DUST Adventures RPG is a rules-light exciting roleplaying game set in Paolo Parente's DUST Universe and inspired by the epic tales arising from the DUST Tactics miniatures game.

From the mind of Paolo Parente comes the world of Dust. Another Earth. A different 1947. The Second World War has raged for nearly a decade and its grip has spread to every continent on the planet. War has advanced swiftly and strangely in the Dust universe through the application of Alien VK technology a limitless source of energy in its simplest form, and an unthinkable weapon in the wrong hands. Tanks have evolved into powerful combat walkers and rocket troops take to the skies. The latest laser cannons, phasers, and Tesla weapons rule the battlefield.

The core book features:

- Lots of never-before-seen information on the DUST universe - 216 pages of adventure!

- Full roleplaying rules using the DUST dice (or just six-sided dice) including simple character generation for classic archetypes such as soldiers, adventurers and scientists

- Guidance on how to run exciting roleplaying adventures in the DUST universe

- Details of new and existing organisations that the players can be working for or facing in the field

- How to use vehicles and walkers in your games

- Tons of plot seeds and much more

- Introductory Adventure, the prequel to Operation Apocalypse!

Use any of your DUST miniatures in the roleplaying game

I didn't buy it here, but I Loved this book. The adventure mode is pulp enough to be fun, the Weird World War background is neat (although it needs to be expanded in some more books later) and you can play with the DUST miniature range which looks great. Building a PC is easy and you can go anywhere between the realistic character to the super-hero that would make rocketeer blush.

I can't post my review here as I purchased the hard book on Amazon. So I will just add my review here:

A unique, gritty, pulp adventure - "potentially" soiled (read on) by poor editing, laziness and lack of support. If you dont want to read the entire review just skip to the last paragraph for the gist of it all.

I bought this 200 some odd page book from reading a few sources about it. I used to play the old DUST board-game awhile back and was excited to see they made this into a tabletop rpg. When I saw it, I purchased it immediately.

I want to start off by saying that this is one of the most horridly edited books I've seen in a pen and paper game.. It totes itself as rules light, but attempts to go in deep by adding customization for technician/builder type classes to make your own items but they are executed poorly. This book WILL drive you into house rules because it flat out doesn't explain XXX. Also, if you think you're going to get support for the game,...See more

I have played and mastered RPGs sine 1979 and this is one of the best I've ever seen. Based on the Dust Tactics wargame by Paolo Parents. The background is intense and very detailed. If you already play Tactics or Warfare, the background info detailed here will give you a better understanding of the world. The mechanics are very similar to those used for tactics and while simple allow for detailed and complex characters. You can basically create any character you want with a little creativity.

Picture, the year is 1947. World War II still drags on. Hitler us dead, the Nazis are out of power, but the axis fights on. Not only have they recaptured list ground but England us theirs in all but spirit. The Soviet Union has split from the alliance and are enemies in their own right, now allied with China. Your characters are tasked with special missions behind enemy lines, which is virtually everywhere, in an attempt to thwart the plans of those who would control the world. Very pulpy deisal punky kind...See more

Hi there we've not had any other issues reported, usually this happens when there is a problem with the download. I'd try downloading again or from a different browser that often fixes it. If you still have a problem let us know

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.
