People mentioned that this had some of Allansia in it, the Allansia book is pretty expensive on ebay so I was wondering what kind of alternative this is, by that I mean how much of Allansia this book incorporates and how much it leaves out?

This has an updated version of the Wilderness creation, travel and encounter rules in it. Some of the bits from Allansia (race creation etc) made it into the core AFF rulebook. The final part of the mini campaign is on my to-do list.
When we recreated AFF, we took bits from all three of the original books and split them up into various new books as required!

Is it possible to just buy the PDF? Several of your products seem to only have PDF+Print as a purchasing option

It should be! After the server migration i had the pdf and print versions merged to make both available for sale, and something seems to have gone wrong. I will get this sorted today. Thanks for letting me know!

Thanks, it's up and working now. I came across my old copy of Titan a little while ago (before they did the scroll work at the top and bottom, so just this big picture of a dragon coming up to the castle as the full cover). Nostalgia hit me good and hard, so I went hunting. Very glad to add this and the Deluxe book to my PDF collection

Where did the cover go on the latest download?

Great book! However, on page 57 / 58 there is text that is missing (cut-off) under the map. Please be so kind as to fix. Thank you.

Has this issue been fixed? I see that the publisher did not reply at all, but maybe they have fixed the issue?

I'd like to buy it, mostly for the wilderness rules, but it's hard to justify buying a book with missing content.

If it helps... I've just checked my current copy (with a new update just this morning, apparently) and I don't see any text/graphic collisions around any of the art or maps on pages 56-59.

This morning's update did, however, remove the front cover :(

I'm seeing the same thing. Additionally, the bookmarks have been removed from the document, making it harder to navigate.

Is this a companion for the 2nd ed. or an earlier, 1st ed.?

This is for 2nd edition. It incorporates some rules and concepts from the original "Allansia" book, although revised and rewritten for the new version.

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.
