Bad Night in El Rey

Selected Option:
Watermarked PDF

Watermarked PDF + Softcover, Standard Color Book

Your gang just stole a safe from the bank in a silver mining town. Your group of dangerous outlaws has a rendezvous with a safecracker in a backwater burg called El Rey, where you aim to lie low until sun-up. Somehow, things just don't feel right. Can you trust your pards? Can you live through the night?

Bad Night in El Rey is a convention-style Western with a weird twist. This scenario uses DHR’s Fort Griffin setting for Savage Worlds. While Bad Night in El Rey borrows from Fort Griffin Savaged, this scenario takes place in its own locale with its own backstory. If you are already using Fort Griffin as a setting, you can play El Rey as a one time lark, or adapt the adventure to your game.

Although this adventure doesn't require Fort Griffin Savaged, it's designed so you can use four of the 17 Fort Griffin building descriptions and maps (ready for VTT) as well as various nonplayer stats and descriptions.

Fort Griffin Savaged offers a traditional Wild West setting designed for Savage Worlds, with a passel of weird ideas on the side.

Western Table Tents is a FREE pdf with printable table tents to enhance your convention-style game. Perfect for use with Bad Night in El Rey. Did we mention it's FREE?

DHR is an Ace licensee publisher for Savage Worlds. 

The Judge (that's GM to city slickers) gets the following in both the PDF (29 pages) and the POD (48 pages):

  • Backstory and Six Scenes -  Background information for the Judge to prepare and run the adventure, with six cinematic scenes to guide the gameplay.
  • Eight character sheets - A set of Seasoned outlaws for the players, each with secret motivations to make things interesting.  
  • Secret Cards - Printable cards with the character secrets, to hand out to players. You can also get a fancy set of these 18 cards by clicking this link. 
  • The Creature - Well, that's all we care to say about that, pard.

Any chance to see a preview for this? I'm pretty sure it will look great, but I like to have a look before buying.

Hi Laszlo, we just set up a quick preview so you can get an idea of the product, and added a graphic with some peeks at the pre-generated characters. If we show much more, we'll be giving away the store, so to speak. Thanks for the nudge, and I hope this helps.

By the way, the product information says it's 48 pages, the PDF seems to be 28 pages. How many pages will be the print version?

The pdf is 28 pages plus the cover. The pod version is 44 pages plus front and back cover (and inside blank pages for the covers, totals 48).

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.
