Spring-Heeled Jack


Spring-Heeled Jack

Naughty children are told stories of a hopping devil that will spirit them away for misdeeds, pranks, and shenanigans. If they aren’t good little boys and girls this springing devil will find them, scare them near to death, and if they are especially wicked take them away.

Spring-Heeled Jack, so named for their vaunted jumping ability, first came to the attention of the public in the mid-1830s. Soon stories of their troublemaking ways would spread throughout the British Isles and beyond turning up in urban settings throughout the world.

Spring-Heeled Jack explores the legend of Jack, giving the GM everything they need to insert them into their Whispers in the Dark campaign:

  • The legend of Spring-Heeled Jack
  • Two Statblocks - Gentleman Jack and The Devil Jack
  • Handout for your players
  • Scenario Hooks
  • Using Spring-Heeled Jack in your campaign

For use with Whispers in the Dark, but with plenty of system agnostic details to be of use with any system set in a the Gaslight Era.

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.
