Modern Kyuujinjouhoushi: The Kowloon Gun God


Whether cop or killer, the underworld is the haunt of these dreaded firearm deities. Speed, accuracy and a reckless disregard for their own lives and the lives of any who oppose them have turned these pistol-wielding dervishes into the spectres of the dark city streets. These characters display an astounding and almost beautiful style of violence. Movement is an important part of the Kowloon Gun God's combat ethic-- to be still is to be dead. And no matter what the intent or equipment of an opponent, any kind of fight can quickly become a gunfight.

Not a product of the real world, the Kowloon Gun God is designed for cinematic, high-combat campaigns. While the Kowloon Gun God does not have any FX abilities per se, there is no rational explanation for some of the talents the prestige class offers. Hong Kong cinema provides the best examples of Kowloon Gun Gods, and movies like the Killer, Hard-Boiled and City on Fire show some Kowloon Gun Gods in fine form. Even Hollywood has attempted to import this icon, with movies like Face/Off, Replacement Killers and even Last Man Standing offering up English-language mayhem.

This class is a rarity in D20 Modern, structured as a 10-level prestige class, and worth every level of it. 5 pages including OGL, presented in both portrait and landscape views. Written by Fraser Ronald, author of Blood & Guts: In Her Majesty's Service and Raid on Ashkashem

Kowloon Gun God incorporates "cinematic" abilities for the type of agile character that uses modern automatics such as Glocks, SIGs or H&Ks. Lots of rounds to use, lots of acrobatic abilities. The KGG offers a prestige path beyond Gunslin [...]

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.
