I appreciate creative playbooks that don't just copy moves whole cloth from similar playbooks, but if you're going to write new moves you should at least playtest them. Take the Big advantage under Nature's Gifts, for example. It increases the size and number of hit points possessed by individual members of your horde without increasing overall hp, while reducing the size of your horde by 80%, which in turn reduces the effectiveness of your Dispersed starting move by 80%. In other words, a horde of a half-dozen goblins that can be killed with one hit even when wearing armor is not as good as a 30hp horde of unarmored pixies that takes 30 individual swats to kill. It's an "advantage" that brings virtually nothing to the table while ruining one of your main starting moves to boot. So as a means of representing a horde of small-but-not-tiny humanoids (which is what intrigued me in the first place), this playbook still needs some work.

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.
