Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

The famous Beehive Saloon is hosting a high stakes poker tournament. It's a spectacle for gamblers or onlookers alike, with a $3,000 winner-take-all prize!

Lottie Deno is in town, and she is playing in the tournament. It's a rare chance to watch the "Poker Queen" in action—and an even rarer chance to play at the same table with the "Angel of San Antonio." Maybe, just maybe, a chance to beat her at her own game.

The Hive Is Alive is a convention-style, traditional Western encounter. This scenario uses DHR’s Fort Griffin setting for Savage Worlds. It takes place in The Flat, at the Beehive Saloon. If you are already using Fort Griffin Savaged or the Beehive itself in your game, you can adapt this encounter to work with existing heroes and locals. Otherwise, you can play it as a one time game. The Hive Is Alive offers an option with a weird twist, too.

Although this adventure doesn't require Fort Griffin Savaged, it's designed so you can use the Beehive Saloon building description and two-story map (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 The Hive Is Alive. Did we mention it's FREE?

DHR is an Ace licensee publisher for Savage Worlds. 

The PDF is 31 pages, the POD is 52 pages—both have the same content as follows:

  • 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 heroes 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 printed set of these 18 cards by clicking this link.
  • Stat blocks - for nonplayer Wild Cards and Extras involved in the encounter.

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.
