The Art Of War

The master warrior doesn't simply snatch up his sword and hurl himself into battle. He adapts his tools to his goals, knows his weaknesses as well as his strengths, and leads his allies to victory. Low-Tech Companion 2: Weapons and Warriors expands on the already-encyclopedic information on TL0-4 warfare in GURPS Low-Tech, adding:

  • History. A concise rundown of how fighting evolved from the days of stone axes to the era of pike, shot, and cannon.
  • Weapon and Armor Design. Rules for customizing and resizing melee weapons, shields, and armor to suit almost any purpose.
  • Equipment Damage. Battles are hard on gear. Gamers after ultimate realism can track each item's state of repair down to the last Hit Point.
  • Fortresses. A look at everything from hasty ditches to walled cities . . . along with huge cannon and giant siege towers for defeating them!
  • Transportation. Practical guidelines for getting infantry, cavalry, and naval forces from A to B.
  • Warships. Vehicle stats for early naval vessels, from penteconters to frigates.

Regardless of the scale of the fighting in your campaign, Low-Tech Companion 2: Weapons and Warriors brings you everything you need to put the violence in a broader context.

Low-Tech Companion 2: Weapons and Warriors is a supplement to GURPS Low-Tech. The information on the military history, siegecraft, and warships would be useful in any campaign that involves historically accurate warfare.

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.
