Enter the World of Thrilling Pulp Action with this ENnie Award-nominated roleplaying game!

UPDATED: version 2.1 (matches the second printing)

The Dangers and Excitement of Magic, Martial Arts, Hypnotism, Gadgets, and Two-Fisted Duels await...

Inspired by the pulp fiction of the 30s and 40s, Two-Fisted Tales lets you recreate the action and adventure of the genre. Play a hero or heroine--men and women of unusual talents and unusual ambitions, driven to make the world a better place. While they may come from wildly different backgrounds (like cowboys, cat burglars, wealthy playboys, and Tibetan mystics), every one of them observes a private code of honor. Each, willing to risk his or her own life to see that justice is done in the end...


  • Quick Character Creation
    Customizable templates let you create a wide-range of pulp (and noir) icons, with abilities scalable from inept to super-human.

  • Pulp Schticks
    Schticks let characters accomplish tasks and goals that are normally thought to be impossible, including martial arts, gadgetry, hypnosis, magic, and more.

  • Quick-Flying Action
    Fast-action game mechanics utilize 10-sided dice and standard playing cards to keep the two-fisted action flying.

  • Lengthy Gamemaster's Section
    Extensive information for conducting investigations, creating adventures, molding villains, and more, including random tables and ready-to-use templates for villains.

  • Introduction to the Pulps
    History of the pulps explains the origins of the genre, with suggested reading/viewing for inspiration.

  • Props Included
    A sampling of Disposable Heroes paper miniatures help bring the action to life. Want more minis? See our line of Disposable Heroes Paper Minis.

"...after getting this game and reading it, this game captured that good old 'pulpy' feel I had as a youngster and made me want to play NOW!"

"Including magic spells, there are more schticks than you can shake a stick at!"

"The Game Master's section is one of my wishes come true. Let me tell you that this is no ordinary GM section... This section is a blessing."

"It has that pulp 'high-action' & 'larger than life' feel that is a must for anything dealing with the pulp genre."

"My group and I sat down to play a session of Two-Fisted Tales this weekend. Holy wow what a great game!"

"...with the Schticks you can run anything from Dick Tracy right up to the early Golden Age superheros as a 2FT campaign... Some very good rules are also included for mystery-style investigations, scientific research, understanding weird science devices, sneaking about, and dealing with law enforcement... There's also an awesome set of tables for determining random locations for adventures or encounters in your pulp setting... ...2FT has just about everything that you could possibly want in a Pulp game. Its real, direct pulp action."

"The product has 7 chapters and an appendix and is bookmarked by chapter, topic and subtopic.... The product is extremely well-designed and edited. The artwork gives a consistent genre feel to the work and the writing was engaging and makes the whole product very easy to pick-up and start playing. 9/10"

That's probably the Spectre Press edition. I don't remember if we did free upgrades to the Revised Edition or not. Contact us at (stand by with proof of purchase: receipt or screenshot of it in your library) and we'll process a free upgrade for you.

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.
