Dept. 7 Adv. Class Update: Scion of Masada

Dept. 7 Adv. Class Update: Scion of Masada

ZIP File

During the waning days of the Roman Empire, a small Jewish garrison held off a much larger Roman force, and in the end, when defeat was inevitable, they chose mass suicide to capture and slavery.

The Scions of Masada are a secretive, highly trained and impeccably equipped sect of elite assassins and saboteurs within Israel's feared MOSSAD agency.

The Scion of Masada incorporates martial arts, Zen swordsmanship techniques, counterintelligence and military expertise and ancient magical arts into a seamless whole. All Scions carry deadly bone daggers, undetectable my most conventional weapon detectors as their badges of office, and these blades carry with them the spirit of a long dead hero the Jewish people.

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.
