Fists and .45s!

Suggested Price $2.00

Before there were Comic books there were the Pulps. Before Batman, Superman, and Captain America, there was Doc Savage, The Shadow, and Tarzan. Pulps in the literal sense are not a genre, but derived their moniker from the cheap “pulpy” paper the stories were printed upon. The stories found on those pages ranged from Sci-Fi and Fantasy to Mysteries, Romance and Westerns.

Over time, the term “Pulp Adventure” has evolved and narrowed its focus to the time between the great wars while still bearing the markings of the spectacular stories of the pulps, often where larger than life heroes would set forth to stop the sinister plot of a diabolic and mysterious villain in some exotic location.

Everything needed for those kind of adventures is located on the pages of Fists & .45s! just add dice!

I bought this on a whim at a vey low price. I now regret having paid so little as this is great little game that I would readily have paid more for.
While most game have generic core, I love that even the core stats are focused on the Pulp genre with “Moxie” instead of willpower for example. The art is mostly from the period and so also adds to the feel. I’m trying to gather a group for an adventure I’m converting from an old Justice Inc campaign (3rd Ed champions old).

I love doing those kinds of pulp cover repurposings. Mayve if you post the number of pages it would guide people to calculate a price; or a peek inside. I'd pay something but don't want to get 8 pages of something I don't like. 40 pages of something I don't like is worth the gamble. :)

Love the cover! You might still want to add a preview PDF, just to convince people to sign in and add it to their account.

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.
