If I could give half-star ratings here, I'd probably give this a 3.5 - I like it better than the Radio Marauders but not quite as much as the Valley of Mystery or Curse of the Jade Monkey. It's good, but it feels more like a sketch or outline than a fu [...]

This is a surprisingly good adventure, involving the players in a unique way (they have the opportunity to foil a robbery at the museum) and taking them on a world-spanning chase to recover a series of coins that lead the way to a vast treasure plunder [...]

Matthew Barlow wrote an accurate and enthusiastic review for this product, and I fully agree with his assessment. I'd like to briefly add that this adventure could be used with other game systems that have a noir / pulp feel: Malay Coins, with l [...]

Although not exclusively, or even primarily, a 'Pulp' games system, Savage Worlds does work well with that genre. Adamant's Thrilling Tales supplement is an excellent resource for those who want a bit of two fisted action adventure, and The Malay Coins [...]

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.
