Book 1: The Rise of Quick-Clank McCrank

A Wild West-themed fantasy adventure set within the town of Westhallow, a small far-flung farmstead settlement on the edge of civilization. You should be able to drop this adventure into any campaign setting, published or otherwise. This adventure contains a balanced mix of the three pillars of RPG play: Social Interaction, Exploration, and Combat.

The aim for this first adventure is to allow the players to explore and discover Westhallow, and act as the introductory adventure for a yee-hawin’, knee-slappin’, Wild West setting.

One night the clockwork invention of tinkerer gnome Bellis Rustgear malfunctioned taking on a fictitious Wild West personality. Naming itself Quick-Clank McCrank, the construct stole Bellis’s other unique inventions, the leadspitter pistols. Creating new clockwork humanoids that share its bizarre mannerisms and armed with Bellis’s weapons, Quick-Clank has taken control of Westhallow and forced the residents to roleplay its vision of a strange society where people use words like ‘howdy’ and ‘yeehaw.’

Now Quick-Clank is ready to inflict some new and dangerous oddity onto the good people of Westhallow; an event that will take its rootin’-tootin’ vision to the extreme!


Book 2: A Regional Guide to Westhallow

A region on a remote frontier, far from the reach of great kingdoms or noble houses, has been changed for hundreds of miles around into a rugged land of scrub-brush desert, rugged badlands, and untamed forests. The architect of this transformation has not stopped with geography; the magical phenomenon has turned people and creatures to match its aesthetic of what people have begun to call ‘the Untamed West.’ People begin to speak with strange turns of phrase like “howdy,” terms of familiarity like “partner,” and exclamations of “yee-haw!”

This gazetteer describes the many unique locations in the town of Westhallow and its surrounding regions to the north and south to give you everything you need to keep adventuring in this strange wierd west themed setting.


Book 3: The Bounty Board of the Dusty Boot Saloon

While the Wranglers of Westhallow adventure series has main adventure arcs, there are times when the heroes of Westhallow are between adventures. This is a perfect time to throw in some mini-quests and drop-in encounters to keep the town happenings revolving.

There are several such quests in this book, ranging from singular encounters to a multi-encounter mini-quest. These are perfect to bridge gaps between levels for different main adventures should the characters need to reach a certain level to progress your campaign.


Book 4: Spirit of the Untamed West 

A Wild West-themed fantasy adventure set around the region of Westhallow, a small far-flung farmstead settlement on the edge of civilization. You should be able to drop this adventure into any campaign setting, published or otherwise. This adventure contains a balanced mix of the three pillars of RPG play: Social Interaction, Exploration, and Combat.

The town of Westhallow has become the origin point for a strange, region-wide transformation. Tens of thousands of square miles have turned from temperate fields and forests to stretches of desert scrubland, rolling plains, mountainous valleys, and wind-swept rock formations, all jampacked together in a geographical hodgepodge.

Now, a tinker gnome named Bellis Rustgear has hired your party of unlikely heroes to investigate the source of these strange changes and report back to her with solid information. This quest will lead the party on a whacky, outragous and super fun romp across the outer landscapes of Westhallow with some unlikely allies by their side!


The Series:

Wranglers of Westhallow is a lightly humored Wild West-themed adventure series designed for the 5th Edition (OGL) rule-set. It is jam packed full of pop culture references, parody, thematic and often hilarious situations, and super interesting and colorful characters that will stick with you for life.

The Rise of Quick-Clank McCrank is designed to be an introductory adventure, by which follow-up adventures are intended to be run as direct sequels. These additional adventures are playable in any order. The Rise of QuickClank McCrank is the ground-zero event that acts as the origin and center of a spoke wheel of adventures that follow. We call this the Westhallow Wagon-wheel Approach.

Spirit of the Untamed West is designed to be a follow-up adventure to the introductory adventure, The Rise of Quick-Clank McCrank. Other follow-up adventures will also be direct sequels and are intended to be playable in any order, this adventure included. The Rise of Quick-Clank McCrank is the ground-zero event that acts as the origin and center of a spoked wheel of adventures that follow. We call this the Westhallow Wagon-wheel Approach.

I'll put up my review tomorrow because you have to wait 24hrs. Just a place for my questions as I read through it: Is the Stand-off with Tumblewheeze just one round ? Is damage to the PC handled normally but not to Tumblewheeze?

Hi there Jeremy,

Firstly, thanks for the purchase.

That's correct, only 1 round and damage as per normal for the PC.

Thanks. I read the rest and didn't have any other questions. A couple minor items I did not put in my review because they did not affect it but wanted to mention are 1) I think there's some opportunity for more interesting creature abilities then what is presented like with Quick-Clank-maybe the spider has a flamethrower that can recharge or something? 2) I wish the creatures that are in the back of the book were hyperlinked or had a page number 3) is "viscious" an alternate spelling of "vicious"? I thought maybe it was "viscous" because they are mechanical but I don't know. Thank you

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.
