Turquoise Valley

Watermarked PDF

Turquoise Valley is a fictional frontier town that is usable for a variety of old west territories. Focus should be on a prairie location with surrounding copper and turquoise mining interests. This is a town that is not yet connected to the railroad but close enough to rail expansion to make the concept of a potential station feasible. This community has its share of conflicts and potential for violence and corruption, just like the real world settlements in the old west.

This product is designed in a manner to be compatible with most old west tabletop role playing games. Game specific rules are left out as well as specific prices on things. There are references to real world localities, which the GM is free to change or remove as needed. Though intended for realistic western settings this location could also be used for weird west, fantasy fusion, western horror, and other larger than life setting variants. The product consists of a brief background, two maps (one numbered and one note), and descriptions of each numbered map entry. Sprinkled throughout the entries are various notes that provide the GM potential for conflict, adventure hooks, and/or interesting encounters.

Built just outside of copper mining territory, Turquoise Valley enjoyed enough early success to allow the community to grow into a thriving little prairie town. Though still prosperous, there are signs that the economy is starting to slow down. Mayor McCarty has dreams of using his connection to the railroad company to establish a new train station in town. Being linked up to western railroad expansion is what the mayor believes will allow the community to survive and grow into a small city.
Not everyone shares the mayor’s vision. Business entrepreneur Jacob Hound seeks to gain majority control over Turquoise Valley’s economic interests and these plans would further limit his influence. Mr. Hound’s business investments are doing just fine without such growth and the entrepreneur would love run Mr. McCarty out of town and assume the role of mayor. Unfortunately for Mayor McCarty his rival Mr. Hound has a few supporters in Turquoise Valley who are not afraid to dish out a few dirty deeds…

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.
