“The quaint town of Maidenstead is usually a quiet and peaceful place, but in recent weeks it’s been plagued by a series of bizarre mysteries. Victims and witnesses have been left baffled and bemused, and even the local police officers appear to have no idea what is really going on.

From vanishing criminals and impossible thefts to psychic predictions and ghostly sightings—many believe these perplexing cases are proof of the supernatural. Yet there is always a scientific explanation to be found by those who dig deep enough to discover the truth and unmask the perpetrators.

You are a group of amateur sleuths with a reputation for solving impossible mysteries. In desperation, the police have turned to you, seeking your help in getting to the bottom of their latest case.”

Inspired by TV shows and novels such as Jonathan Creek, Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, and Father Brown, Maidenstead Mysteries is a standalone scenario for the Tricube Tales system and is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. You can print it on a single sheet of paper: The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twistsThe PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

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.
