Bread or bullets?

ADD TO WISHLIST >

“I think we can make an arrangement.” Alexi motioned. One of his goons plopped a metal can on the counter. “I even offer a premium. Your four AKs are worth 1200 rounds. I’ll give you a full can of 1260.”
“No. I don’t think so.”
“I’m offering a premium,” Alexi said, “60 bullets more than your guns are worth!”
I shrugged. “Yeah, but that’s 7.62 Tokarev. Who even uses that anymore? Got some nine mill? I’ll take Parabellum or Makarov. What about some 7.62 by 39? Maybe some fifty cal?”
“Bullets are bullets my friend. Take it or leave it.”
What was there to say? It was a full can of Tokarev. Factory sealed even. But to me, it might as well have been empty. None of us could use it. I picked up my guns and left.

In the Twilight War, the fiat currencies of the old nations are useless, valuable only as collectors’ items or to the insane. Barter is far more common. The idea of bullets as currency is definitely thematically appropriate to the game, but are bullets really a good stand in for currency?

A great little supplement, you’ve actually fixed one of my core difficulties of getting into the setting. Actually feeling a bit embarrassed to not come up with this idea so hats off to you!

This is a really useful supplement.
A given ref can disagree with this or that value, but it gives a consistent starting point for that discussion. Nice work!

Hey, go game, milieu or setting survives contact with a referee intact.
And no referee's game plan survives contact with player characters at all!! :D

Is this meant to cost $999.99 or is that an error of some sort?

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.
