International backers (backers not in the US or the UK) need to make sure they see the additional shipping costs located below or in the pledge level. Shipping is free for those customers in the US or the UK, but due to increasing shipping costs out of the US you must add an additional $20 for the softcover and $30 for the hardcover in shipping outside of that area. Without these additional costs we will not be able to process your order.

Welcome to the age of the Pulps, where two-fisted action heroes and secret societies battle for control of the destiny of mankind!

Pulp Fantastic takes you to the past as it should have been; an era of science heroes, masked avengers, mystery men and mad scientists. Nefarious villains and strange creatures cast their twisted shadow over civilization from their lairs in exotic locations. New and terrible technologies mix with forbidden knowledge in the hands of madmen, megalomaniacs and the rising Nazi menace!

Using the powerful and flexible Vortex System under license from Cubicle 7 (Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space, Primeval and Ken Spencer's Rocket Age) Pulp Fantastic is the first in a series of pulp adventure sourcebooks from Battlefield Press, written by Chris Halliday, Chris Helton, Jon Nichols and Jonathan M. Thompson, and featuring original fiction by Jon Nichols.

This game has been completed, and is a complete Role Playing Game. All you need is this game, a pencil, paper, some dice and friends. Backers will receive the PDF immediately when the kickstarter ends. The funds are being used to recover costs of production of Pulp Fantastic and to buy new artwork for the first supplement.

The Kickstarter display has cut off the top and bottom of the image,so we have reprinted it for you here.

Add-Ons

Additional Copies of the Main Book. Already getting a physical book, but want more than one copy of the book? Sure thing! It's usually possible to save money by going in with friends. Just add these amounts on to your pledges; when the Kickstarter is over, we'll ask you what you ordered and make sure we have it right. To add on one or more books, you must already be getting a physical book, and it can only be of the level you initially ordered.

  • US/UK backers: please add +$20 per additional softcover book and +30 per additional hardcover book. Includes shipping.
  • Non-US/UK backers: please add +$20 per additional softcover book and +30 per additional hardcover book, with $35 additional shipping for up to five books. Yep, international shipping is still ridiculously expensive, and we wish we could change it; for instance, it costs us $89 to ship 2 books to Switzerland. If you're an international customer, we won't mind at all if you pick a PDF or decide to go through your local game store instead. See Shipping Details below for more information.

Shipping Details

As you've probably heard from other publishers, international shipping prices are currently out of control. Shipping a book the size of Pulp Fantastic from the US to Canada now costs significantly more than $30 in shipping alone. Yeah, we didn't believe it either. It gets even worse if you add anything that isn't printed. That's why we aren't currently offering official Pulp Fantastic dice; add a single d6 to a domestic shipping order and you can no longer send it media mail, causing the price to skyrocket.

We include shipping in pledge costs for all US and UK orders, as Battlefield Press is located in US, and the books are being printed in the US. To (almost) cover our shipping costs, we need to charge an additional $20 (softcover) or $30 (hardcover) shipping for customers elsewhere in the world -- Canada, Europe, Australia, and elsewhere. We're as aware as you are that that's almost as much as the cost of the book itself! If you're an international customer, you have a couple of options for avoiding the shipping charge:

  • Pledge for the PDF instead of a physical copy
  • Ask your local gaming store to order the book for you through their distribution channels once it is printed. The softcover will be available via our distributor Chronicle City.
  • There's a shipping discount on international orders of 3-5 books at once (and for US/UK orders as well.) See Add-Ons above for details.

Risks and challenges

Like other projects of this type, this project is not without risks. Delays can happen, as we are only human. We will keep in contact with you concerning potential delays and such. The biggest possible delay will come from any stretch goals that we may include. The risk of delay happens anytime you put control in the hands of another person, who has their own issues they must deal with as well.
