I missed the Kickstarter pdf link and cannot contact the publisher via their Kickstarter of fb page. Is there a way to get a link for me?

The kickstarter video mentioned a player's guide. Has that been incorporated into this Campaign guide? If not, why can't I find the players guide?

Hi Toby,

Yes, it's all one book. Both the Player's Guide and the Campaign Setting are included.

Should the PDF have a cover page? The downloaded PDF goes straight to the credits page and there is no cover. Its not significant to the content but would be nice to have.

Good point, Tim. That's an accident of the print preparation process. I'll get a cover added to the PDF asap!

Daniel H. wrote an excellent and detailed review which I can't reply to directly, because I'm not the publisher. However as I wrote a lot of the crunch (and edited the rest), I'd like to respond to some of his points about the mechanics:

The complaint about the perspective jumping around between Edges is a reasonable one, but I'd like to point out that the Edges in the Savage Worlds core rule book do exactly the same thing. Perhaps it didn't work out so well, but the intent at least was to try and capture the same sort of style/vibe as Pinnacle.

Edge complexity is obviously a matter of personal preference, and Mobile Defense is certainly more complex than most Edges, but I'd argue its complexity is about the same as Florentine (from the core rules), while Berserk (also from the core rules) is even more complex. The Edge itself was designed to fit a thematic niche (evasive defense), and I didn't want to use generic bonuses (such as +2 Soak); I've seen several complaints about other settings...See more

This is some of the best feedback I have ever read to criticism in a review, adding detail and background so that people can make up their mind instead of being simply defensive. Kudos!

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.
