Storyline Book 2: Blood on the Wind

Watermarked PDF

1 Autumn TN 1935 - 2 Summer TN 1939

"When Hutchison died on live trideo, we all knew in our hearts that we were entering hard times. We knew that the last embers of the detente built during and after the War of the Alliance had finally burnt out. Soldiers adjusted their uniforms and arms merchants looked with glee toward a swelling bottom line. Some of us thought of the whole new graveyards this Interpolar War would create.

"We didn't know the half of it. The chaos of those years would strip us, once and for all, of our provincial innocence. Terra Nova was maturing at long last, but at a terrible cost."

- Nicosa Renault

Thor Hutchison, the leader of the Revisionist Church, has just been assassinated. Fifteen cycles of suspicion and tension finally come to a head as the planet of Terra Nova explodes into the Interpolar War. But no one anticipates just how costly this war will be. Mighty armies clash at the poles and throughout the Badlands, reducing peaceful desert communities to smoking ruins. A medical crisis grips the Humanist Alliance while diplomatic betrayal sends the North headlong into conflict. A few heroic individuals try to save what peace they can, fighting to keep parts of the Badlands free. But even their effort may not be enough.

Blood on the Wind, the second Heavy Gear Storyline Book, is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Crisis of Faith. It traces the cataclysmic events on the world of Terra Nova, the setting of Heavy Gear, through a collection of journals, articles and conversations. Master spy Nicosa Renault searches through her mighty records in search of explanations for the world-shaking events, and the reader follows her inquiries. Blood on the Wind also features a useful appendix with a full time-line of events, advice for Heavy Gear players and profiles of important characters.

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.
