Warning:

Contained in this slender volume are Horrors so great that Unmarried Women, or those in Delicate Condition, should read with Great Caution -- and Protective Eye Wear, if available.

It is an Age of Revolution; the world has been cruelly purged . . . in fire, and blood, and steam. From the past, untold horrors wait to clutch at men's souls.

It is an Age of Invention; even the Laws of Nature must fall before the power of Progress! Sinister villains plot to use their newfound inventions against society, nature, and even God Himself!

It is an Age of Steam; the most brilliant minds of the age experiment with novel, wondrous ideas -- but is mankind ready for such power?

GURPS Screampunk presents a toolkit for incorporating Victorian steampunk into games of gothic horror:

  • A guide to gothic horror themes, locations, and plots, with suggestions that add a doom-laden atmosphere to your games.
  • The use of weird technology as a corrupting influence.
  • Real-world Victorian scientific institutions -- and the mobs that opposed them.
  • Character archetypes including the cruel guardian, the sinister servant, the ingenue, and the swarthy foreigner.
  • Adventure seeds, plot hooks, and guidance for running gothic horror scenarios.

The ominous shadows of the past loom over the present. The forces of reason man the last barricade against superstition, medieval barbarism, and ancient nightmares. Will you stand against the darkness?

(This is a digital reprint of a GURPS Third Edition product.)

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.
