The Dwarf's Demise (SWADE)


Many envied Rolf Undermountain. Earlier today, the brilliant, wealthy dirigible tycoon was found dead in his office. Police ask the PCs to solve the murder. Is his partner really the culprit?

This pulp mystery takes characters on a wild ride among the movers and shakers of downtown Brighton. What kinds of secrets did Rolf hold? Who would benefit the most from his death? In the end, will the characters find an even greater threat?

The Dwarf’s Demise takes place in the world of By a Thread, a setting for Savage Worlds created by Arme Blanche Games.

This module is intended for groups of four or five players, but it easily scales to larger or smaller groups. Six pregenerated characters are included.

Note: A copy of Savage Worlds is required for play. Using the pregenerated characters, this module can be played without a copy of By a Thread.

There are maps in the pdf, but, unfortunately, they are not at full scale. You'd need to purchase them separately.

I see there is a VTT Map Pack for this game. If I buy this are the maps included or would I have to buy them separately?

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.
