LURPS Core Rules

Suggested Price $13.99

LURPS! The core rulebook for Lewis' Unified Role-Playing System. 

Step inside to a world full of filthy peasants, disgusting nobility, gunpowder and magic. A ruleset for a fantasy RPG set somewhere in the Georgian era that seeks to be an excellent secondary game after you've tried popular d20 games. Its easy to learn and get started.

Core features include:

  • No classes, all point-buy. Build your character your way, straight from the start. There are no arbitrary restrictions for skills, feats or abilities, nor any need to plan several levels in advance.
  • D6 dice pool. All you need are a few six-sided dice.
  • Tightly designed freeform magic system. No more hunting for optimal spell lists, nor having to argue about what exactly can or can't be done.
  • More options for martial characters. Perform fancy feats of sword work with the Special move system.

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.
