5.0 out of 5 stars Great Addition to the Gurps 4e Full Color Hardbound Line 19 Dec 2010
By Michael A. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
When I first saw this book I thought, oh great, I need this book like I need a hole in my head. Well I must admit it is better than that. However I got it and it's quite amazing. The book has information on everything that you could ever want for TLs 0-4 and great ways to fit them into almost any campaign.

The production quality is very high - excellent illustrations and the page layout makes reading the text easy. The index is weel layed out and easy to use. The price is only 3 dollars more than 3e 144 pages paperbacks sold in 2004. This book "completes" the 4e hardbound book collection - 18 releases that make a great RPG that complete and ready to play. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a good book on TL 0-4 equipment
for whatever reason, it has everything you need in great detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book! 29 Oct 2011
By Paul O'Connor - Published on Amazon.com

Like the previous reviewer, I couldn't imagine why I would want Low-Tech. Wasn't the material provided in the Basic Set, Fantasy, and Banestorm sufficient? I'd run games for years in low tech settings without needing the book, so why did I need it now?

Now, after finally getting Low-Tech, I can't imagine running a medieval game without it. It turns out the medieval weapons in the Basic Set are, well, really basic. There's tons of interesting weapons and gizmos that you never knew existed with sufficient background to give the player and GM context about when they'd be appropriate.

What is Banded armor and who used it and why? What is the effective difference between a Katana and a Broadsword? What were the early types of gunpowder weapons like? All of these questions and more will be quickly answered if you buy this book.

But wait, there's more!!

This book would have been double its current size if Steve Jackson Games hadn't made a marketing decision to keep this book skinny. Instead they put their very useful and very detailed information about Kingdoms and Philosophers, Weapons and Fighting, and Common Life in three separate PDF available for download on their website. I've bought the first and the third supplements and can attest that they are REALLY good.

Now go out and buy this book and GURPS Horror and make Evil Stevie and his merry bunch of game-writers happy so they'll write more good stuff!

Low-Tech is a fantastic supplement for GURPS. This book brings all low-tech equipment, with incredible detail.
What greatly facilitates the players and the GM, because it facilitates the workings view these historical items.

The great advantage of the Gurps system are your extra books, which complete the game
4.0 out of 5 stars Solid book with good background info, not perfect. 14 Aug 2013
By Electric Hermit - Published on Amazon.com

The book as written is a very good resource for low tech (stone age through the age of sail) settings and technology levels. I have two criticisms of this book (which are actually praise for other GURPS products). It doesn't meet the heights of excellence that high-tech did, though that book would be a hard act for any supplement to follow. Upon realizing that this book is about a hundred pages shorter than High-Tech, I was disappointed that the wonderful material from Low-Tech Companion 1-3 was not integrated into the main volume. What I'm really saying is: Buy this book, buy the companions, and buy High Tech.
