"The times were lawless and the men who had flouted the King's Revenue forces for years were not the ones to balk at sterner things when duty impelled."
—H.P. Lovecraft "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward"

Colonial Terrors is a Call of Cthulhu campaign taking place in New England just prior to the American Revolution. The investigators are patriot smugglers. In this Age of Enlightenment great progress is made in science, politics, and philosophy. Many, but not all, of the shackles of previous eras are shaken free. This is a land where old gods grow new again.

PURCHASER
The editing errors in this product are an embarrassment to an otherwise neat product. I really enjoy the content, but I have to keep stopping to face-palm stuff like this: "There argument was that the proof of a creator is in the creation not in stories written centuries before of dubious origins." Ugh.

Let me start by stating that I have a BA in English and I specialized in editing.
I sincerely hope the purchased product is much better than the preview. From an editing standpoint, there are numerous spelling errors and editing errors. In the first column of the first page of a 10-page preview, I counted 5 errors:
Present tense used where past tense should have been
"Deep south" instead of "Deep South"
"thru" instead of "through" or better "through out"
Mixing the end of paragraphs - sometimes white space; sometimes not
"scared of by" instead of "scared off by"
If I could find 5 errors that quickly, I am concerned about the editing of this document. If the finished product is updated and all the editing errors fixed, I would definitely purchase this product.

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.
