The Dog House Gang offers a special introductory adventure for Wild West roleplayin' using the Savage Worlds system -- Buckshots: Johnny Comes Marching Home.

Now, usually, we like to whet your appetite by providin' a short synopsis of the contents. In this case, if we serve up much more than a nibble, well, we'd be givin' away the farm, so to speak. So iffin' you don't mind, we'll just say that our heroes are returning home after an extended absence (the War as it were), but they must meet one more challenge before they can rest their weary bones.

This 44 page Savaged adventure features five full-scale Scenes, along with six major NPCs and some scattergun-fodder mooks. While Johnny is intended for 4-8 characters of Novice rank who are just beginnin' their wild west adventurin', this Buckshot also comes loaded with ideas for scalin' the adventure to handle various character ranks and numbers.

With statistics for the Savage Worlds system, Johnny Comes Marching Home can jump start aSavaged Wild West game, or do a bang-up job as a one-time shoot 'em up. This introductory adventure contains:

  • Introduction & Adventure Synopsis: A brief narrative describin' how the adventure should play out, so the GM (we like to say "Judge") can get saddled up quick-like.
  • For the Judge: Secrets and scuttlebutt that players shouldn't read unless they have a hankerin' to get their eyes burned out of their sockets.
  • Getting Started: Some quick-hittin' tips for the Judge to fold this adventure into a home-brewed game or to prepare for a one night stand, so to speak.
  • Scenes: Fully described roleplayin' and combat scenes where all the action happens, including maps, "read-aloud" text, rules, variables and sundry details for the Judge.
  • Forks in the Road: Alternate ways to shoot these Buckshots into an ongoing campaign or load up a one-shot adventure on the frontier.
  • Personalities: Full character descriptions for all the characters involved in the adventure, including full statistic blocks for the Savage Worlds game system.
  • New Hindrance: Rules for a new Hindrance used for one of the characters and suitable for any Savaged game.
  • Gameplay Aids: Various tools for the Judge, including full character sheets that Judges can hand out to players who might be takin' on the role of an NPC, as well as special "index-card" combat blocks designed special-like for Savage Worlds.

    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.
