Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

This ongoing publication is your go-to resource for the old-school games Saga of the Splintered Realm, Sentinels of Echo City, and Shards of Tomorrow. Resources for all three of these B/X-inspired games will appear in every issue.

Even if you don’t play these games, the resources herein can be used for any old-school game with minimal tinkering. And, because it’s all released under either a Creative Commons License or the Open Game License, you can take the content and use it anywhere, and anyhow, you want.

This first issue includes new archetypes and a campaign setting for Saga of the Splintered Realm, a cosmic adversary and GM guidelines for Sentinels of Echo City, along with a guide to bounty hunters and stellar random encounters for Shards of Tomorrow.

In the long-standing tradition of comics artists, the cover of this issues is a tribute to the frontpiece to the greatest edition of any game ever published.

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.
