Welcome to the Past!

GURPS Low-Tech covers the basic tools used by historical adventurers from the Stone Age to the Age of Sail -- and still used by modern survivalists and post-apocalypse survivors when the high-tech toys fail.

Weapons and armor from antlers and rawhide to warhammers and heavy mail; adventure and travel gear from simple stone knives to early submarines; everyday items and tools of every trade. Low-Tech starts with the basics that suit any setting . . . and adds lots of culturally specialized inventions to support your campaign's particular flavor. For game masters, the discussions of past technologies -- based on up-to-date historical and archaeological research -- will be valuable no matter what system is used. For GURPS players, this book also covers the skills and traits that let adventurers make the best use of their equipment.

Whether the heroes are cavemen taking their first steps toward civilization, pirates on the Seven Seas, or anything in between, GURPS Low-Tech has the technology they need!

GURPS Low-Tech replaces GURPS Low-Tech for Third Edition, the TL4 parts of GURPS High-Tech for Third Edition, and the rules for equipment from many historical sourcebooks for Third Edition, from the TL0 tools in GURPS Dinosaurs to to the TL4 gear in GURPS Swashbucklers.

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.
