If buying this, do we get the stuff that's also in the Armoury? Or would we need to buy both?

This file has the raw stats and options (ie: base weapon options and templates). While the ARMOURY booklets have pre-stated equipment (base weapons and templates already applied).

isn't this a little expensive for just compiling what's already in the Core rulebook and Protagonist Archive?

Sorry for the late reply.
This PDF was mainly created as a reward for KS Backers (I give it away for cheap during each of my FE Kickstarters).
It compiles all of the option lists for the CRB, AA & PA books, and the price of this PDF will go up with the release of each new FE book (as their content will be added to this PDF).

Could you please give an example what is the difference between this and working from just the corebook? If I want to run a game in a setting of my own devising, do I need this, or should I go for the corebook?

You will want the Core Rule Book as this document has no rules, just stats.

This is a great idea. I wish every system would do this.
That being said, my pdf is lacking in bookmarks and has only three. Could it be possible to fully bookmark this?

At first I thought this was the "ANTAGONIST ARCHIVE 1" mentioned on the Fragged Empire website, but upon closer inspection of the description, it seems like it's some kind of master reference document? Really cool idea, but... does this include the stuff in Antagonist Archive? And are there plans to digitise AA1 anytime soon?

Hi Alex.
Yes this is a master reference document, designed to save people time. It includes all of the extra NPC Traits and Variations from the Antagonist Archive.
The AA PDF will be made available soonish (sorry for not having this available now, I have a distribution agreement).

Aces. I'll just have to wait, AA isn't in your EU physical store either and getting it shipped in from Australia would be more trouble than its worth ;^^ I'll subscribe to your Drivethru alerts newsletter thing in the meantime.

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.
