Gamemaster Handbook & Screen


Ada Friedhelm adjusted her eye patch and strained to pay attention. Her interlocutor had insisted on audio-only communication, but it didn't matter. She knew who he was. The artificially warbled male voice went on, at the same time deep and deranged.

"...and as a result the price of titanium is going to rise drastically. Furthermore, I have enlisted the cooperation of Captain Mortimer Haig, a pirate operating from a small asteroid on the orbit of Jupiter, whose task will be to intercept any titanium shipment to Vanguard Mountain. As a result, the shipyards in Vanguard will require some assistance from the Confederation. Thanks to the information you just provided me with, we now know without a doubt that the Valiant has just been refitted after her last trip and she is ready to go. All we need now is to tip the Jovians about the whereabouts of Captain Mortimer's asteroid and they'll leap to the rescue. Meanwhile, CEGA will trace the titanium market manipulation back to Elysée, and..."

Scanned image
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.
