"The Action! System is a great product. If you're anything like me, it will have you reconsidering that game you always wanted to write but never had the drive to make your own rules from scratch. I give it an A!"

I got these rules years and years ago it seems and they've always been a favorite with me. The mechanics are very simple and easy to use. There's also a quick-start rules set for jumping right in that uses only three attributes (I think) and seems very [...]

It was a shame to see this system and this company go belly-up. Action! (Mustn't forget the exclamation point!) was to the Hero Games rules (nee Champions rules) as Champions was to Superhero: 2044. That is to say, a huge leap forward, and quicker to [...]

I have been a big fan of GRG enjoying both Sengoku and San Angelo immensely, so I may be a bit biased. The system is easy and quick to learn, especially those coming from the HERO/Fuzion end of the spectrum. This is simply a solid system that I do [...]

Nice product for the price but not a lot of extras. LIKED: Uses six-sided dice, "familiar" feel, low cost. DISLIKED: Uses Metric System instead of standard measurement (feet, inches, etc.), no magic system, no Besti [...]

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.
