The Return of The Squid, a StoryCube: RPG Adventure for the Heroes of the Tortoise Setting

It's been nearly a decade since The Squid, the most successful crime lord in Tortuga City's history, had his city-wide organized crime ring toppled by The Heroes of The Tortoise, but for the first time in years crime rates had began to rise again in the city.

That was two years ago, and now criminal efforts culminating in a number of shadowy organizations have reached such a fever pitch that a New Heroes of The Tortoise has begun to rise in response.

Unlike the original crime-fighting group who disbanded when their purpose came to an end, these new heroes are disorganized and banded together into loose cells formed by individual former Heroes who still had fight in them.

In The Return of The Squid, a team of not-quite-super heroes joins a cell run by Skye, a seemingly new hero who bears a stunning resemblance to Blue Punch, one of the youngest members of the old Heroes of The Tortoise, as she attempts to stop the creation of a doomsday device by one of The Squid's former lieutenants that could be used to hold the entire city hostage or even destroy it in retribution for the loss of the crime lord to whom so many were loyal.

In this first of a campaign of adventures centered around stopping this device and the plans of its creator, a group of one to six players will take on the roles of new heroes to infiltrate the corporate office building in which the plans for the device are believed to be stored and attempt to stop their creator, former Squid agent Mr. Gray, from passing them on to whoever he's working for.

This adventure spans, on average, seven scenes and should take a team of 1-5 players between 2 and 4 hours to complete. In addition, the adventure introduces the Heroes of The Tortiose setting conceived by Greg Schulze and developed by Stone Lovecharm.

Format
Original electronic
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.
