4.01 is now the latest version. Change in the combat rules; a weapon adds the modifier to the Action roll even if the character does not have a specific Specialism. That sentence has been struck out. The title page and cover page have been combined making the final PDF now 18 pages. Also "leggings" in the armor list cover the groin hit location as well as the legs.

Version 4.00 is now available. The combat rules have been rewritten to further clarify how USR Sword & Sorcery handles simultaneous combat, the default method of combat for the game.

USR Sword & Sorcery is a complete game. You Do not need the Original USR rules to play.

What's different between this one, and the previous iteration (spear-wielding female with sabertooth) that was listed here?

Respects Fair Use copyright with licensed art. I don't have the rights to the works of Frazetta. Those copies with copyright protected art were made for my players in my game. It was free for download at my blog. That copy is no longer being made available by me.

Point of clarification as well, the copy you refer to was never made available here on RPGNow.com.

All that being said, have you played the game and did you Like it?

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.
