I notice the PDF was updated a few months ago. What was included in this update?

Are there any plans to provide a "No Background" printer-friendly version of Victims?

The full-size preview has what I *think* may be a pretty glaring error - are there supposed to be two "Chapter 2: Playing The Game" chapters? More importantly, does this error carry over to the full product?

There is an error in one line in the contents page. It doesn't carry on through the rest of the document. No doubt, it will be fixed when SE aren't busy churning out stacks of new material.

The Starter Guide here is perfectly sufficient to create characters and play Shadow of the Demon Lord, assuming you also have a d20 and some d6s lying around, but it's designed as an introduction. If I weren't already addicted to the game, I would splurge on the $19.99 core book PDF. You get everything that's in the Starter Guide and much, much more.

I wouldn't say it's designed as an introduction, it's clearly stated that it's more of a "player's guide". I would certainly like to see a free quick-start for this game though!

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.
