Duelist's Handbook 1st Edition

Watermarked PDF

The crowd was going wild. Thousands of dinars were changing hands and Elise was sweating like crazy.

Her Iguana was running full tilt, weaving back and forth in an effort to escape the Sidewinder's autocannon fire. The other Gear was moving more slowly, keeping its aim steady and sure. Armor-piercing shells ripped into the leg of her machine and red warning lights began dancing in front of her eyes. She ignored them.

Skidding to a stop behind the cover of a makeshift bunker, she waited for her opponent to get a little closer. She was sure he'd be coming in for the kill, circling in tightly to catch her by surprise. Not this time.

She readied her Gear's rifle and ran out of cover. The Sidewinder was much closer, but its pilot had obviously been taken by surprise. He fired wildly, peppering the side of the bunker with rounds, but missing Elise completely. He started to move, but not fast enough.

She turned her Iguana to face him and fired. She saw the smoking hole in his cockpit almost immediately. The Sidewinder stopped for a second and tumbled to the ground in a heep, covering the pilot's corpse.

The crowd loved it.

The Duelist's Handbook brings Heavy Gear players into the ritualized and violent world of Gear dueling. The guardians of regimental honor, the stars of professional sports teams or the vicious gladiators of the underground. Duelists exemplify all the best and worst qualities of Terra Nova. the Handbook examines the duties and lives of military, professional and underground duelists, and features three new Gear models, new weapons, Perks and detailed rules for small scale tactical combat. Seven prominent Duelists are also profiled, and details are provided on the city-state of Khayr ad-Din -- an ideal roleplaying setting for Duelists.

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.
