Boston: The Broken Cradle of Liberty


One of the hottest Hot Spots of North America, Boston was saved from the encroaching seas by a massive civic undertaking, and declared the capital of Atlantica. Now, in the face of riots and acts of terrorism, the American 'Cradle of Liberty' reels under martial law as dissidents protest unpopular decisions in an effort to stoke the flames of rebellion. With soldiers patrolling the streets and violence a way of life, Boston stands poised to either blossom into something greater or be wiped off the map and into oblivion.

Boston: The Broken Cradle of Liberty has everything you need to take your campaign into the highways and byways of Boston. Whether you're a GM who wants to know what's going on in Beantown, or a player who just wants to hail from the area, you'll have everything you need to know to add Boston to your game. So grab your handy Watchdog and a Molotov Cocktail, tomo, and help decide the direction of the new revolution!

• Tons of information about Boston, including neighborhoods, interesting locations and some of the major players of the city.
• New Edges, Hindrances and Occupations to help give your character that Beantown feel, as well as a whole mess of new gear popular to Boston, courtesy of Malmart.
• New rules for city Trappings, to help give locations a unique feel.
• Random gang generation tables!
• Two complete Savage Tales, and a half-dozen plot hooks to get your Boston campaign rolling.
• Stats for the important (and some of the not-so-important) characters in Boston.

This is an expansion for Savage Worlds Interface Zero, and not a stand-alone setting.

The Good: Amazing new layout. The "Declassified" sidebars are hilarious as well as insightful regarding the "ground view" o the city. The new City Trappings mechanic are a top-notch addition. [...]

Interface Zero is a great setting and a fine addition to Savage Worlds, but Boston: Broken Cradle of Liberty is one of the best Savage products I've seen in a long time. The setting is evocotive and B: BCL adds a few handy optional rules to the Fast! [...]

I'm a cyberpunk fan from way back, and this sourcebook is classic cyberpunk. Boston: Broken Cradle of Liberty is a fun, fast read. It's filled with nice plot hooks for a Boston campaign, and has enough local flavor to avoid being a generic near-future [...]

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.
