Old School Podcast: Rippers at RavenCon Actual Play (audio product)


If there was one game that I knew I wanted to get in at RavenCon, it had to be a game run by Paul Charran. I met Paul at one of his games last year and I learned from him one of the major elements missing from my own games at the time, bringing energy to the table. Paul is filled with laughter, movie quotes, and quips, but manages to not let those asides tear him away from great storytelling and role play opportunities at the same time. He makes the table excited to play, and I was stoked that this year he allowed me to record one of his sessions to share with the Troll ITC community.

Paul runs Savage Worlds primarily (perhaps exclusively at this point, I don't know him well enough to say) and for this game we took on the role of a team of monster hunters in the late 1800′s Rippers setting by Pinnacle Entertainment Group.

Our group, as you'll hear in the audio, was hired to investigate the brutal murder of an English gentleman, under the pretense that it seemed more mundane than supernatural. Of course we players knew something else was afoot. Our adventures led us to the scene of the crime and a nearby asylum, where strange medical practices were performed on known serial killers, a likely lead in our sort of work.

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.
