of pulse-pounding excitement is yours to conjure!

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.
