Arsenal Cards Volume4: Short Swords


The sword is an iconic weapon for role-playing games. Whether your game is set in the fantasy world of your imagination, or in the streets of ancient <st1:city><st1:place>Rome</st1:place></st1:city>, do your swords all look alike? What sets one short sword apart from another? Sure, these weapons all do the same amount of damage, but what makes them special? What makes your rogue's short sword different from the one wielded by the elf, or the sword carried by the goblin facing you?

The answer is in Arsenal Cards Volume 4: Short Swords. This is the first in a three-volume set featuring swords of all types. Within this volume you will find 80 unique weapons with a blade length of less than 70 cm. Each blade has a full color picture and a detailed description for the sword. Now you have the chance to find the perfect sword for your character that matches his or her personality.

Original electronic
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.
