Hardwired Hinterland -- 2nd Edition 2019
Richard Tucholka’s classic world of fantasy flight returns, reorganized, revised and expanded to 250 incomparable pages of Tri Tac’s signature weirdness and humor set in the same universe as Fringeworthy.
The setting is an endless grid of 200 square mile island Environs, each with a unique culture and dangers and dumps of technological materials to mine, surrounded by impassable seas. Vintage aircraft are readily available as salvage, however, and sturdy adventurers make good use of them. Hopping from Environ to Environ trading, delivering the mail or searching for adventure. Our heroes will face everything from cannibals to kaiju as they uncover lost treasures and brave the unknown.

● 25 Environs (That take little conversion to make over into Fringewothy Alts.)
● More than 25 scenarios and adventure seeds for your GMing pleasure.
● Dozens of pages of new NPCs, locations, and vintage plane statistics.
● Updated generic mechanics for modern players AND all the (optional) tables that classic Tri Tac fans demand!
● Spiffy new art, bookmarks, index and TOC.

Not a formal one. There is a section with unstatted critters.

The setting looks very interesting. But I don't know anything about the system. Adding it to my wishlist for now.

Got the pdf and the print book. It's taken the 1st edition and expanded it. More adventure ideas, more locations. I like it a lot. I haven't had the chance to run this game, but it's a wonderfully weird and diverse world.

It costs less on our home page, this shop is mostly to sell our Print on Demand items. The pdfs here tend to be a bit more than on our home page because of the fact we do not get full price for things we sell here.
I am sorry but I have paid close to 30 for a 200+ page pdf from some of the other vendors on this site and this book is 250 pages long. So while it is higher than you are willing to pay, it is really not that much different than many others charge here. If anything our Print on Demand prices are a bit low compared to others of its size.

I love your stuff buy I will not pay 30 bucks for a PDF. EVER!
The standard of the publishing industry is an electronic book should cost about 15-20% of the print book.
You have priced yourself out of a sale.

HH was Richard's Jimmy Buffet world, place where second chances came true and no one died of disease or old age. Adventure was king and the sky was the limit. Overall think of Tailspin meets Tales of a Golden Monkey :) using your favorite rules system.

This looks kind of interesting ... but there's virtually no information about it, neither here nor in the web (except für some actual play podcasts). What kind of setting is this? Does it come with a system? The text here on drivethru seems shortcut, followed by a list of "2nd Edition Expansions" that tells a person who doenst already know about the setting virtually nothing. And there's no preview ...

I enabled the 20 page preview for this book. Sorry I didn't realize I forgot to turn it on.

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.
