Guide to the City State (1976)

Watermarked PDF
$5.99

From our glorious first year, 1976, this is the original Guide to the City State. All 54 pages have here been scanned from Bob Bledsaw's own in-house copy (some cleaning of minor coffee-stains was required) but she is good as gold! Out of print for over 30 years, this was the foundation of what later became a benchmark of fantasy role-playing, and our best-seller, City State of the Invincible Overlord! Enjoy this piece of gaming history, with artwork by Bob Bledsaw (the Makistikator himself).

Guide to the City State is classic Judges Guild. There are literally thousands of adventure hooks buried in the descriptions, and left for the individual judge to do what he wants with them. Enough detail to get you started, without bogging you [...]

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.
