A World Of Danger!

You're in the Ice Age, where mankind battles for survival. The weather is harsh. Gigantic beasts, and your own savage cousins, surround you on every side. You have no Uzis or bulletproof vests, no automobiles, no penicillin, not even as much as a match (or a Fire spell). You have only your wits and the weapons you can make by hand.

Can you survive?

Included in this GURPS worldbook are:

  • An overview of the Pleistocene Epoch, the dawn of mankind.
  • Detailed information on seven hominid races – Australopithecus gracilis, Australopithecus robustus, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, archaic Homo sapiens, Neanderthal man, and Cro-Magnon man.
  • Character creation and roleplaying for all races, including new advantages, disadvantages and skills.
  • A system of primitive magic – Shamanism – with its own spells.
  • A bestiary of Ice Age animals – including dinosaurs, for a "Lost World" adventure.
  • A complete adventure pitting Neanderthal tribesfolk against Cro-Magnon invaders.

Ice Age can be used in many ways, for many types of campaigns:

  • A full background for a realistic or romanticized prehistoric campaign.
  • A guide for primitive tribes in a post-holocaust campaign.
  • A sourcebook for a lost realm in a pulp or adventure campaign.
  • A "primitive" world for an outer-space adventure.
  • Or, for a change of pace, try cave man slapstick, with dinosaurs, giant bugs, big clubs, and ancient astronauts!

This book is designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set, Third Edition, but can be used as a sourcebook for any other roleplaying game system.

(This is a digital reprint of a GURPS Third Edition product.)

GURPS Ice Age is a solid little supplement that adds a wealth of interesting material for a relatively obscure period of gaming. Complete with a collection of new hominid races, equipment, natural creatures, and spells, there really is a lot of [...]

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.
