Description:

This is Hardened Heroes & Fiendish Foes, a new steam-noir or steam-pulp world of the 1930's. It parallels the real world in thought, but is an adaptation of our own minds. Within this world of steam, gasoline is volatile liquid that is frowned upon as highly explosive. Cars use "steamplug" technology, ships scope water to refill their boilers and aeroplanes harvest clouds for quick refills as well. Think of a world that never went to gasoline, but instead increased their technology level in steam ten-fold. This is the world you will create your character and adventure into. This is a world where Diabolical Maniacs, Mad Doctors, and Underworld Mobsters threaten the very framework of life. If you believe you can fill the shoes of a noir hero, then this steam world is for you.

Powered by the Realistic Advanced Roleplaying Engine (RARE System) used by Broken Swords & Battered Shields, this all-in-one book provides a flexible system and an immersive world that allows Narrators and players to dive in without any extra supplementary books.  Combat utilizes a BattleBoard and has optional cards to enhance gameplay.  These are included in the download in digital format for print in any way you desire.  Sample adventure also included.

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.
