It is 2374. You are the Rockin' Exercise Federation’s finest expeditionary force – the Muscle Marines. Formed in the aftermath of an alien invasion of earth, you have been sent into deep space to find the home-world of humanity’s arch-enemy, the Zentlazi. Your mission is to defeat this vile foe, who even now seeks to destroy your command ship and recover the coordinates to earth, which they lost in the final battle when the REF destroyed the Zentlazi command ship. Once they find a path back to earth, the Zentlazi intend to end fitness forever and imprison everyone on plush couches. You must reconnoiter the Delt Quadrant for Brotoculture Artifacts that can bring and end to the conflict for once and for all. 

About the game

This is a ZineQuest role-playing game based on 2017 200 Word RPG finalist Might Makes Right: Muscle Marines in Space. LIFTS: Ultimate Pump Edition is a game about becoming strong and healthy. A game based on exercise might seem intimidating at first, but it’s a game you can play no matter your physical ability. In fact, progression is built right in: the more you play LIFTS: Ultimate Pump Edition, the better at it you’ll become.

How does this work?

LIFTS: Ultimate Pump Edition is a game for about five players. The strongest player is the Muscle Master, who runs the game, describing situations and people. When you disagree with the Muscle Master about something happening in the game, you’ve engaged in a conflict. Depending on the type of conflict you're involved in, you and the Muscle Master will engage in a physical competition. For example, if you're trying to convince a local magistrate to let you into a city, you and the Muscle Master will see who can complete more sit-ups (because as everyone knows, sick abs win arguments).

But wait, there's more! 

In addition to the expanded engine featured in Roboflex, this zine is jam-packed with supplements (including Deadlifts & Dragons, Muscle of the Week, and Vampire: The Muscle Gain) that expose your group to different aspects of exercise and healthy living. Each supplement builds upon the base LIFTS: Ultimate Pump Edition system to introduce a different aspect of fitness.

Not just a brilliant and hilarious send-up of some older more famous games, but a fresh take on tabletop gaming focusing on safe physical exercise. Even as an old man, I can manage the low-impact body weight exercises used in contests. It can be [...]

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.
