120 Modern Pocket Contents

Watermarked PDF

Making a game seem alive and 'real' is a challenge all gamemasters face, and NPCs can be the hardest element to get right. If the players ever ask in-game what an NPC has in their pockets (or handbag or purse), coming up with something off the top of your head can be a real chore.

120 Modern Pocket Contents offers a quick list for the busy gamemaster to pull out as needed. Refer to the list and pick the items you think the NPC would have, or roll some dice and use the result(s) you get. A few of these items could be hooks to different adventures, or they could simply be red herrings. Several example entries:

11. Cat Collar
46: Hotel Soap
110: Username & Password (on a Post-it Note)

While the list is targeted at gamemasters running a modern or near-future game, it could work equally well in a sci-fi game.

Well, what can be said about a one-page document? It's short and to the point. 120 Modern Pocket Contents is exactly what it says on the wrapper. It's a bunch of generic items to allow a GM to randomly figure out what is in the pockets of the pe [...]

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.
