Operation Jungle Drums Redux! 2nd Edition

Watermarked PDF

Operation: Jungle Drums was one of the very first supplements published for Heavy Gear, and it has had a marked influence on the game's development. Characters that first appeared in this book have since taken on great importance in the game's storyline, from Miranda Petite and Lussian Salban to the GREL Colonel Proust and Soldier Roskiman. The original version of this book has been out of print for many years, though, and while the characters and events in the book are well-known to longtime fans, their significance may be less clear to newcomers.


The adventure is a practical introduction to both the Heavy Gear universe and the Silhouette game system. Its mix of roleplaying episodes and tactical scenarios are great for new Players and Gamemasters, and offer a small glimpse into the various political and historic forces that have shaped Terra Nova, the planet where so much of the story takes place. Such an introduction is as useful now as when the book was first released, and so we offer Operation: Jungle Drums Redux. More than just a reprint, this new edition provides expanded information on the MILICIA's Special Intervention Unit and those members who have become recurring characters. The intricacies of jungle operations are also described in this version, making the jungles of the South a more appealing backdrop for further adventures with the SIU or other units.


This book includes:

  • Background information on the Special Intervention Unit;
  • A mixed tactical and roleplaying scenario;
  • Six ready-made characters, seven major NPCs and scores of background characters;
  • Datacards for the vehicles used in the scenario.

A copy of the Heavy Gear basic rules is required to use this book.

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.
