Dr. Grordbort’s Scientific Adventure Violence

Grab your raygun, strap in, and blaze your smoking, likely radioactive, trail through the Solar System!


Blast off into a retro-futuristic, pulp sci-fi cosmos bursting with rayguns, rocketships, robots, and ... did we mention rayguns?


Based on the comics, art, and universe invented by Wētā Workshop’s Greg Broadmore, this is a unique and comprehensive guide to creating outlandish, interplanetary adventures compatible with the fifth and fifth-and-a-half editions of some game with dragons and other silly, scientifically unfounded elements.

Packed with more than 400 illustrations by Broadmore and Wētā Workshop artists, this technological tome features:

  • All 10 5E character classes ... but scientized! Plus 5 (known) Species and 20 new Backgrounds to choose from.
  • 125+ rayguns, gadgets, gizmos, armour, and adventuring gear.
  • 26 vehicles — from tanks and rockets to walkers and airships — plus rules for air-to-air, space-to-space, and orbit-to-ground combat.
  • 61 creatures, 26 NPCs, and several factions vying for power.
  • 8 bizarre and powerful technology types, each with their own unique malfunctions table.
  • 4 worlds to explore, each with its own atmospheric conditions, secrets, and plot hooks — plus guidance on creating adventures in the great beyond!
  • Functional, yet flavourful, custom designed digital Character Sheets by Hans Kleinenberg


“A dazzling ‘Uchronism’ that works both as a satire of our times and as a convex mirror for a future that never was. A violent, vibrant Neverland, witty and brilliantly realized.”

- Guillermo del Toro on Dr. Grordbort Presents Victory


“Dr. Grordbort’s Scientific Adventure Violence is a rallying call to all interplanetary explorers, galactic outlaws, lantern-jawed heroes and citizens of the galaxy — the adventure begins here!”

- Levi Combs of Planet X Games

Shipping Information

Orders typically ship within 24-48 hours after being placed, business days only Monday - Friday. If you place an order on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday then it will not ship until the following business week. Shirts and Hoodies will ship separately.

We use USPS, UPS and DHL. Rates are based on current service rates and are subject to change. For the majority of items we ship in deluxe padded bubble mailers with bags and boards for added protection or with cardboard book mailers. Larger orders will be finely packed as well. We care about the product getting to you safe and secure.  





    Standard Shipping (USPS Priority, UPS, and DHL)

    • Takes 2-4 Business days, usually
    • Tracking included
    • All items in store are available to be shipped using these methods
    • Insured, lost or damaged items will be covered


    Please note that ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Shipments are sent via DHL. Shipping does not include customs fees, which are subject to each countries' tax requirement. We want you to buy with confidence but please understand that once the items leave the USA we will not be responsible for lost or damaged items unless you contact us to get additional insurance if available. 


    If your shipment is returned to us due to insufficient address or marked as undeliverable for any reason, we will need to collect another shipping fee in order to resend your item. 

    If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee. 


    Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 


    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
