Comes with the PDF of Wild Talents Essential Edition, the complete rules, free.

Grim War is a Wild Talents roleplaying game sourcebook of superpowered mutants, nefarious sorcerers, and the ordinary men and women trying to control them all.

<o:p>Written by Wild Talents co-authors Greg Stolze and Kenneth Hite, and illustrated by Todd Shearer, Grim War introduces a fascinating and weird new system of spirit-summoning magic. Sorcerous characters can wield fantastic power—if they are willing to pay the price. Grim War details dozens of bizarre and sometimes terrifying spirits and the harrowing spells required to treat with them.</o:p>

Grim War brings the "company rules" of Greg Stolze's Reign to the superpowered action of Wild Talents (you need both Reign and Wild Talents to use the Company rules), allowing players to join, influence or oppose a dozen fully-detailed sorcerous cabals and mutant factions. Such as . . .

The Xolotl Cartel, which has found smuggling far more lucrative than secret ceremonies in hidden temples, and magic far more profitable than any drug.

People for Religious Freedom, a well-meaning political action group in way over its head.

Direktiva Nul, once an agency for Soviet super spies, now the first line of defense against threats from the Otherworld.

Squadron A1, the U.S. Army's famous superteam, comprised only of the most upright superheroes America has to offier. Honest. Would the American government lie to you?

Ákrab-i-allah. Citizens Against Reductionist Genetic Obsessions (CARGO). Next Iteration. The Piccione Family. Projekt Ethnologisches Literaturarchiv-Sonderabteillung. The Rational Occult Study Crossdisciplinary Research Organization (ROSCRO). The School of the American Future. The Way.

Each faction has its own goals, its own secrets, and its own agenda for the player characters.

An extensive chapter on the background of this fascinating world offers guidelines for playing in any point in the 20th and 21st centuries, so the players themselves can define the shape and course of the Grim War.

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.
