Atomic Power, Epic Danger!

Radiation can be scary. You can't see it, smell it, or fight it by any conventional means, but it can be deadly just the same. GURPS Disasters: Meltdown and Fallout helps you bring this invisible threat to your gaming table, and gives adventurers the tools they need to deal with it. Inside this volume, you'll discover:

  • The most common types of modern nuclear reactors, plus a few theoretical ones. Learn about reactors' core functionality, fuel sources, durability, security measures, and more.
  • A primer on radiation, including sources and ways to measure it, game effects, updated Protection Factors for various materials, equipment for dealing with radioactive issues (with revised GURPS game mechanics), and a few crazy ways people have used radiation.
  • What happens during, immediately after, and long after a meltdown, both in terms of scene-setting descriptions and nitty-gritty game mechanics.
  • Perks, quirks, disadvantages, and skills that normal humans might have, plus radiation-related advantages for exotic beings. Use the provided suggestions to atomically alter people for cinematic action.
  • Ways to use nuclear power in modern, historical, magical, and futuristic campaigns, plus suggested power-plant complications, adventure seeds, and campaign ideas.
  • A bibliography of books, films, and GURPS supplements to inspire you, from factual accounts to wild speculations.

Whether you're looking for realistic dangers for near-modern adventurers, cinematic set pieces for modern-day GURPS Action heroes, or apocalyptic possibilities to kickstart a GURPS After the End campaign, Disasters: Meltdown and Fallout is an inexhaustible radioactive sourcebook!

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.
