Fort Griffin Echo, Vol. 1, No. 1

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the rebirth of The Fort Griffin Echo. Originally published from 1879 to 1882, The Fort Griffin Echo was a fine example of a frontier newspaper. Although it didn't stay in circulation for a terribly long period of time, its demise had less to do with the quality of its journalism, and more with the death of its hometown. We here at Dog House Rules hope to continue the proud tradition of this once great American newspaper. As with many of yesteryear's papers, the Echo's publishing schedule will be irregular, determined by the events of the day rather than an arbitrary daily or weekly deadline.


The Way it Was: The first of a series of honest-to-goodness real news stories unearthed by the Echo editors -- stories that give a taste of the real life on the Frontier.

Black Hat/White Hat: Law and order is a mighty likely theme in Western role playing, so Christopher S. Warner has rounded up a fictional posse inspired by the real events from theThe Way it Was story.

Weapon Report: In a recurring column, DHR's resident scientist, Bradley W. Hindman, offers optional rules for weapon misfires and a look at some special weapons.

Council Fires: The Comanche: Geoff Spakes offers loads of information about the masters of the plains, the Comanche, including the first prestige classes explicitly designed for Sidewinder: Recoiled.

Cinema Styles: Eye-talian Style: T.L. Gregory and Mr. Hindman serve up some knee-slapping "Eye-talian" style campaign flavor. Get ready to bust a gut.

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.
