The Pawn - A Playbook for The Between: Ghosts of El Paso

Suggested Price $2.50

Ever since you were brought into this cruel world, you've been moving from place to place, squat to squat, and payday to payday. Your family taught you everything you needed to know to eke out a meager existence for yourself, and always put you and your needs above theirs. That is, until you got to El Paso six years ago. The Wounded Night is what the folk 'round here call it, and they say everyone in town's lost someone to it. The Wounded Night and its strange tricks took your family from you, but luckily enough someone's still looking out for you; they set you up here in town with a shop and home, and only asked your favor in return. Now you're here, and with the Wounded Night rearing its ugly hide again, it's time you got back at it for all it's taken. It's time to join up with the Vigilance Committee.

The Pawn is a playbook for Daniel Qualls & Jason Cordova's The Between: Ghosts of El Paso. This playbook focuses heavily on themes of desperation and classism, and players should keep this in mind when selecting the playbook at character creation. You are a business owner, though not a successful one, in the frontier town of El Paso, during a phenomenon the locals call The Wounded Night. You do what you must to survive, but with the aid of a dangerous project you keep hidden away you plan to not only survive, but thrive. Select this playbook if you want to be a shady pawn dealer with a dark secret, if you want to haggle with people and paranormal entities alike, or explore life as a struggling business owner in a tumultuous time.

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.
