* Experience and Loot system for campaign progression. Watch new recruits become battle hardened veterans..or die somewhere in the burnt wasteland.

* Random event tables to build up the narrative.

* Simple, straight-forward rules that make it easy to set up and play a game on your own.

She was our old kitty that passed away right before the time this game was released.

I figured as much. Sorry for your loss. I have had cats pass away also and can definitely empathize with you on that subject.

We are really enjoying these rules after really enjoying Five Parsecs. My son is busy developing the trade and settlement system. I think we may and up with mash up of the two rule sets overtime .. keep it up mate!

I have plans yes, but with everything happening behind the scenes, I can't give a date just yet.

I was considering using either Five Klicks or Five Parsecs to emulate a Destiny style game. Which do you think would be more appropriate, since Destiny sort of crosses Space Opera with P.A. Or should I get both and meld them together?

Klicks has somewhat more detailed combat rules, so that may be a good starting point (and Destiny had a bit of post-collapse feel anyways). Parsecs items and loot should transfer over just fine.

An excellent rule set for solo "zone" delving.

I have posted a review over on the Post Apoc Wargames forum.

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.
