Ace Goodknight: The Case of the Missing Sweetheart/The Case of the Missing Manuscript


Ace Goodknight is the kind of gumshoe that always cracks the case and a few heads along the way!  This pair of adventures provides a set of skirmishes for two players driven by a film noir style plot and requiring some real detective work.  The system uses a (stacked) deck of cards to change the villian and clues every game, but still have deductive reasoning and good fighting give you an advantage scene to scene (as opposed to being completely random).

These scenarios contain:

  • a total of ten system independent skirmish scenarios 
  • paper terrain templates so you can print and play
  • some paper figure stand ins, in case your colleciton of film noir figures is a little light 
  • tailored stats for our free QILS system
  • samples of the worst dialogue and most hackneyed writing you have ever laid eyes on!

*UPDATE!* We now have another Ace Goodknight adventure!  Check it out, too!

Feel free to muck about and provide your insight, critique, and general ramblings about this supplement, QILS in general, and to check out our terrain and mini coversion tips as well as get a peek at what lies on the horizon ...

Scanned image
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.
