Just downloaded this and was getting ready to print it out, when I made two disappointing discoveries. First, the PDF is formatted as two columns of very small print on 8.5 x 11" pages, making it unsuitable to print in booklet format for binding with staples, saddle-stitch style. So I'll have to print the pages full-size, three-hole punch them, and use a binder. Annoying, but livable. Second, virtually every page has a gradiated, gray screen behind the text, massively increasing the amount of ink or toner used in printing. I didn't write this as a negative review, because it's not a criticism of the game or game system--I'll write a game review if and when I've actually read the book and played the game. But the fact that the rulebook PDF hasn't been optimized at all for print-and-play use may delay my doing so, perhaps indefinitely. (I realize that the game was free, so I shouldn't expect too much to be done converting the printed book into a printable PDF, but that gray screen is very dismaying.)

Jeffrey,
That download is a file from 2006. Now that WEG has changed hands in 2016, a new file will be uploaded soon. Give us a bit more time as in the absence of an original file we had to start from this same PDF.

The promptness of this response is amazingly encouraging! I noticed the date on the file after I printed it out (and yes, I did print it out after all), and concluded that what I was looking at was a product that was essentially unsupported for the past decade, which had probably lingered on DriveThru as an essentially historical archive. As I mentioned, I put this in the discussion section, rather than framing it as a review, because I didn't want to harm the game's review rating with comments that were specifically aimed at the PDF formatting.

As I said, I did print it out full-size, and three-hole-punched it for a binder. I find this to be a tremendously inconvenient way to read a book, especially if I'm reading it on a commuter train, but I do want to read the rules. If you are reformatting the book for a new edition, please consider including a printer-friendly version without screen behind the text. If you can use a font in the printer-friendly version large enough that it is legible when printed...See more

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.
