Valkyrie Quarterly 27

Valkyrie Quarterly 27

ZIP File

Valkyrie is a quarterly British roleplaying magazine based on grass roots roleplaying, to use a clich?: 'by gamers for gamers'. Its content is predominantly scenarios, source material, optional rules etc with fairly minimal industry related content. Valkyrie does however have a good reputation for its honest, no nonsense reviews.

Valkyrie's regulars are 'News From the Trenches' a column on gaming advocacy, (by 'The Escapist's' Bill Walton); Saint's and Sinners: 'Where gaming meets the real world!; 'Soldiers of Fortune, a miniatures review column and Battlelines - a section on SF/fantasy miniatures gaming with, this issue, an introduction to Rackham's 'Confrontation'.

And the popular comic strips: 'Yamara' and 'Thrud the Barbarian'.

In issue 27:

* Preview: A/STATE - Contested Ground Studio's Dickensian SF RPG

* Feature review: Victoriana - Heresy Gaming's Fuzion powered fusion of magic and steampunk

* First Spawn - a complete, free RPG of diabolical Darwinism

* Curse of the Wendigo - a survival scenario for All Flesh Must Be Eaten

* At Home With the Gordons - an in depth look at the personalities in a wealthy Edwardian household

* The Dragons Flames (for Shadowrun) - The elite troubleshooters of corporate mogul, the dragon Lofwyr.

* Stronger Than Steel - official martial arts rules for Victoriana

* News round up of the Summer RPG releases

* 10 pages of reviews

Its very hard to objectively review something like Valkyrie because what might have been good in it for me is useless to you. I bought it primarily for the article on martial arts for Victoriana but I also was very pleased with the article that detaile [...]

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.
