Cheat The Guillotine

"We seek him here, we seek him there
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in Heaven? Is he in Hell?
That demmed elusive Pimpernel!"

So runs the verse about the darling of Regency London . . . the Scarlet Pimpernel, elusive rescuer of the victims of the French Revolution. The streets in Paris are awash in blood as Robespierre orders hundred to the guillotine, yet this unknown Englishman and his brave band continue to spirit the innocent to safety in England.

Who is this Scarlet Pimpernel? Why does he risk life and honor in a land not his own? And who is brave enough to forsake the Prince Regent's glittering court to join the Pimpernel under the very shadow of Madame la Guillotine?

Scarlet Pimpernel is set in France during the darkest days of the Reign of Terror. Join the Pimpernel and his gallant crew as they outwit the Committee of Public Safety and its agent Chauvelin again and again. Aristocrats, clergy, shopgirls, even the Dauphin himself - no one is beyond the Pimpernel's aid.

This book contains a complete chronology of the French Revolution, game statistics for the Pimpernel and his major lieutenants, maps of Paris and France in the 1790s, and four complete adventures, plus sidebars on everything from fashion to politics . . . everything you need for a swashbuckling campaign in the days when France turned upside-down.

This book is designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set Third Edition, but can be used as a sourcebook for any roleplaying game. GURPS Swashbucklers is highly recommended, but not required.

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

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.
