Bones of Chinatown

Watermarked PDF

In The Bones of Chinatown, the pulp world of the 1930s is in danger! The dread Chinese sorcerer and mastermind Gao Fang is on the verge of obtaining god-like mystical power, the Ruby Eyes of the Lo-Man Tiger. Only a ragtag group of heroes stands between the safety of humanity and Gao Fang’s control over the laws of time and space. But do they have what it takes to traverse through the bowels of San Francisco’s Chinatown and into the very heart of the villain’s lair? Can they stop a Chinese mastermind from holding nigh unlimited power? This serial is not for the faint of heart!

This 9-page adventure utilizes the Savage Worlds rules system and takes place in the gritty pulp world popularized by the likes of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, thus offering a different feel than the standard fantasy dungeon crawl.

Note: The Bones of Chinatown was the second runner up in our Knights of the Dinner Table Adventure Contest, and was originally published in Knights of the Dinner Table #148.

A very good adventure in the pulp hero / crimefighter style that's popular with the Savage Worlds crowd. It's a self-contained adventure, but it would fit in nicely with a series of similar adventures with little to no tweaking (e.g., the Daring Tales [...]

I would think that a major game company like Kenzer could at afford someone to spend 20 minutes correcting obvious typos and bad sentences. I found it hard to get through as I was constantly stumbling over these literary speed bumps. When your words ar [...]

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.
