d-Infinity Volume #6: The Mythos

From its very beginnings, the idea of the Mythos has pervaded role-playing gaming to one extent or another, overtly influencing innumerable authors, developers, and game masters. At its core, the idea behind the Mythos is that there is a vast body of pre-human — even alien in the most fundamental sense — history, science, and cosmology, that people periodically perceive glimpses of these cosmic horrors, that those who do quickly find ways to rationalize or forget about them, and that those who seek to delve into them suffer madness, death, or fates even worse.

D-Infinity over the last few issues has become a great gaming magazine, and Issue 6 is no exception. Issue 6 covers the Lovecraft Cthulhu Mythos, but in an unusual but spot on way. The fiction piece that starts everything out is a fun rea [...]

This makes for a fascinating read, with everything within this issue in some way connected to the Lovecraft-inspired Mythos. It doesn't matter what you play, unspeakable eldritch horrors with lots of tentacles can sneak in and scare your characters int [...]

Format
Original electronic
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.
