#1 With a Bullet Point: 6 Anachronistic Armors

Sometimes rules supplements read like the world-setting bible of frustrated novelists. While solid world- building is a useful skill, you don’t always need four paragraphs of flavor text to tell you swords are cool, magic is power, shadows are scary, and orcs are savage. Sometimes a GM doesn’t have time to slog through a page of history for every magic weapon. Sometimes all that’s needed are a few cool ideas, with just enough information to use them in a game. Sometimes, all you need are bullet points.

#1 With A Bullet Point is a line of very short, cheap PDFs each of which gives the bare bones of a set of related options. It may be five spells, six feats, eight magic weapon special abilities, or any other short set of related rules we can cram into about a page. Short and simple, these PDFs are for GMs and players who know how to integrate new ideas into their campaigns without any hand-holding, and just need fresh ideas and the rules to support them. No in-character fiction setting the game world. No charts and tables. No sidebars of explanations and optional rules. Just one sentence of explanation for the High Concept of the PDF, then bullet points.

High Concept: Examples of anachronistic “modern” armor for use in fantasy games where characters (or at least equipment) from different eras may end up in the bazaars of magic markets, or fantasy adventures may end up, at least briefly, in modern settings.

The six armor types included are:

  • Ballistic Vest: This is a form of protective covering made from advanced fabrics which are woven, knit, or spun together to form a bullet-resistant protection.
  • Ballistic Vest, Tactical: This is a more covering version of the ballistic vest, with thicker protection over vital areas and coverings for the lower abdomen and shoulders.
  • Ballistic Armor, Reinforced: Reinforced ballistic armor covers a larger area of the body and includes a layer of chainmail, ceramic trauma plates, or similar material to improve its protection against non-ballistic attacks.
  • Ceramic Armor: Ceramic armor is a form of ballistic armor that has been augmented with overlapping strong, lightweight ceramic plates that can decrease over time.
  • Riot Shield: This is a clear plastic shield designed to protect against rocks and similar weapons of opportunity.
  • Tactical Shield: The tactical shield is a large, heavy steel shield with a plastic, ceramic, or ballistic cloth backing designed to stop even heavy weapons fire.

All right, by now you know the drill - 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, this time going for 6 anachronistic armors! We kick off with two types of ballistic vests and from the get-go, both feel not only different, but actually use [...]

A lot of gamers forget (or quite often never knew in the first place) that the dividing line between fantasy and science fiction used to be far more permeable than it’s generally considered to be today. Indeed, high-tech-versus-magic remains a sub-ge [...]

If you intend to mess up your timelines good and proper, so that either fantasy characters find themselves in the present day (either 'real world' or the future self of their own campaign setting brought forward in time) or a few modern people somehow [...]

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.
