Even if you have no need for another game system (and to be honest, I've only glanced at the rules stuff here), if you're running any pulp game at all, there are over 200 pages of system- and setting-agnostic material to make it worth the price: a thorough and engaging discussion of the pulp genre, lots of historical background (including a historical "who's who"), and, most useful to me so far, a detailed, month-by-month timeline of the 20s and 30s organized into convenient categories.

I've got several different pulp games, and this has by far the most thorough source material.

Huge, incredibly thorough treatment of how to run a Pulp era game using the 5th Edition Hero System rules (which need to be purchased seperately). Guns, timelines, custom skills, tons of good advice to GM's and inspirational art.

If you are interested in pulp era gaming, pick this up. Even if you don't play the Hero System (which I don't), pick this up. It is a top-notch resource for pulp era gaming; one which you shouldn't be without.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

This is an excellent source book. There is an indepth look at the whole pulp genre including the history and evolution of Pulp magazines. It includes an exhaustive history and details on almost every country/type of pulp adventure you may wish to run. I don't use the Hero system myself but to covert this to other systems is easy. There are a great many 'stereotype' heroes and villains in here and plenty of ideas on how to customise them. Whether you play dark and gritty or Hollywood Adventure style games this book is well worth buying.

I have used it to develop my own set of Miniatures Rules. Truly a fabulous source of information.


LIKED: In depth history of Pulp Genre and excellent character development.

DISLIKED: It's very big!

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied
