THE LOWDOWN

It’s the hot and steamy, larger than life 70s in a big city somewhere in crime riddled America. You are not quite heroes and not quite bad guys, connected by blood or neighborhood. You have a calling or a job to do, something to make right against all odds and at all costs. The Man is out to get you and your enemies are numerous, ruthless and got Kung Fu. All you got is your wits, skill and the friends by your side. Failure is not an option. It is time to get funky or get dead!

What do you need to play?

A few friends to play with, one of you will be a player that takes the mantle of Funk Master and runs the game for you, the others are players and will create some cats to cruise around in the city. Every one of you needs a few six sided dice (d6), best are three. A piece of paper to write up your character (or one of the character sheets from the back) and of course a pen to take down notes. Funky music is a must have, afro and bell-bottomed trousers are optional. And this PDF.

Create your character based on the five core attributes Buff, Foxy, Groove, Soul and Wit. Select a Career to get a starting trait from a dozen available, including:

  • BAD MOFO Always being the meanest cat in your hood has advantages.
  • COP You protect and serve your community with passion and integrity.
  • HOT STUFF You always breezed by on your looks and demeanour alone.
  • MARTIAL ARTS MASTER You train in the finest and deadliest of martial arts.
  • PREACHER You are the inspiring voice of the Lord for your flock.
  • WAR VETERAN They turned you into a killing machine and now you are home.
  • and more...
Select the Thing, an archetype defining what you are really good at for an additional trait. For example: 
  • AVENGER – Delivering swift and harsh justice where the law does not reach.
  • HUSTLER– Sweet talking cat, charmer and dealer, being “friendly” with everyone.
  • SLEUTH– Obsessed with a crime or story, won’t stop until the truth is uncovered.
  • and more...

And finally the Event that got you on your path. A hook to get the game started and give the Funk Master something to latch unto as well as giving your character a final trait.

The core mechanic is simple: Roll 2d6 modified by Advantages and Disadvantages from traits and situational circumstances. Every 5+6 you roll is a success. That's it. There is a bit more to it but not much. Easy and fast for groovy action!

This PDF contains all you need to begin play immediately. There are a variety of random generators, from street names to clothing styles, names and of course adventure seeds and locations to quickstart your imagination.

Format
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.
