This Action Deck is primarily designed for Wild West-themed Savage Worlds settings. It is a regular deck of playing cards that also offers the following special features:

1. Four jokers instead of the usual two, each with a suit. This will make your Savage Worlds games even crazier!

2. Prominent “countdown numbers” at the top of each card. These can be used for determining initiative order, without having to worry about suit precedence: just count down from highest to lowest.

3. A location illustration in the center of each card (except jokers). Use these locations to build a random frontier town map by drawing cards and laying them face up in a grid. Ace cards represent locations slightly outside of town, and should be placed at the edge of the map. Jokers can represent special events. This map can also be used for urban shootouts using the “Dogfights & Duels” Chase rules described in Savage Worlds.

4. A unique “wild symbol” at the bottom of each card. This symbol can be used as an improvisational prompt—for example, a “pawprint” might indicate a wild animal, tracks, hunters, or even a supernatural predator. These symbols can also provide inspiration for Dramatic Tasks, Chases, Interludes, random complications, generating adventures, and so on.

Awesome deck for a western game. It can be used as an action deck, chase deck or to flash out a city layout or come up with interludes using the symbols at the bottom of the cards. For those of us who have a hard time remembering the order of the suits [...]

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.
