THE PULP COMPANION: Adds additional content to the Pulp Adventure role-playing game. Inside this exciting new book you will find new advantages, archetypes, skills and mysterious powers. For the Game Master there will be rules for adjudicating skills, seductions and the random generation of Femme Fatales. For those of you who wish to conduct more epic combats, there will be a set of squad level combat rules for use during times of war or when the characters face overwhelming odds. Also included is an action packed set of tables to randomly generate scenario seeds.

"Terror in Tibet" is a randomly generated scenario for Pulp Adventure set in the Tibetan rebellion of 1906. The characters face marauding bandits, savage creatures and warrior monks as they escort a scientist into the mountainous region of Tibet to perform "experiments".

(Unlocked) "The Search for the Last Yeti" A rollicking trek into China and the mountainous land of Tibet. The characters will be in search of the legendary Yeti which is said to dwell at the top of the world. Unfortunately, while the heroes seek to capture a live specimen, their enemies seek to kill it!

I plan to make the Pulp Companion a fairly complete book of additional content for the Pulp Adventure game but I have designed the following stretch goals in case we reach certain levels of funding. To make it simple, if the goal is reached, everyone who pledges at Noir level ($25) or higher will receive the stretch rewards listed below.

(Unlocked) If we reach $2,000+ I will add an extra scenario in the Pulp Companion for a grand total of two scenarios.

(Unlocked) If we reach $3,000+ I will add another two archetypes to the Pulp Companion and Player and Game Master reference charts inside the front and back covers. 

If we reach $5,000+ I will add an additional scenario to the Pulp Companion and include a pad of character sheets.

If we reach $5,001+ I will reward every pledge who receives a physical product with a piece of original art drawn from the archetypes from any book. That's right, I will rip the original drawing out of my sketchbook and sign it for you.
Furthermore, if anyone buys the $1,000 level, I will give them the original cover art for the Pulp Companion, signed and custom framed!

The order of choice for the sketches will be randomly drawn.

Risks and challenges

I have ten years of experience in desktop publishing and my team of special assistants are by my side to help with the process of editing and play-testing. There are no perilous dangers involved with this project as this will be my sixth product in print and so far there have been no delays or major blunders.
You may rest assured that upon successful completion of the campaign that the book will be printed and the rewards shipped out as fast as possible short of delivering them by Jet Pack.
