THE SOLAR SYSTEM IS A ROARING MAELSTROM OF DEATH AND WAR

THE INNER PLANETS HAVE BEEN SWEPT AWAY BY THE VIOLENT ONSLAUGHT OF THE DARK LEGION’S MONSTROUS HORDES AND UNDEAD SOLDIERS

IN THE ENORMOUS CITIES OF THE DISTANT FUTURE, HERETICS DEVOTED TO THE DESTRUCTION OF MANKIND STALK THE DARK BACKSTREETS AND GLOOMY ALLEYS, SPREADING THEIR TEACHINGS OF GREED, JEALOUSY, AND WAR.

Mutant Chronicles takes you on a full - throttle diesel-punk ride though a solar system beset by corporate intrigue and the invasion of the Dark Legion. With technology failing due to the insidious effects of the Dark Symmetry, mankind must fight back against the Dark Legion hordes whilst dealing with in-fighting and conspiracy.

Now, in this 3rd Edition of the definitive techno-fantasy roleplaying game, you can play during the early days of the Dark Symmetry, through to the brutal Corporate Wars.

I bought the PDF of Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition, but the Hardcover book would also be a nice addition to own.

Is there still any option to get a discount on the Hardcover if you own the PDF ? If so, how ?

Is another book needed to go with this? If there is please do tell I would like to find the cypher to unlock some of the meaning in this book...seems like an amazing setting.

For anyone who hasn't purchased this, the layout and art look amazing. However, if you're like me and have no prior experience with Mutant Chronicles universe it seems like it was developed with concise acceptance that the reader already has rigorous amount of backstory and game mechanics knowledge coming into it.

One extra thought for you, based on no evidence at all: if you're having trouble uploading the file and the file name has an umlaut over the o in Hölle you might want to take that out.

It is actually there in the download files I've checked so you should be fine.

Quick question, when is the pod coming out? I recently saw a copy on the book for sale,which I also got but remembered I have a coupon.

We're not doing POD only normal printed editions from Modiphius or available in stores
Customer avatar

PURCHASER
Wait, if you aren't doing print on demand through DriveThru then how the crap am I supposed to get the cost of the PDF off my purchase of the hard copy? When I bought the PDF it stated that in November, when the POD comes, I can get my cost of the PDF off of it.

I've just checked the index but I didn't see any chapter regarding Doomtroopers.

Is that argument of future supplement/source book?

They will be in the Cartel Supplement :-)

Hi Riccardo, I own the core rulebook and there's a lot of info on Doomtroopers throughout the book, both in background and some rules, enough to create your own Doomtrooper character. But yeah, knowing Modiphius, the future Cartel supplement is going to be amazing, expanding on what is already available.

Very pleased with this. I'm a old-school MC (1995) fan when Heartbreaker came on the scene with this RPG line. I still have all of my Warzone books which tied into the MC universe/rules-set.

Curious as to how the miniatures will come into play. I'm hopeful there will be a few larger models. I still kick myself from a collectors standpoint of not picking up the Bauhaus Tank model when it came out. Properly painted...it was a thing of beauty.

How does the PDF discount to Hardcover work? I don't see an option for a hardcover, when will that be available?

**Nevermind. It was explained very well upon purchase of the PDF.**

So for anyone curious it states the hardcover option comes November 2015, and if you have the PDF you can have that cost deducted from your copy of the hardcover purchase.

In the PDF files the security settings forbid creating your own bookmarks. As this is an essential function for preparing gaming sessions, not allowing this feature reduces the usability of the PDF version.

Could you please alter the security settings in the PDFs to allow creating user-defined bookmarks?

Franks we're looking in to this will check back asap

The PDF has no security restrictions in place, are you using an old version of acrobat? Maybe try re-installing. We've not done anything to stop you creating bookmarks.
Customer avatar
Frank F September 05, 2015 5:22 pm UTC
PURCHASER
I have tried it with the current Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, the current Foxit Reader and the PDF X-Change Editior - in not one of those readers is the creation of user-defined bookmarks allowed.

The reason for this is, that in the MC3 PDFs in the document's properties under Security the following security setting is activated:
Manage Pages and Bookmarks: Not Allowed.

This is a setting made in the PDF not in the reader software. This security setting deactivates the creation of user-defined bookmarks. Any reader software which evaluates the security settings will therefore not allow setting user-defined bookmarks.

So, it is not a problem with the reader software, but with the security settings of the PDFs.

I have just downloaded all three different PDF files again. In all those files the security settings are the same as before - therefore not allowing to set user-defined bookmarks. Problem is not fixed, yet.
Customer avatar
Chris B September 06, 2015 11:09 pm UTC

I've deleted the old files and re-uploading them so hopefully the security encoding which stopped the bookmarking won't be set now
Customer avatar

Still the same "not allowed" settings in the files.

In the printer-friendly PDF the pages 122 to 131 (the chapter "Combat Basics") still have their colourful non-printer-friendly page backgrounds and frames.

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.
