"manifold equipment" doesn't present the proper tense. Additionally, since it is in common use to designate specific TYPES of equipment related to various mechanical fields.. it's a very poor choice of words in this instance. "Various" would have been the obvious choice.

I really can't condone buying a dictionary from someone using unnecessary alliterations where it infringes on clarity. The POINT of communication is to convey meaning. If you're obscuring meaning with poor or imprecise word choices.. you're not communicating, you're just using big words.

I think that this IS a niche that needs to be filled in the RPG community. I wouldn't have been browsing this selection if I wasn't interested in it. I'm just not so sure that I can trust this source after reading that.

Dude! It's a product intended for creativity and inspiration, not a canonistic religious text to be over by perfectionist AR editors. I have a hard copy gifted to me from a friend (I have the thesaurus as well) and found both to be incredible works providing a wealth of reference material for writing and gaming. I am sure one such as you will find my grammar and choice of words offensive in some small manner, which honestly amuses me greatly. Therefore, I wish you the best of luck finding understanding friends and life-partners willing to put up with your Karenesque persnicketiness. In the same vein, I simply cannot condone spending anymore time on this rebuttal as I doubt I can trust the comments of such narcissism.

WOW. You made my eyes roll so hard, it hurt.

Narcissism.. really?? Way to rubber stamp yourself.. dude. :D

I presented a valid concern. You made a personal attack presented with nihilism and stereotypical ignorance, rendering your opinion utterly without value.

Well done.

Yeah.. I browsed the preview documents. This isn't even a Dictionary. This is a Typological Encyclopedia. These are generally guarded jealously within their respective industries as resources without peer, far superior to the limitations of base dictionary definitions.

It's a bit astounding really, that somebody could recreate one without knowing what it was.

Wait...you are right. I understand now..."It's a bit astounding really, that somebody could recreate one without knowing what it was." Kinda like your prejudiced product sample analysis.

Let me guess.. you looked up the definition for the word prejudice.. using this.. "dictionary"? :D

Look.. I don't know what your problem is, Lee. Don't care. I made a valid point. Kindly go practice your anti-fascist fascism somewhere else, m'kay?

Hi Rachael -- That book only comes in 6x9 at present. We might consider another size however, with the next printing. Thanks for the inquiry! ~ Tim

Any plans to do a scifi version of the Thesaurus and Dictionary? That is the genre I am really interested in. Thank you, Lee.

Hi Andy! Glad you liked the Thesaurus! I've increased the preview to page 20, which should give you a good idea of the layout. Thanks for the suggestion! Tim

Thanks, Tim. I like what I see. I will definitely pick one up when I get paid. I only alot myself so much for rpg books... but seems worth it.

Just to make sure, it does fill in things to the modern age, right? Or since your company seems to focus on Castles & Crusades, does it only cover to the medieval age? I think you offer the whole enchalada.

Cant wait to get my own copy.

Andy -- Yes, it does go up to the modern age with most, if not all things that would normally go to the modern age. Hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any more questions! Tim

Format
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.
