Wizards and Wiseguys: Public Enemies

Watermarked PDF
In this rollicking alt-history adventure for Savage Worlds, magic is awakened in the early 20th Century.

In 1920, at the same time alcohol was banned, a Prohibition against Sorcery was passed by the US Congress. The law deported all denizens of Faerie out of the country and prohibited the practice of magic for any reason other than law enforcement or national defense. Spell books and magic items were burned in the streets and all known portals to Faerie were sealed. 

But when sorcery is outlawed, only outlaws will be sorcerers...
In this pick-up adventure, the players take on the roles of romanticized Depression Era bandits in the mold of John Dillinger or Bonnie and Clyde. 
The public sees them as modern-day, spell-slinging Robin Hoods for taking on the banks that have foreclosed on so many. Despite the adulation they enjoy as folk heroes, it's a dangerous life as they prowl the Midwestern country roads looking for their next score. The FBI's wizards (and the dark magic they wield) are never too far behind...
Note - This adventure is set in the same universe as Kaiser's Gate (/product/104514/Kaisers-Gate). In order to make this adventure easier to use for a quick pick-up game - it uses the standard magic system for Savage Worlds. Kaiser's Gateis not required to enjoy this adventure. But it's pretty awesome and if you like alt-history in your Savage Worlds fun, you should pick it up. With a little conversion this adventure can be used with Kaiser's Gate.
This adventure includes pregenerated PCs to make it easier to use as a quick pickup adventure. 

This product requires the Savage Worlds Explorer Edition.

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.
