D20 Decade: The 1980s is a sourcebook designed to immerse players and gamemasters (particularly those gamers who grew up during the 1990s) into the culture and color of 1980s <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:place></st1:country-region>. GMs will find a wealth of cultural and historical details about the 80s, allowing them to breathe some life into a campaign set during the recent past. D20 Decade is genre neutral, and provides information which can be used in any campaign set between January 1, 1980 and December 31, 1989.

<o:p></o:p>It doesn't matter if the players are battling leather jacketed zombies, going toe to toe with the USSR’s super-soldiers, rampaging through time and space, planning a bank heist, stopping assassination plots, serving in America’s most elite rapid deployment force, or running drugs in Miami… if they're doing any of that during the 1980s, this is the book for you. You'll find suggestions for importing the themes explored by 80s gaming into other genres- for example by running a classic cyberpunk campaign set in a future stuck inextricably in the 1980s<o:p></o:p>

Players will find an assortment of gear, feats, 80s flavored starting occupations, and character classes built for the 1980s. Most of the classes can be played straight, or can devolve into retro-camp, depending on how seriously the players and game group wish to take the setting. Everybody will find an assortment of cultural details, rules modifications, and new uses for old skills.

So take a trip back in time with big hair, parachute pants, communism and 80’s style adventure!

Some good to middling ideas in here, but mainly missing the point. My one major complaint is with his bibliography since there is a porn comic book. This illustrates something I have had a problem with this author in the majority of his offerings. Adul [...]

It is difficult not to compare this to Damnation Decade or Solid! in terms of capturing the feel of a decade. For starters this is for the d20 Modern RPG, which I am not even sure is still being supported by anyone. That all being said, there is a lot [...]

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.
