BattleTech: Sourcebook: The Periphery

Watermarked PDF

The Star Systems on the outskirts of the Inner Sphere make up the area known as the Periphery. For hundreds of years, countless kingdoms and alliances have struggled against each other for survival in the far reaches of known space. Now, in the upheaval ravaging the Inner Sphere, these tiny realms may be the key to changing the balance of power among the Successor States.

In the wake of the Clan invasion a new era of exploration has begun. The intense efforts of the Inner Sphere bring the House Lords ever closer to discovering the Clan homeworlds. And every day of exploration reveals a more powerful, more complex and more exciting Periphery.

The Periphery sourcebook brings events in that area up to date, highlighting the larger and more improtant states in the Periphery and describing their current military forces, their histories, rulers, economies, goals and problems. This sourcebook for  BattleTech also provides game information that includes 'Mechs, vehicles, personal gear and character archetypes unique to campaigns taking place in the Periphery.

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.
