The two samurai stared at each other.
Once they were friends. Brothers. But time has come for honor to be regained, and vengeance to be unleashed.
Footing adjusted. Grips tightened. Eyes narrowed.
A single moment and it was over.

“Tobie Abad’s A Single Moment cuts deeper than the blade your character points at his enemy. The experience is drawn out of you from recesses that you didn’t know existed via the invisible game system. In just a few hours you will have shared a deep and enduring tale with a good friend that all comes down to, a single moment.”

"This is an interesting, well-edited two-phase story game. I would gladly play it. Heck, I would gladly publish it.  In particular, I like the advice and explanations hiding inside the rules text. I also like the suggestions at the end for hacking the setting. I want to play the space opera hack with my friend the Stars Wars fan."

"A Single Moment is a masterpiece. An RPG for two players, A Single Moment stands apart in a crowd of indie games due to the brilliant design behind it.

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.
