Gunpowder in the Morning

Selected Option:

A convention-style, traditional Western adventure for Savage Worlds!

The comings and goings of soldiers, big bugs, and famous folk are nothing new to Fort Griffin and the town called The Flat. Things are always astir in these parts. Today ain’t no exception. 

Gunpowder in the Morning is a convention-style, traditional Western encounter. This scenario uses DHR’s Fort Griffin setting for Savage Worlds. You can play with seven pre-generated Veteran Rank heroes in a one session convention-style game, fold the adventure into an ongoing game starring existing heroes, or cook up your own brew somewhere in between.

Whether you've been in town before or just settled in for your first night after arriving on the latest stagecoach, you have your own reasons for spending time in this notable burg. You wake up this morning with a distinct notion of something powerful in the air.

Although this adventure doesn't require Fort Griffin Savaged, it's designed so you can use a few of the setting's building descriptions and maps (ready for DIY 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 Gunpowder in the Morning. Did we mention it's FREE?

DHR is an Ace licensee publisher for Savage Worlds. 

The PDF is 35 pages, the POD is 48 pages—both have the same content as follows:

  • A two-act adventure with detailed backstory and town notes.

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.
