One way to make a modern, sci-fi, or post-apocalyptic game your own is with artifacts. A game master could expand the types of items a party might find, imagining what technology would be available generations in the future, where even potentially mundane objects might enter the realms of the fantastic. 

This publication delves into four very different kinds of technology. Cloaks include several forms of high-technology outerwear, including capes and ponchos. Virtual Matter Projectors explore the possibility that the ancients could make items that existed only while the devices used to create their component particles was on. Anti-Technology Weapons were designed to cope with the need to prevent machines from running amok. Formulae, chemistry’s third iteration, use the detritus of a dead world and the pollution of superscience found in soil, water, and flesh to constitute something bordering on magic. 

Contents of this publication are stat’ed for a “Basic” version of the OGL/d20 system and is compatible with any games that use it, especially ones like the Mutant Future retroclone of Gamma World, and easily adaptable for many others.

We can! That usually happens by default but appears not to have this time, so we manually set up a preview.

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.
