San Francisco: The Ruins by the Bay



Once one of the largest sprawls on the West coast, San Francisco was ravaged by war and natural disaster. Now, some twenty years after a major earthquake leveled the city, San Francisco is home to a wide range of hybrids and humans who eke out a meager existence in this harsh, post-apocalyptic ruin.

Take care though, traveler, because as much as the people of San Francisco  can’t stand each other, they hate outsiders even more. These cats’ll gladly gut you and leave ya naked and bleeding out on the broken concrete if you so much as look at them the wrong way, tomo. So, if you stumble into the wrong zone or forget to pack extra ammo when scavenging in the ruins, well...

Don’t say you weren’t warned omae.

San Francisco: There’s no place like it.


  • A detailed look at the ruins of San Francisco and its inhabitants.
  • New Edges and Occupations
  • New gear
  • More City Trappings
  • Detailed Salvage Rules
  • Plot Hooks
  • A host of NPCs, ready to use in your game!

This is an expansion for Savage Worlds Interface Zero, and not a stand-alone setting.

WHAT WORKS: Once again, Gun Metal Games packs a lot of info into a small book, with some nice crunch (I like both Hybrid options, as well as the expanded City Trappings and the Salvaging rules). The art is lovely, probably my favorite art yet in the IZ [...]

Disclaimer: Provided by GunMetal Games for review purposes. First Glance: With bright red background and heavy borders, this appears to be a bit cluttered at first. The graphics are top notch for a small company. Better than the art for many maj [...]

This is another wonderful book from Gunmetal Games. I love the layout of the book with the Net conversations on the side showing what characters from the world think of the text. The art work really inspires me with character ideas to compliment the de [...]

I've started reading the book and I can not help but be impressed. The setting pays tribute to the Cyberpunk genre quite well. The artwork is superb, and the writing is very good...though I admit I'm biased. All in all, it's a beautiful book. I'm surpr [...]

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.
