Dick Garrison Rapid Launch is a stripped down but fully functioning version of our forthcoming The Amazing Interplanetary Adventures of Dick Garrison, Pulp SF wargames rules for 28mm scale miniatures.

Dick Garrison is inspired by the pulp TV serials of the 1930's and has an emphasis on characters and derring-do. Using an oppossed dice roll system there is no daring act you cannot recreate on the tabletop as good fights evil to save the Earth from the diabolical Khang the Compassionless.

Rapid Launch contains:

Introduction: Khanopia: Empire of Misery, The League of Nations
Doughty Heroes & Sinister Villains: Roles, Statistics, Pros & Cons, Equipment, Squads, Leaders
To Action: Turn Sequence, Morale, Plot Twists
A Desperate Race: Terrain, Obstacles, Movement Types
The Battle Joined: Ranged Combat, Close Combat, Mental Combat
A Bold Attempt: Challenges, Types of Challenges
Some Flimsy Scripts: Perfidy in the Palace, Treachery, A Fate Worse Than Death
A Cast of Dozens: Character Biographies, Character Record Sheets, Heroes of the Space Navy, Villains of Khanopia

This will allow you to understand the basics of the game using your Wargame Supply Dump Dick Garrison miniatures.

Purchasers of Dick Garrison Rapid Launch will be able to redeem the cost of the purchase price against the cost of The Amazing Interplanetary Adventures of Dick Garrison when it is released later this year.

A print friendly version of the rules is included along with the rulebook PDF.

Format

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.
