Gamemaster Guide and Screen 2nd Edition

The seemingly deserted hangar suddenly came to life, but Joe Gear was ready. From his right, where Rover Jaxon had disappeared, half a dozen black-clad SRID agents sprang into action, leaping from crate to crate, guns blazing for a second before they ducked behind steel containers. Bullets ricocheted off heavy pipes and bounced off Joe's armor while he lifted his heavy assault rifles - one in each hand - towards the killers. No need for cover, he was the hero, the man of the hour, the epitome of virility! He pulled the triggers, gritting his teeth and frowning angrily at those annoying swats. His rifles vomited streams of hot lead through flaming nozzles. A bead of sweat trickled around his brow, then down his chiseled chin. This was good, very good! His targets were being mowed down like hapless hoppers, clutching dramatically at their wounds or somersaulting backwards before dying on the floor. Joe Gear let out an angry bellow as the last of the Southern agent died a gruesome death. He lifted his guns up, striking a heroic pose. Some smoke gently spiraled up from the overheated barrels, the peaceful moment contrasting sharply with the previous scene. Joe knew his prey had had enough time to escape.

"You can run for now, Rover Jaxon!" Gear shouted. "I'll come back..."

"CUT! CUT!" Phil Bull cried over the megaphone. Suddenly, the filming crew froze and Joe Gear once more became Piotr Wellet, mild-mannered action movie actor. Bull strode angrily towards the actor, waving think ream of paper - the Script.

"It's 'I'll be back', Piotr, not 'I'll come back!"

Normally, I'd give this 5/5, but, I've decided to give it 3/5 for ONE reason: SCAN QUALITY. Whereas the colour maps are quite good (to a degree); the black & white pages are POORLY scanned. They seem somewhat faint (especially the text). Don't get [...]

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.
