“Watch your step rookie, or you’ll end up in Corktown.”

Calamity brews in Detroit. Paranormal activity is on the rise. An angry spirit, a dangerous creature, or a pack of desperate cultists hides under every sewer cover and within every abandoned building. The officers of Corktown Precinct are the only thing standing between the city and paranormal onslaught. Corktown has a secret, though. Its crew of supposed washouts are either psychics or have encountered the paranormal. These damaged, over-worked, and under-paid officers must keep paranormal activity in Detroit under wraps and out of sight. No mean feat in a city as old, large, and haunted as Detroit.

Corktown officers face constant threats from mundane crime, paranormal forces, as well as their inner demons and growing madness. Do they have what it takes? Can they stand against the growing threats, or will they be consumed, along with the city they guard?

The Thin Blue Line is a modern horror setting that requires the Savage Worlds Core Rulebook and the Savage Worlds Horror Companion for use.

This PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

This is the full setting for The Thin Blue Line - A Detroit Police Story. It includes detailed information on the setting's NPCs, paranormal creatures, adventures and an adventure generator, and cursed items.

Buyers also receive PDF character sheets in Printer Friendly and Full color versions. These include standard and form-fillable variants.

Print Version Comparison

As you can see from the image below, the premium copy is printed on much thicker paper. This image compares the spines of all three versions, going from the softcover on top, to the standard hardcover to the premium hardcover.

TBL Spine Comparison

The higher grade paper from the premium version can absorb more ink. This makes the colors slightly crisper on the photographs and causes the black text to contrast a bit more highly against the page background. The below images highlight this, with the standard hardcover compared to the premium hardcover. (Interiors for the standard softcover and hardcover are essentially identical.)

This is a cracking book. I purchased POD and PDF. The print version was heavyweight. Vibrent colours on the page. The PDF is properly bookmarked and you get PDF's of the character sheet. Where it works for me is the setting and the premise and what I [...]

One of the best, if not the best, Savage Worlds urban fantasy settings I've encountered. I was initially nervous about how this setting would work for someone not from or familiar with Detroit, but after reading through the book I have no concer [...]

An excellent urban fantasy/modern horror setting about psychic police officers in Detroit. The player's guide already detailed character creation, five different types of psychics (including empaths, telepaths, intuitives, vitruvians and nullifiers), [...]

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.
