Armed For Adventure

The mid-19th through early 20th centuries were the time of rough-and-tumble Wild West gunslingers and gentlemanly Victorian adventurers alike, an age when death was just a bullet away whether you found yourself in a sooty industrial metropolis or the wilds of the Great White Hunter. With so many people living and dying by the gun, gunsmiths were spurred to revolutionize the art of killing and develop the innovations that made the Great War the bloody spectacle it was. GURPS High-Tech: Adventure Guns brings heroes of this period everything they need to shoot their way out of trouble:

  • Both iconic and unusual firearms from the mid-1800s through early 1900s -- revolvers, semiautomatic pistols, shotguns, rifles, machine guns, and even a few cannon -- complete with their accessories and variants.
  • All the associated gear: ammo, cartridge belts, fast-draw rigs, and hand grenades that don't rely on a fizzing fuse.
  • Rules unique to period designs, covering both defects and innovations . . . which were often one and the same!
  • Support for the crazy stuff that adventurers get up to, like customizing weapons, improvising ammo, rigging traps, and even mounting TL5-6 cannon and machine guns on steampunk spacecraft.
  • Bits and pieces needed to get into costume: the history and description of each weapon, a glossary of slang, guidelines for converting costs to period currency, and notes on firearms legality.

GURPS High-Tech: Adventure Guns takes a magnifying glass to one of the most interesting eras covered by GURPS High-Tech and reveals details that will have your TL5-6 heroes shooting up the scenery in style.

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.
