Researchers, scientists, and engineers have worked for millennia trying to turn the possible into the practical. But for every successful innovation, thousands have remained tantalizingly out of reach, lurking just a hair's breadth from the feasible . . . just an aching angstrom beyond the achievable . . . just beyond the edge of reality.

GURPS Fantasy-Tech 1: The Edge of Reality covers dozens of innovations that were not part of our own developmental timeline, but could have been. Whether mythical maybes, developmental dead ends, or legendary lore, these innovations and inventions push the envelope of the possible. And these unreal technologies include relevant GURPS stats, to make a real difference to your game worlds. Contained herein are:

  • New and strange weapons, including the reflective heat ray, the anti-ship claw, and the 11-barrel Leonardo battery.
  • Combination weapons. Can't decide between a gun and a sword? Consider a gun-sword!
  • A new type of armament: "ethnic cool" weaponry. If the tales are true, beware facing the horse-killing macuahuitl, the Welsh longbow, or the legendary katana!
  • A dozen types of not-quite-possible transport, including tanks, land-sailing vessels, and submarines.
  • Six new kinds of mythical and near-possible armor. Learn the legends surrounding treated linen armor, gothic plate, and studded armor.
  • Alternate scientific achievements, such as unusual sources of power, odd disciplines and pseudosciences, and unusual legendary materials (including the "truth" behind transparent aluminum!).
  • Four technologies that could have been introduced earlier, but for some reason weren't. Sure, you can change the world with gunpowder, but you can do at least as much with germ therapy . . .

Since the dawn of time, dreamers and inventors have dared to ask, "What if?" With Fantasy-Tech 1: The Edge of Reality, you can know the answer.

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.
