Thrilling Tales 2e: Pulp Villains - Von Keiner


Adamant Entertainment is pleased to present the latest in our new line of Thrilling Tales products: Pulp Villains!

Each Pulp Villains release will detail a nefarious non-player-character, ready to be dropped into your pulp-genre Savage Worlds game, fully statted, with details on their methods, motives, special gear, henchmen, allies and more -- along with a collection of adventure hooks for their use.

In this installment:

AN ASTONISHING AIRSHIP! VICIOUS VALYRIES! A TEUTONIC TERROR!  The mysterious scourge of the skies, and a self-declared "citizen of the air", Kapitän Nikodemus von Keiner embarks on a reign of terror, striking the nations of the earth with no warning!  A night-black airship appears from the clouds, blasting the terrified cities below with tremendous bolts of lightning.  Who are von Keiner and his Sky Witches?  What do they want?  Who can possibly stand against them?

Pulp Villains: Von Keiner, by David Larkins, uses the Savage Worlds rules system, as featured in THRILLING TALES 2nd Edition.

As a special bonus, Pulp Villains: Von Keiner comes with a folder of high-resolution, 11x17 copies of the schematics/deck plans for von Keiner's airship, the Himmelhexe, suitable for printing at any copy shop.  Included are a black-and-white line art version, a colorized version for an "artifact" look, a blueprint-style version, and a greyscale version as well.

Beautiful supplement, well written and informative. The blueprints are amazing. I was expecting a much more compact or raw idea, but the booklet has everything you need. Main villain history, airship "map" and individual location details, cre [...]

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.
