Larger Than Life: Directors Cut

Watermarked PDF

Hard Boiled or Scrambled?

It’s a game about the Pulps. That means Lost Worlds, intrepid Archaeologists, Cliffhangers, and more. The setting may be exotic, the villains particularly villainous, but in truth, it’s all about the Story. Whether it’s finding treasure, saving someone, or thwarting the villain, it all boils down to the Story.

Larger Than Life – Directors Cut, can be likened to an action movie where your Hero moves from Scene to Scene trying to succeed in his adventure. What needs to be done? How do you do it? Who’s in peril? Who’s behind all this? All these things and more are generated for you by the easy to use game mechanics. Inside Larger Than Life – Director’s Cut you’ll find:

·    A variety of characters for you to play with and against. Stars, Co-Stars, Love Interests, Femme Fatales, and of course, the villains – we call them the Big Bads.

·    Over 35 Attributes that you can mix and match to make your characters unique.  

·    A system that allows your characters to increase in skills and abilities when they succeed, but force them into “retirement” when they fail.

·    An easy to use mechanic that will generate and solve Clues, during each Story, based on your characters abilities. Solve the Clues and you make it to the Final Scene.

·    Nine different villains to fight, from Mob Bosses to Cavemen, and everything in between.   

·    Four different Locales to adventure in. From the back alleys of a large Metropolis, to the villages in a Lost World, your Hero can travel from place to place, all generated by the game mechanics.

·    Over fifty Professions to create Victims, Suspects, and People of Interest and enrich your Story.

·    Mechanics that generate hundreds of possible adventurers, with no two ever being alike.

·    All this and more.

“One!” M’tawbe could feel the axe coming loose.

“Two!” Dario measured the distance to his gun and looked at Gimez.

“Three!” Gimez took aim and …

Will our hard boiled Hero end up scrambled in the cave? Will Gimez really shoot? Can M’tawbe free his axe in time? And what about Lil? All these questions and more will be answered in the next Scene of …

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.
