Rescue City is a big, bustling place. Its got skyscrapers, stadiums, a dock, a fairground, a train-station, a concert hall, museums and an airport. Life is good in Rescue City, but it does have problems. Problems like fires, hurricanes and earthquakes. Problems like gangs of clever criminals and people getting sick. Fortunately Rescue City has plenty of heroes to protect its citizens. The kind of heroes you might meet just walking down the street.

What is Rescue City?

Rescue City is an additional setting for Amazing Tales. It includes:

  • Character descriptions for Firefighters, Police Officers and Medics
  • 21 new skill descriptions
  • Advice on making up stories for kids in real world settings
  • Tips to bring Rescue City to life
  • Ten story seeds

It also includes a suggestion for a different way of structuring games of Amazing Tales - A busy day in Rescue City. 

Note that Rescue City is not illustrated.

Why play games in Rescue City?

I was inspired to write Rescue City by a comment on Facebook. Someone mentioned that they'd asked their kid what kind of hero they wanted to be in a game of Amazing Tales and they'd said 'Firefighter'. Which reminded me just how much young kids love all the emergency services. 

It also tied in with another discussion that's been going on around Amazing Tales - coming up with stories that are non-violent in nature, but still exciting. The heroes of Rescue City come up against difficult and dangerous challenges all the time, but they don't solve their problems by fighting - giving Rescue City games a different feel.

Rescue City is a perfect setting for kids who love to use their toys when playing Amazing Tales. So it's time to get out those lego firetrucks and playmobil doctors; find the dress up police set they got for Christmas and go have an adventure together!

Hi Kreeba, it's a time / cost thing basically. Art takes time and costs money. However I'm thinking that should there be a subsequent version of Amazing Tales I might add Rescue City as a full setting, with supporting art.

Fear not though, a full and illustrated Amazing Tales supplement will be out very soon indeed.

Thanks. When you do that new edition, can you add a large group play way of playing. What I have been doing for classrooms is having all the kids control 1 character and are in charge of an action/ability each. One will be walking, another flying, another being brave etc.

When its time for the player to progress a story, they have to discuss it as a group and then the one who owns that action gets to roll the dice. It also adds an additional element of debate, discussion and conflict resolution to the game which is an interesting skillset to develop with kids.

It also works for each table/group to have 1 character each within a party, but still only 1 action per round. Again to allow for whole classroom play and debate.

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.
