Spark to Powder moves the Chronicle System's technological "slider" a little bit further up the timeline, to what might be termed the Gunpowder Age. This PDF book presents equipment and Benefits that reflect the advent of gunpowder and firearms technologies, but also examines some of its ramifications on a House’s Holdings and its Warfare Units as well.

The Black Powder chapter examines some of the cultural impact of blackpowder, as well as giving a brief overview of how the stuff is made and the kinds of benefits that came to those who learned to make it reliably.

Weapons of Smoke and Flame presents blackpowder weaponry and other equipment changes spurred by its introduction.

Musketeers & Cannoneers examines a variety of Qualities for those who are skilled with rearms, and Drawbacks for those who may have run afoul of them. It also examines the new Warfare Units (and changes to old ones) that come about as part of the Gunpowder Age’s changes.

Finally, Lands of Smoke and Flame provides a variety of changes to the Wealth Holdings from the Chronicle Systems’ Out of Strife, Prosperity supplement to reflect the kinds of opportunities for wealth and power provided by this burgeoning new industry. Additionally, it also presents a system for including Improvements to Defensive Holdings, reflecting the kinds of changes that the existence of cannon necessitated on defensive architecture.

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.
