Description:
From the exotic, mysterious East they come to menace western civilization, to challenge all that decent, God-fearing men hold virtuous. With hatchet and knife, pistol and poison, they strike from the shadows. These are the Perils of the Orient, the sinister villains who swarmed across the pages of pulp magazines from the very beginning in the late 1800s to the very end in the 1950s.

Written by novelist C.L. Werner (Witch Hunter, et. al.), Pulp Villains: PERILS OF THE ORIENT is your complete guide for including these villains in your d20-based pulp campaigns. In these pages are presented some of the most common themes that were evoked in the pulps -- from Mongol warriors dreaming of a new empire to sinister Tibetan monks with terrible powers of mysticism and mesmerism; from the Tongs of Chinatown to the nefarious machinations of the sinister Oriental Mastermind.

This supplement contains details of the most common archetypes of the genre, with fully-statted generic NPC examples of each, ready to use. An armory of exotic oriental weapons is included, for use against (or indeed, by) your pulp heroes. Horrific creatures appear as well....including the dreaded Mongolian Death Worm!

At their worst, pulp tales of oriental peril preyed upon and exploited the fears and ignorance of its audience, playing upon racial stereotypes of the time as a way of enhancing the tale's own impact. Other tales, however treated their subjects with a great deal more care and dignity, although today these stories are almost universally lumped together with their cruder imitators.

Pulp Villains: PERILS OF THE ORIENT attempts to present the genre in all of its excess, but at the same time with the knowledge that the characters presented here are not representative of their entire culture, any more than a murderous Thugee is indicative of India's vast population or a jack-booted Nazi represents the entire German ethnic group. A game centered around the themes of heroics and adventure will, by definition, focus upon the unusual and the extraordinary - and you will find Pulp Villains: PERILS OF THE ORIENT to be both.

Overall, I rather liked this one. While I see the justice of some of the other reviewers' critiques, it seems to me that they were expecting an awful lot from a 40+ page supplement. It seems clear from the context of the book, that while the Oriental [...]

Excellent treatment of the subject matter, well up to Adamant's usual high standard. Perils of the Orient is a primer on utilizing the "Yellow Menace" in your pulp games, and it serves that purpose well. The product opens with long piece of flavor text, [...]

Useful information but sparse. If you already have a handle on the Pulp era treatment of Asian crime syndicates then this supplement will have little useful information for you. I was able to acquire more information freely through internet searches in [...]

I wanted to like it. Let?s have a look by sections? First of all ? the product starts off with ten pages of flavor text. A bit excessive in my opinion. Anyone buying this product probably has a good handle on just what this supplement is all about, [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
