This is a terrific product marred almost catastrophically by its un-optimized state. When a perfectly average computer takes over three minutes to process and print one page, and there is no printer-friendly version, the utility of even the greatest of products is severely hampered. Even copy-and-paste is hampered because of control codes that pop up here and there. This publisher should take note of how other publishers lay out and compress their PDFs in order to make the Thrilling Tales line just as good. On the bright side, there are bookmarks and they're well-used.
This is particularly unfortunate because the rest of this product is top-notch. The random pulp adventure generator, along with the structure of a pulp story, is worth far more than the price of admission. That kind of thing has long gone un-addressed. Pulp adventure stories are tremendously formulaic, yet pulp RPGs have completely ignored the benefits of genre formula.
Some good mook rules are included, as well as a really insightful overview of the pulp genres generally not included in RPGing. (Pulp fantasy such as D&D is of course the most popular sort of gaming, so it's not covered here.)<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: Incredibly great material. Good choice of topics, and excellent detail on those topics. The adventure generator is brilliant.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Technical faults mar this otherwise awesome product's usefulness.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
