100 Items in a Wild West Snake Oil Salesman's Pocket

100 Items in a Wild West Snake Oil Salesman's Pocket


Snake Oil Salesmen typically work by different titles. Some will call them Doctor or Professor, while others will call them quacks, hucksters, and charlatans. These well-dressed frauds travel with their medicine wagons around the old West offering medicine to those hopeful or desperate enough to believe their claims of salvation. And once in a while their claims are true ...

This list is intended for any Western game (like Boot Hill, Tall Tales, Deadlands, Wild West, Shooting Iron, etc.) where patches of civilization cluster around a small town or old fort. This list can be applied to a cornered con man, a greedy and grim money grubbing gent, or just as a way to add new dimension to your next plotting professor or dodgy doctor. NOTE: With this tool we sometimes refer to the Snake Oil Salesman with the abbreviation: SOS.

This Roll Percentile list has one hundred possible results in this format:

Roll result: A brief description of the object(s) that can found in pockets of this mysterious traveler.

Example 101: Paper Note - it’s a (long) hand-written speech by the SOS about one of their best selling elixirs.

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.
