“For sixteen years, I’ve been a cop. For sixteen years, I’ve been living in dirt and take it from me… some of it’s bound to run off on you. You get to hate people; everyone you meet.” –– Shield for Murder (1954)

The Big Crime is a roleplaying game that faithfully and meticulously emulates the bleak, shadow-drenched crime thrillers of the 1940s and ‘50s – Out of the Past, The Asphalt Jungle, Double Indemnity, The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep and hundreds more! Every aspect of the game was designed to evoke the pessimistic, desperate tone of these films!

• Extensive information about film noir, so that even those unfamiliar with these movies will be able to get in on the fun right away!

• A game system that plays fast and “feels” like the source material in every way imaginable!

• Rules for Temptation that immerse players in the world of film noir!

• A quick-and-dirty character creation system that is neither random, nor points-based.

• Advice for players, aimed at helping them embrace the genre!

• Advice for the Director, including details about integrating cinematography to enhance the authenticity of the games he runs!

Search By Night, an exciting ready-to-play adventure for you and your group to enjoy, available in two different versions: the Theatrical Release andthe Director's Cut!

Format

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.
