Defense of Antioch: The Seljuk Turks are trying to push the Norman crusaders out of the Principality of Antioch. Casualties have been high, the many graves surrounding the church attest to that. The remaining Norman crusaders watch over the church from the bell tower. The Norman crusaders have spotted an army of Seljuk Turks coming to attack their church. Players can take the role of the Norman crusaders and priests defending the church or they can play as the Seljuk Turks trying to overcome their defenses and push them out of their land.

Historical background:

Norman culture began when Vikings were ceded the land of Normandy by France. These Vikings adapted by incorporating the local Romance languages and Romanesque architecture as well as converting to Christianity. Norman Churches were copied from original Frank designs. 

Norman Church has several examples of Norman Romanesque architecture characterized by features like high arched doorways and a fortified tower for defense of the church. 

Norman churches were most commonly found in the United Kingdom, eastern Ireland, northern France, southern Italy and Sicily, Malta, Cyprus, and the Principality of Antioch (This area is part of Turkey and Syria in the present) during the Crusades (The height of Norman influence was 1000-1100 A.D. The culture became Anglo-Norman after their conquest of England before finally becoming subsumed as part of the English culture as their culture mixed with their Anglo-Saxon subjects.) Churches in Italy often incorporated more Islamic, Lombard, and Byzantine architecture giving rise to a Sicilian Romanesque style of architecture. Most surviving Norman churches in modern times are in the United Kingdom.

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.
