The second of two non-Darwin's World advanced classes.

When civilization died, so did the concept of equality and of the rule of law. In the cities and tech centers, police and military survivors attempted to piece society back together, but other places were not so lucky. Out in the wilderness, in radioactive, diseased or polluted deathzones, small bands of scavengers and nomads followed the rule of the gun, the fist. Life in the wastelands was cruelly Darwinist. The weak died, and the strong survived and ruled.

Slave-taking became one of the vital industries in the post-apocalyptic world. Without machines to do the work, muscle power became a prime commodity. City dwellers purchased human and mutant slaves en masse, for everything from mining and agriculture, to military service or sexual slavery. Other slaves, the less fortunate ones, were destined for gladiator rings or vivisection in an organ harvesting clinic. Raiders and pirates could sell the survivors of their guerrilla strikes for a tidy profit; the city dwellers would gladly line up for a chance to buy slaves from the unwashed outsiders, even if they normally would never open their city’s gates to the raiders. In time, urban survivors formed their own slaving companies, directly competing with less organized scavenger bands.

The logistics of slave taking and hostage exchange quickly became codified. Slavers could always find a ready buyer for their wares, and could always trade their captives for a tidy profit in trade goods.

The flesh trade is one of the most pivotal aspects of making any game grim-n-gritty. It immediately showcases that the campaign isn’t going to duck the uglier issues, and puts a more mature, more dark spin on things. After all, killing monsters and [...]

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.
