An Introduction to the Tales of Gunslingers, Samurai, Gangsters, Barbarians, and Steampunk in a Post-Apocalyptic World of Qi Warriors

“These are not mere contraptions built from the scrap metal of old, my dear apprentice. These are the foundation for a new world, and those who build them control its fate.”  – Deckland Burr, creator of The Salvation

The One Land used to be a place of beauty, co-operation, and progress. It was the envy of all the known universe, built and nourished under the guidance of the Elemental Spirits that created it. We were their chosen ones, gifted with sentience, emotion, and creativity. All until the All-Father, creator of everything, became jealous of this world doted on by his children. So he came down in his true form and sought to wipe it from existence. His children fought back to protect what they had built and locked the All-Father (now known by his proper name, Chaos) within the Shard of Hope.

That was then. This is now. The battle of Chaos’ Wrath ruined this once idyllic paradise and left us scrambling to make ends meet under the fury of the warlords controlling the remaining Five Cities. And let us not forget about the Wastes, the nuclear desert where Chaos began his path of destruction. Things are bleak and a world this damaged needs heroes to rise up and show the people hope against the odds. That hope begins with Legends.

"If you are already prepared to jump into a narrative game . . . there is a lot of potential for cinematic action in a wild and imaginative setting, in a book that looks great and is structured to be very friendly to the Director running the adventures." - Gnome Stew

High Plains Samurai: Legends provides a one-shot experience to this storytelling RPG of epic exploits against a post-apocalyptic, high fantasy setting. Acting as both a preview for the upcoming High Plains Samurai Roleplaying Game and a stand-alone version, players will have a chance to tell their own versions of three storylines using condensed rules and pre-generated lead characters. Master the political intrigue and dangers of Yung Zhi while bringing in the gunrunner, Dollface, in Showdown In Yung Zhi; survive another day on the Salvation as it races through the Wastes in To Catch A Train; and discover the vengeance and sheer power of the legendary figure known only as Black Scorpion.

A perfect way to bring HPS to your favourite convention or as an introduction to your friends before the release of the HPS core rulebook (currently slated for late Summer/early Fall 2018).

Your Legends are only the beginning.

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.
