Tales Of The Far WestClick to magnify
Selected Option:




Imagine: A fantasy world, but not one based on Medieval/Dark Ages European culture and myth, but rather on the tropes of the Spaghetti Western and Chinese Wuxia. Add steampunk elements. Mix well.

A fantasy world that mixes the inspirations of Django and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon... The Good, The Bad & The Ugly and House of Flying Daggers... Fistful of Dollars and Fist of Legend.

A fantasy world that's explored through a book series, a constantly-updated website, a tabletop role-playing game, comics, artwork, webseries and much, much, more.

This is FAR WEST.

It's being delivered to kickstarter backers before the end of the year. It will be made commercially available soon afterward.

Where is the RPG? I wound up buying this book TWICE by mistake (once here, once at the official site) trying to get my hands on the RPG.

I am right with you. Ive read about this setting and been really jonesing for it. It sounds like a lot of fun. I put this item on my cart... about ready to purchase it when I noticed all the short story tittles. On closer inspection, I saw it was an anthology. I really wanted it to be the rpg rule system... had to see past what I wanted it to be.

Such a let down. Hopefully with this teaser they will follow up with the actual rule systems so we can really dig into this world. At least with our two replies, no one will accidently purchase this ebook for the rpg part of it. That is still to come... I hope... I hope.

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.
