Strike Force 1988 Original Edition

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$10.00

This is the original 1988 version of Strike Force: a real piece of gaming history! In 1988, Aaron Allston and Hero Games released Strike Force, a supplement detailing the first eight years of his superhero campaign. Noted for its extensive and highly-influential advice to gamemasters on how to run a long-term campaign, Strike Force is a landmark RPG publication: part campaign sourcebook, part GM guide, and all awesome!

This original version is 98 pages and for the good old Hero System 3rd Edition. The zip file you are downloading includes the original PDF, the cover, three manuscript versions of the original text: .doc, .rtf, and an ancient .wpd file! (That would be a Word Perfect file for those of you under 30!  It opened in my copy of OpenOffice without any problems. So maybe it will for you too.)

Additionally, thoughtful fan Scott Baker, realizing the original 1988 file was a scan, ran it through OCR to create a searchable PDF using automated processing. (Neither he nor High Rock Press are planning to manually edit the results.)

Any chance of Aaron Allston's Lands of Mystery being released in this fashion?

After purchasing this product, am I allowed to print this at Kinkos? Do I need a letter from the publisher which grants me that right? Thanks!

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.
