Grit and Bullets

Watermarked PDF

Grit and Bullets was inspired by Microlite2020 which in turn was inspired by Microlite20. If you are familiar with Microlite20 the primary difference is the replacement of the four (or in some versions five) set Skills with Backgrounds chosen by the player. Also, rather than races there are Classes.

It seems to me that there are three sub-genres of Western themed role playing games:

  1. Realistic,

  2. Cinematic, and

  3. Weird West.

The core rules of Grit and Bullets was designed with realism in mind, although I don’t know how realistic any RPG can ever be. The Characters are heroic but not super human. They are competent but not incapable of error and failure. In fact the Characters are rather more vulnerable as compared with other well known role playing games, and can suffer debilitating wounds that take time to heal. However, if you want to play a more Cinematic or Weird West game there are optional rules to be found in the Appendix area at the end of this booklet that hopefully will provide you with what you are looking for.

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.
