Watermarked PDF

This adventure pack for Tephra: the Steampunk RPG comes with a fully developed Weird West town jam-packed with awesome material that Narrators can use to mesmerize players into an immersion-induced coma! This book comes with a complete adventure, setting, and a brand new crafting system. We even threw in our Rapid-Fire Guide, so if you've never played Tephra before, worry not! We've got you covered.


What’s a “Tephra”?

Tephra is the award-winning steampunk roleplaying game that has caused a global addiction. This game was designed for manic high-flying combat, astonishing crafted gizmos, weapons, and automatons, and includes a fast and class-free character creation system. Tephra is easy to pick up but robust enough to hold up game after game. All you need is a d12 to play. Our Playing Guide alone is enough to keep you and your adventuring party entertained for a hundred days and nights!


What's in this crazy adventure? We took one Wild West trading town and added equal parts inventors, investors, and crazies, mixed ‘em around in a bowl, and out popped the town of Rangston. We just know you’re going to love exploring this charming settlement with its vibrant community of scientific and delirious minds. Bump shoulders with captains of industry as they wildly speculate on the future value of property in the area. Players will be delighted at the compelling plot hooks and in-depth background stories.

Falling Gears

You might be asking yourself, “Who is this Golden Bandit fella and why’s he in the title?” Great question, I can see you’re a sharp one. The Golden Bandit is the scourge of Rangston. He and his gang of riff-raff stole the face off the town’s clock tower last year, and now he‘s announced that they’re going to steal the rest of it. The automaton sheriff and his deputies are woefully unprepared, and it’s up to you and your compatriots to lend a hand. (Seriously, if you don’t buy this adventure, we’re pretty sure Rangston is going to go belly-up.)

Collapsible Ladder

Ever wanted a gizmo that would skin a rabbit for you? Do you wish there was a contraption that could tell the difference between a push potions and poisonous potables? How about a gadget that keeps your hair perfectly coiffed in the heat of battle? We’ve got a widget for that! Instead of asking what a widget does, it’s better to ask what it doesn’t. What doesn’t it do? I don’t know. Seriously, nobody can tell me.

Did you think we were done? Nope, there’s even more! Check out Misery’s Mortuary: a prison for people who just can’t quite stay dead. Steampunk western zombies? We went there. You can thank us later.

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.
