In The Strange, characters frequently change as they travel from recursion to recursion. A Stealthy vector who is Licensed to Carry on Earth might become, through the process of translation to a fantasy-like recursion such as Ardeyn, a Stealthy vector who Slays Dragons. Or a Stealthy vector who Integrates Weaponry in a recursion where mad science is a natural law.

But what if your character isn't from Earth? What if she came here from one of those recursions—or what if your campaign is set in Earth's shoals, in places where the characters don't even know Earth exists? What if you just want even more flexibility in how characters translate in your campaign?

Alternate Origins introduces 15 new descriptors for characters not from Earth. A Vampire vector who is Licensed to Carry? A Halfling or a Grey spinner? How about a Rebel, or a Mutant paradox? New worlds of choices open up to your characters when they have Alternate Origins!

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.
