GURPS Classic: Timeline


Time on Your Hands?

GURPS Timeline is the ultimate resource for the Time Travel GM. It presents all of human history – from the Big Bang to Operation Desert Storm – in a convenient, easy-to-use chronology. History is big, but GURPS Timeline makes it easy for the GM to find his way around.

GURPS Timeline also presents the GM with more than 50 historical "adventure seeds" describing particularly important, exciting, or bizarre eras and settings for Time Travel adventures – with the spotlight on the stuff you don't get in history class.

With GURPS Timeline, time travelers can ride with El Cid, battle the merciless armies of Assyria, hunt for the treasure of the Lost Dutchman Mine, visit the mystical lost continent of Lemuria, or unravel the secret of the Mary Celeste.

Time thieves can loot history for the spoils of Alexander's conquests, plunder Rome during a barbarian raid, or steal gold from the Aztecs with Cortez and the Spanish conquerors.

Also included are detailed descriptions of exotic ancient cultures like the Sumerians, the Olmecs, the Minoans, the Hohokam, and the Persians.

From war to intrigue to technology to art to enigma, GURPS Timeline opens all of history to adventure and drama.

(This is a digital reprint of a GURPS Third Edition product.)

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.
