Game Masters Collection Volume One: the Twentieth Century

The Game Masters Collection is a collection of unique sound effects, ideally suited for all genre RPG and LARP games. These sound effects were originally released as four compact discs: The Twentieth Century, Monsters, Fantasy, and Strange Places.

Volune One is a 40-track collection of places and things common between 1901 and 2000. Perfect for all modern- day RPG and LARP games, this volume contains realistic-sounding environments for your players to inhabit, as well as some general situations players may encounter. Now you can enhance the role playing experience by adding the element of sound.

Does the party have a shoot-out at the train station? Are they meeting that NPC at the airport? Will they be exploring that abandoned ship? How about letting the players hear the crack of a gun when they're being shot at. Is your world ending? Let the Emergency Broadcast Message calmly and clearly inform the players that the end is nigh.

"Are you one of those DMs who can mimic a fabulous array of voices and make convincing sound effects during the game? Me, neither. For those of us with a limited vocal range, Toxic Bag Productions has come to the rescue with a series of sound effects for your roleplaying campaign."
--Dragon #284

"Every hero needs theme music, and now even the lowliest dungeon-crawler can have some...The discs feed the imagination by providing the auditory equivalent of flavor text, those long passages of description found in almost every Dungeons & Dragons module. Using sounds to spruce up an otherwise mundane gaming experience is nothing new--more than a few gamers have diced their way to greatness while listening to the Conan the Barbarian or Star Wars soundtracks. The Game Masters Collection offers more than that, though, providing GMs with just the right sound for just the right moment.
The tracks are expertly recorded, and if they occasionally sound like B-movie clips, it's because they're supposed to...the tracks are crisp, clear and sound like what they're supposed to sound like.
Diehard game masters - the kind who have painted miniatures for every adventure and spend considerable time assembling props for their games - are going to love this collection." --Kenneth Newquist,


"The compact discs from Toxic Bag are quality products that deliver what they advertise...these CDs are likely to please role-playing gamers who are looking for one more way to increase the immersion in their gaming experience."

The original provider of Sound Effects for Role Playing, Toxic Bag brings over 20 years of sound effects experience directly to your gaming table. We currently offer more than 200 unique sounds for all genres of RPG!

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.
