Welcome to New Liberty!

Please enjoy your stay.  Get a room at The New Liberty Hotel or Miss Esther's Boarding House!  Enjoy some entertainment at The Elkhorn Palace!  Get a drink at the Shining Star, some food at Dawson's, or play some faro at The Lucky 7.

New Liberty is a town setting for Rider for use as a base of operations for your characters or as a location for adventure for those just passing through.  All of the buildings of the town are detailed as well as the NPCs who inhabit the town.  New Liberty comes with a wealth of information and several short adventures to get you started with Rider!

Though made with Rider, our Cepheus Engine Western in mind, this sourcebook can be used with any Western RPG or any place where a small Western-style town might fit.

Come on in to town!  We'd love to have you stay for a while!

The town is small with only 22 buildings total with no outbuildings on the map. Located in Wyoming somebody feels the need to plant cactus around town. Overall this product is a disappointment and feels more like a TSR product from the 80's than something from Independence Games.

I'm guessing that the cactus joke just fell flat. The sort of cacti shown in the town don't grow in Wyoming but, like many television Westerns, they are present anyway in tons of TV shows and movies. For instance, The Searchers is supposed to take place in Eastern Texas but the entirety of the movie is clearly in Monument Valley in Arizona.

I thought it would be funny to pay homage to that sort of thing and sort of make a joke out of the preacher's wife wanting to have cacti of the sort not found in the area. However, I guess this joke didn't work out as well as I might have thought it would. Oh well.

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.
