THRILLING TALES: Suddenly...Encounters

Watermarked PDF
Adamant Entertainment brings the pulse-pounding excitement of the pulp genre to D20 Modern with Thrilling Tales!

THRILLING TALES: Suddenly...Encounters!, written by Shannon Kalvar, presents a series of short THRILLING TALES encounters that can be dropped into any pulp-genre adventure to spice things up! Each entry contains details of the encounter, a discussion of how characters might interact with it, and an array of elements you can introduce to further complicate the situation. You can use the supplement to jump-start a stalled situation, or as a jumping-off point for an entirely new adventure!

Contained within this product are the following pulp encounters:
  • Suddenly...The Door Bursts In! -- based on the old adage by pulp author Raymond Chandler: "When in doubt, have a man come through a door with a gun in his hand."
  • Suddenly...He Falls!--An informant suddenly falls to ground, dead by unseen means!
  • Suddenly...He Pulls a Knife!--The characters come under attack from an unexpected source!
  • Suddenly...The Bell Rings!--A damsel in distress arrives on the character's she all that she appears to be?
  • Suddenly...The Roof Falls In!--A mysterious explosion turns a routine questioning into a fight for survival!

I see the general disclaimer that this is not needed for Savage Worlds. Is there a Savage Worlds version? And are you going to translate it over? (along with the other adventures you've not done yet?)

Geez, I see how old the reviews are! I hope you are still reading these!

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.
