Description:

”Abortion is not our “golden calf”…. We do not worship or idolize choice. We’re quite well-rounded in our activism….The right and access to reproductive options, including abortion, are among the several rights necessary for women to be able to fully participate in society. It is not the only right, but it is a fundamental right for full participation.”
-Carolyn Marie Fugit, www.roederwatch.com. January 16, 2010

The clinic creation system here allows players to simulate the day to day operations of an embattled abortion clinic in the war-torn future of 2107 CE. It allows characters playing Neo-Witch Midwives and Covenguards a chance at a different kind of heroism: away from the battlefields and black ops of most cyberpunk roleplaying games but no less dangerous, no less necessary and no less courageous.

This system abstracts the running of a clinic down to a few die rolls. The abortion clinic is treated as a character in its own right- the clinic has a set of statistics, which influence the results of special skill checks made to operate the clinic and meet the challenges, both moral and military, posed by the 22nd century’s viscous and fanatical Lifer Nation.


Frontlines of Choice was originally conceived as an adjunct (or plug-in) system for D20 Modern, and it still works well as such. The gamemaster can use the Frontlines system to generate plot points for a clinic the players have an emotional stake in. Depending on how interested the players seem in the plot hook offered by the weekly event roll, the game master can either roleplay the challenge out using the full D20 Modern rules, or just abstract it down to a few checks. Also, clinic events can be played out in the background- using the Frontlines system, the game master can easily track the ongoing story of one or even dozens of Choicer clinics. This system can generate plot hooks, or it can generate headlines, or crises for the heroes to solve after the fact- after the staff of one of these clinics fails a check, only then do the player characters become involved. The choice is yours.


In addition, Frontlines of Choice is a completely stand alone quick-play resource management game. Frontlines gives gamers a different way to play out the struggles described in the Otherverse America core rulebook. Faster, more focused on problem solving and community than combat, Frontlines offers a different view of the Abortion War, one that focuses on the physicians caught in the crossfire, not the superheroes flying overhead….

So here's a puzzle for an RPG supplement reviewer. How do you go about talking about a game supplement that's so far out there that there's nothing really to compare it to? Gonna do my best with this one, in part because it's such lunacy that it really [...]

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.
