Hi! What's the print price for the print versions? It appears as PWYW, and that's obviously an error.

Please let us know, we're Christmas Shopping!!

I have perhaps a dumb question about starships. The Modifications listed with each stat block, are they already figured in? So that if something says 'Improved Shields' its already listed above? Or is it a list of customizations which are optional and if taken change the statistics? I appreciate any light anyone can shed on this.

Thanks.

I would prefer a full size book instead of digest size. Can I get it?

So, ah, the Interactive sheet doesn't appear to be interactive at all.

If you enter a low number into the box, it'll show you the minimum. Hardcover is a minimum of $9.08, Softcover is a minimum of $3.47

So yeah, there you go. More than that :D

Perhaps a 15ft or 20ft blast radius would be better?

p35/36 (missile weapons): frag grenade: blast radius 50ft.
The range is 30ft.
If so, does that put the thrower 20ft within the radius?

The "Interactive" PDF won't allow me to fill it in in Adobe Acrobat Pro. I thought maybe I was just doing something wrong so I tried editing instead of just filling the doc and then it asked for password so I couldn't even just add my own spaces to be able to fill it.

I'm thinking about grabbing this... I already own and ran a campaign using S&W Complete, which has since became my go-to fantasy RPG. My question is: how much does the rule set differ from Complete? Is it just the same, are there many changes concerning the transition from fantasy to sci-fi? Pardon the noob question, by the way. :D

Do I need any other rule sets other than this one? Or do I need to purchase a rule set for Swords & Wizardry? Thanks.

PURCHASER
Nope! All you need to play and run this game is within this slim little volume! It even includes a selection of enemies/monsters, a sample campaign setting, and a starter adventure.

If you do want to get the Swords & Wizardry WhiteBox rules, though, they are completely free!

I love this game and (most) the the third party support material. Isn't there supposed to be a companion volume due out?(anyone?anyone?) I would also like to see some more short adventure pdfs, I imagine there are things in the works considering how well this game has sold since its release.

A companion is in the works and several third party publishers are already releasing some wonderful products for White Star.

I'd noticed a typo in the previous update that is still in the "final" version. On page 45 in the "House Rule: Death" sidebar, the last line of the first paragraph reads, "...they reach some PER-determined negative number" [emphasis mine]. I'm guessing that's supposed to read, "PRE-determined negative number."

"An updated version of this title is now available. A single tiny change is made in the Optional Rules section regarding Death. Literally 'predetermined' has been changed from its errored listing of 'perdetermined.'"

Sorry, guys, wasn't trying to be a pain. I just thought you would legitimately want to know if your product had typos before it was sent to press.

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.
