  • Create your own characters - quick and easy.

  • Control of the Initiative is based on events as they occur during the scenario rather than arbitrary die-rolls.
  • Fights are fast-paced and simultaneously dangerous for both characters, instead of the old I-shoot-then-you-shoot sequence.
  • Perils and challenges are unpredictable and have multiple paths to success.
  • Scenarios are plot-driven, encouraging action, and offering an array of different rewards.
  • Through campaigns and experience your characters can increase their skills and develop new abilities.
  • Includes rules for SOLO, CO-OP, VERSUS, loads of options rules, and so much more!

This mentions solo rules. I want this for solo only play. I saw there is a set of solo cards for the earlier version of Pulp Alley, does this have the same system included, or is that another thing all together? I watched a play through with the cards and it seemed like a lot of fun.

Can you play Flash Gordon type pulp games with these rules?

Hi Anthony,

Yes, we've played a lot of sci-fi scenarios with Pulp Alley.

Pulp Alley was designed to recreate all of the pulp style genres -- Old West, High Adventure, Horror, Sci-Fi, War Tale, Vigilantes, and so on.

Stay Well,

Is there going to be a pod option?

I had not really considered POD but I will check it out. Thanks for the suggestion.
In the meantime, we stock all of our products in print on the Pulp Alley store -
And if you're in the UK or EU, Sally 4th carries lots of our stock in print.

Stay Well,

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.
