Dead Reckoning

Watermarked PDF

fear is only the beginning...

The quiet mining town of Denney Springs was a peaceful place...until the accident. Unknown to the citizens of this sleepy town, an "incident" occurred in nearby Denver, which resulted in the poisoning of the city's water system. The culprit this crime was a secret chemical the E.P.A. was experimenting with. The resulting contamination was widespread, affecting thousands of residents. Infected individuals were mutated into monstrous, killing machines. Rumors were rampant that even corpses in the city morgues were being re-animated. These necrotic creatures soon swarmed over the entire city. Eventually oozing out from the Denver city limits, the "Day of Reckoning" was upon the oblivious citizens on Denney Springs. But the townsfolk quickly organized, gathered their resolve and fought back. What else could they do?

Swarms of fleeing refugees sought shelter in the mountains. Distress calls summoned aid from the National Guard and hope began to replace despair. All they had to do was get to the refugee camp near Wagon Gap. No problem...right?

Dead Reckoning is a light, fast-playing zombie-themed game that features a new, streamlined game system which allows both players to be constantly involved in the game play. It provides challenging decision making and yet easily resolved all combat with the simple drawing of cards. There are no complicated combat results tables, no dice rolling, no factor counting, no lists of modifiers and almost no math calculations. This game is designed to be enjoyed by both grognards and zombie fans alike.

  • 1 - Rule book, detailing all the ways and means to simulate this potential zombie apocalypse

Original electronic
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.
