It's time to hitch up the horses and load up the wagons; the Dog House Gang is fixin' to ride to Fort Griffin for the inaugural issue of Frontier Towns.

Frontier Towns is a support product for Old West role playin' games. The Dog House Gang plans to offer several installments. The first volume is set in Fort Griffin, Texas-with two more volumes set there as well.

Each Frontier Towns product will come with a ready-made settin' and stand-alone buildings complete with maps, history, inhabitants, adventure ideas and full interior descriptions. We figure a Judge could take this product right off the shelf and have a town set up in no time. Or, a Judge with more time on his or her hands could pick and choose the establishments that strike a fancy, customizin' them to fit an existin' campaign.

Fort Griffin, Volume 1 has a potent five card draw of fully-described buildings for your gamin' pleasure. You'll get a pair of saloons and a pair of service establishments, along with an ace-in-the-hole: the town Jail. Read 'em and reap:

Shannsey's Saloon: Based on the legendary saloon where Doc Holliday met Wyatt Earp, Shannsey's offers a mighty fine gatherin' place for soldiers, buffalo hunters and famous gunfighters. No tellin' who you might meet here, but don't be surprised to see Lottie Deno ("The Poker Queen") dealin' a hand of Faro.

Pete Haverty's Livery: You'll probably want to water and secure your horse before you do much else in The Flat. You can count on Pete and Henry Sixkiller to do right by your trusty steed.

York & Meyers Outfitters: Need supplies before settin' off on the trail? Lucky for you, H.E. Chapin and his staff keep the place well-stocked. If they don't have it, no one does. And behave yourself, Queenie can smell trouble clear across town.

Beehive Saloon: If you're itchin' for a buzzin' good time, come see why the locals say the "Hive is Alive." Dancing girls, old-timey piano, dice games, Faro, poker, and plenty of good spirits. Not to mention the likes of Big Nose Kate, Doc Holliday and Mike Fogerty.

Picket Jail: The Flat might be wild and wooly, but it ain't lawless. Iffin you decide to stir up too much trouble, you might earn a "visit" to Picket Jail, courtesy of Sheriff Billy Cruger and his deputies.

But that ain't the whole shootin' match, no sir. You'll also get full scale battle maps that you can print out for table-top gamin' sessions (in 15mm and 25mm) and a final chapter containing 35 adventure and encounter possibilities (and a few extra cowpokes) that we've rustled up for your enjoyment.

    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.
