Many years ago there was only the One Land. One fateful day, Chaos looked down through the clouds and was sickened by its beauty. A world where all creatures were granted purpose to exist and multiply was a appalling sight to him. So he lashed out with all his might. Without warning, the One Land was struck with earthquakes, tornadoes and fires of such magnitude never seen since the Forging millennia before. As ash billowed into the sky and people were sucked into the earth, his children – Honour, Innocence, Balance, Strife and even Patience – came to see what had become of their creation. Shocked by their creator’s homicidal anger they battled Chaos and eventually locked him within the Shard of Hope. The struggle raged in the heart of the One Land and tore it asunder, scarring it with death and destruction from which it would never recover. Amidst this scarred desert, the siblings buried the Shard within a spire of rock now known as Heaven’s Peak and warded it with guardians to ensure the Shard would never break and Chaos would never again roam free. It was here the eldest spirit, Honour, charged a small monastery of humble and dedicated monks with its protection. The Monastery of Divine Hope was built atop Heaven’s Peak, in the arid desert known only as the Wastes. It was here that all of the teachings of the six Spirits – including Chaos – originated. The teachings were spread across the One Land in an effort to guide, encourage and empower the survivors.

Yet such was the intensity of Chaos’ wrath that the One Land was split into man-made boundaries etched in blood on scrolled maps, each ruled by warlords killed and replaced with other warlords over and over for generations. Each rules over their city-states with fists of iron, greed or faith, their people eager to survive in the aftermath of their creator’s wrath, despite the cost. Some have become touched by the radiation of the Wastes and have learned to tap into heights of power never intended for humanity’s reach; some have turned to lesser traits for personal gain. And now something has happened that few have remembered to fear...

The Shard of Hope has cracked.

High Plains Samurai: The Rehearsal Edition is a free public playtest for an upcoming high octane story of wire-fu action in a world of gunslingers, samurai, barbarians, gangsters, and steampunk in a post-apocalyptic wasteland created in the wake of a battle of the gods. These 84 pages contain the complete rules, character creation guidelines, and a playtest scenario involving a train robbery that can only take place in the One Land. Complete surveys and earn playtest points for a chance to gain bonus Kickstarter when HPS turns to crowdfunding later this year.

Told with ScreenPlay, discover what makes this world tick by telling your version of the story to save the One Land from final destruction in the hands of a vengeful bandit leader seeking revenge for innocent blood spilled on sacred lands. Everything you need to experience High Plains Samurai is yours for the taking but the true legend of Black Scorpion will not be revealed until May 2017.

This is a great western samurai setting that goes with a great game system. If you're interested in a psuedo post apocalyptic setting with strong Japanese Western influences, this is the game for you. [...]

Format

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.
