The Red Tower

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.00

This systemless horror scenario originally appeared in the No Security kickstarter. In The Red Tower, Capone’s reign has ended, and it remains to be seen how much of Chicago’s corrupt infrastructure will be dragged down with him. As two-bit criminals scramble to establish themselves in the power vacuum, the exposed corruption presents an opportunity for muckraking socialists to provoke the downtrodden into revolution. Meanwhile, the government must intervene to stop the Commies and audit the more legitimate business holdings listed in Capone’s infamous ledger. Despite their cross purposes, each faction finds itself stymied by an unknown forces. The mobsters are missing a Capo who was never swept up in the raids. A socialist reporter has never returned from his undercover assignment. And the government has to contend with a huge factory which, according to records, shouldn’t exist. Can a group of characters seperated by politics, ideology, and class cooperate long enough to surivive a terror antithetical to life itself?

Any suggestions for how to have a PC from each faction meet each other? I really like the idea of a Socialist, Union worker, Mafia, and BOI/FDA all working together but can't figure out a reason why they would

I know it's an old post.

Think about Departed and how the characters knew each other with their own goals conflicting. One could be a socialist organizer who is actually a gangster (like Hoffa). Another could be a crooked FBI agent who is intent on removing stronger players to gain a benefit. But the two know one another through investigations into Socialist groups and raids on said groups. Maybe something connects them like an assassination at a rally or blackmail of one another's secrets.

Miller's Crossing had an ensemble cast with characters who overlapped at various times becoming enemies and friends as well.

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.
