Switchblade City 01: Randy's Pool Hall (Modern Generic)

Watermarked PDF

A Nice Little Place To Get Your Head Busted In By Some Drunken Thug With A Pool Stick....

Randy's Pool Hall is located in a neglected looking building that is part of a rundown shopping center area.  Originally the location of a small grocery store, the business was deemed a failure after a couple of decades of operation. The grocery store was shut down and the building was abandoned. Around ten years ago local resident Randy Widener purchased the empty building and turned it into a pool hall complete with serving bar and small arcade room. Since opening up, Randy's Pool Hall has earned an unsavory reputation for illegal, "under the table" billiards gambling and its drunken, rowdy patrons.

Though worse places certainly exist within the city, Randy's Pool Hall is consider to be the kind of place to go to if you are actively looking to find trouble. The regulars that hang out at the joint are seedy sorts of characters and many of them have a criminal history. While his own legal record is clean, it is believed that the owner of the establishment has ties with local criminal influences.

About The Switchblade City Series:

Switchblade City is a series of universal/system generic supplement products for modern era role playing games. Focus is placed upon various locations that would be commonly found in the rougher parts of an urban or suburban community. Though each location offers potential use in a cyberpunk or similar near dark future setting, the most compatible timeline for many Switchblade City locations is now (or, as it is being written, 2013 AD). Though the United States is the recommended geographic location for most settings, it is possible that many Switchblade City locations can be placed in other existing areas with little to no modifications.
Though immediately ready for use in realistic modern crime settings, Switchblade City locations are perfect for other modern genres, such superhero, horror, and weird horror. The Game Master (GM) is encouraged to add to or modify the details of Switchblade City location to suit the needs of their ongoing campaign.

My husband and I both looked over this little gem, and we agree, it's a well-put together and useful supplement. It's a good basis for several settings, including futuristic (within limits). We thought it could easily be used in something like Shadow [...]

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.
