Savage Tales #3: On the Rocks


Welcome to Takanak City and the Roaring Twenties!

In this Savage Worlds adventure, a group of mugs is hired to escort an expensive statuette from an antiquities dealer to the estate of the reclusive millionaire, Hugh Howards. Things don't go as planned, however, and the heroes wind up in a free-for-all in one of Takanak City's most exclusive speakeasies--the Carat Club.

On the Rocks features new Hindrances, a new power, a new relic, pregenerated player characters, and Figure Flats for all the characters you'll encounter!

This was a bit disappointing as pulp adventures go. It was too linear with an unsatisfying ending. With a little work it could be quite good though, and does come with some useful standups and a speakeasy setting. My biggest complaint was that it wa [...]

This is a pretty good delivery from Savage Worlds, but I would suggest 50 Fantoms or Evernight first. [...]

I have to say this was a disappointment. The background material was stellar, and it comes with flat figures. The adventure is very weak and short however, and I don't think it does the material justice. [...]

I had essentially already purchased this adventure when I'd bought the Games Unplugged it originially appeared in. I'd like to see more the setting & if you don't have that issue buy it. [...]

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.
