Strength In Numbers

From street gangs to armies, through political and religious groups, to businesses all the way up to multinational corporations, organizations feature prominently in many adventures. They can be tough to get a handle on, though. Juggling lots of people and resources can leave you feeling like "GM" stands for "General Manager," not "Game Master"!

GURPS Boardroom and Curia comes to the rescue with a simple-but-effective framework for defining organizations for use in adventures. Its stats block offers a way to write up a group in much the same way you would a city (compare GURPS City Stats), an army (see GURPS Mass Combat), or a spaceship (as in GURPS Spaceships). At a glance, you'll know just how powerful they are and how quickly they can respond, and have a concrete idea of what that means in terms of skill levels, point values, or dollars.

Boardroom and Curia also includes a full chapter on how to use these stats when the PCs work for or against an organization -- or decide to found one! Rounding it out are seven detailed examples suited to a variety of tech levels and genres: three real-world groups (the Medici bank, the Provisional IRA, and Médecins Sans Frontières), two that support existing GURPS settings (Biotech Euphrates for Transhuman Space and the Raiders of the Black Void for GURPS Cabal), the sinister Cold War conspiracy of Dr. Zynfami, and a superhero alliance (the Mid-City Defenders).

Stop being confused. Start getting organized!

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.
