Average Joes


Average Joes is a combination source book and game module for the Terror Network Role-Playing Game that presents a different way to play the original game. Instead of playing well-trained government operatives that combat terrorist threats both at home and abroad, you are a normal person, ready to take up arms and defend your home from those that wish to destroy it. 

Unlike the typical Terror Network game, the Average Joe PCs are not as “well connected” as the government agents in Terror Network. They have access to fewer resources, and often find themselves at a disadvantage against the terrorist threats that they face. These disadvantages could quickly lead to a PC's demise. It takes great cunning and skill on the part of the player to use the minimal amount of resources available to his character to stay alive and succeed. 

But Average Joes don't need fancy badges or sophisticated firearms to take out the bad guys. Like Rocky Balboa and Cool Hand Luke they have a little something called heart. And while a freshly loaded 44 Magnum would be handy (possibly essential) against a group of crazed eco-terrorists, these colors don't run baby. Sure the enemy is well funded, organized and armed, but they didn't count on Average Joes banding together to create an unstoppable force that can overpower even the strongest terrorist threat. 

Included in this book is a chapter dedicated to discussing the changes in character creation that take place in the Average Joes setting and the psychological differences between an Aver- age Joes PC and a typical government agent, a short chapter on how to create scenarios for Average Joe characters, and an example adventure, Attack at the Bellpoint Mall, that challenges newly created Average Joe PCs, and gives the GM an example to go by when creating more scenarios for his players.

WHAT WORKS: A great idea for Terror Network, putting normal schmoes up against the terrorists...and Bedrock Games should be commended again, for showing that terrorism comes in multiple forms. As usual, the adventure is well done, setting up a situation [...]

Original electronic
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.
