Cartoforge Puts the Power of Creation In your Hands.

Cartoforge is a revolutionary new tool for Gamemasters, allowing the creation of Adventures whenever and wherever inspiration strikes using a Palm Powered PDA.

Gamemasters can create Adventures on their schedule, fleshing out the details in their spare time. Simply create the adventure scene by scene, then use the included windows desktop software to print maps, create an adventure website, and more. Unlike previous computer based RPG aids, the GM can easily take Cartoforge adventures with them to the game, using the application on their PDA to keep track of the current condition of NPCs & Monsters, make note of significant events, track experience & money awarded to the players and more.

Cartoforge builds upon the success of our introductory product Cartoforge: Dungeons adding additional artwork & features allowing gamemasters to take their adventures beyond mere dungeons. Create worlds of adventure in the palm of your Hand with Cartoforge!

As a really busy adult, paying off a home loan, and married, I have really limitted time to work on putting together adventures. This really helps a lot. If you own a Palm, then this is really the way to go. Sure is a little basic, compared to CC2pro [...]

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.
