For the past few days I have soloed my way through Shadowrun Quick Start Rules Free RPG Day 2012. It is available for free at DriveThruRPG. There are 18 pages of rules, but it really does not contain everything you need. I used Black Hack to play it an [...]

Good primer to see basic mechanics of the game and possibly determine if it may be something that interests you and your gaming group. [...]

I'm an experienced Shadowrun GM who used this as a one-shot introduction for new players to the game. I would normally use Food Fight, but this was a great change and it gave me allowed me to segue into a modified On the Run campaign mission for my new [...]

This particular product was well scanned and a great concise resource as it related to what it was advertised as. Definetly a good investment for those who are looking for an introduction to the Shadowrun world. [...]

Bottom line up front: It is a shame that an otherwise good looking product should be marred by such horrible inattention to detail. Pretty much unusable by anyone that doesn't have the actual core rules. Great production values and great art. I [...]

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.
