GURPS Classic: Horror: Chaos in Kansas


Beware of the Dire Dreamer . . .

Tom Heskith, the son of a rich Kansas oilman, has disappeared! Was he kidnapped? Did he run away? Or perhaps something a bit more sinister is going on . . .

Chaos in Kansas is an adventure sourcebook for GURPS Horror and GURPS Cliffhangers. In The Dire Dreamer the characters will be swept up into a web of mystery and terror as they seek to find the missing person . . . without losing their lives or their sanity in the process.

Then it's on to The Cement Works, where the workers are ready to go on strike, the equipment is taking on a life of its own, and things are not always as they seem . . .

Liberty, Kansas, is the backdrop for the adventure. This sleepy little town (population: 9,832) is the typical Kansas city of the 1930s . . . or is it? Strange disappearances and mysterious noises are becoming disturbingly frequent. Over 45 locations in the town are detailed, including restaurants, speakeasies, hotels and many other locations. NPCs such as Sheriff Don Barr and the moonshining Compton boys are provided to flesh out both the adventure and an ongoing campaign. Minor NPCs are detailed in the locations in which they are encountered.

Chaos in Kansas provides the gamemaster with everything needed for a Cliffhangers campaign, including a map of Liberty and surrounding environs, hints on how to leave the players hanging from adventure to adventure, and ideas for using Liberty in future adventures.

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.
