“The sprawling city is magnificent to behold, dazzling visitors with an endless barrage of sights and sounds, and offering everything the heart desires—for a price. But this beautiful facade conceals a deep-rooted rot that spreads throughout the social hierarchy, from despicable nobles and corrupt officials all the way down to ruthless thugs and pickpockets skulking in dingy alleys.

Standing against these evildoers are the diligent men and women of the city guard—law enforcement agents charged with serving the people and upholding the law. This military organization is responsible for investigating crimes and maintaining the peace, as well as defending the walls against invaders.

You are brave members of the city guard, working tirelessly to patrol the streets, apprehend criminals, maintain public order, and protect the citizens of this bustling metropolis.”

Tales of the City Guard is Tricube Tales adaption of the City Guard Chronicles. It is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twists. The PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

If you're interested in learning more about the City Guard Chronicles, you can join their Discord server here. While their adventures are written for the Savage Worlds system, they don't require much conversion effort to run in Tricube Tales. Conversely, if you're using Savage Worlds, you may still find Tales of the City Guard useful for its adventure generator and example scenarios.

If you're looking for further ideas and inspiration for your adventures, check out the Tricube Tales Solo Rules tables, particularly those for “Urban Adventures,” “Crimes & Mysteries” and “Social Interaction!”

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.
