Thrilling Tales 2e: They Kill By Proxy


An invitation to attend the reading of a will finds the heroes trapped in an isolated mansion, plagued by poisonous traps, and hunted by a sadistic villain operating at the behest of a secret cabal known only as... The Murder Club!

The heroes must follow the trail of the Murder Club as it leads through the streets of New York, the pinnacles of High Society, the very halls of justice... and finally to a showdown with an army of lunatics serving the Murder Club's true master, on a private yacht in international waters.

They Kill By Proxy is an extended three-part adventure in the Weird Menace genre, designed for four to six Seasoned characters, three to four Veteran characters, or a Legendary hero and his assistants. It uses the Savage Worlds rules system, as featured in THRILLING TALES 2nd Edition.

This adventure includes notes on the Weird Menace genre, expanded rules for Booby Traps, Courtroom Drama, and a new pulp character archetype for use in your THRILLING TALES games:  The Crusading Attorney!

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.
