GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 02: Dungeons

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 02: Dungeons


"You open the door, and discover a 10 by 10 room. You see a large orc, and a chest."

When adventures were just hack-n-slash, running the game was easy. Roll for the monster. Randomly determine the treasure. Move on to the next room. But how do you recreate the fun and simplicity of the dungeon crawl using the GURPS system?

Dungeon Fantasy: Dungeons shows you how to speed up combat, defeat fiendish traps, and dispose of the loot after the battle. Sean "Dr. Kromm" Punch dispenses advice and rules tweaks for GMs as well, including how to balance combat so the players are worried, but still have a fair chance; how to install those fiendish traps; and how to keep everyone -- from the bulkiest barbarian to the most wizened wizard -- involved from start to finish.

Dungeons is a quick reference guide for gamers who want a fast, fun dungeon raid, giving quick-and-dirty rules that are (mostly) compatible with the Basic Set. The shortcuts may not be too sensible outside the dungeon - it's all about adapting generic rules to the cinematic underworld. This volume focuses on running the adventure . . . look to Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers for advice on characters, both building and playing.

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.
