Oni, spirit folk, tengu... And she thought the bullies in her gym class were tough. Well, she was tough, too. If these monsters thought they could hurt her and dishonor her hosts, they had another thing coming.

Heroine of Heiankyo is a setting book for the storytelling game Heroine. This book gives players everything they need in order to adapt Heroine to tell stories about a heroic modern girl transported to a mythic, Heian-Era Japan.

On a school field trip to Kyoto, our protagonist finds herself swept back in time to pre-samurai Japan. But this Japan is filled with monsters. Will she make friends and find her way back to her own time?

This  book was written by Andy Kitkowski, with art by Timm Henson and layout by Julio Matos. Editing by Josh Jordan, David A. Hill, and Jeremy Morgan.

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.
