Read what others are saying about The Dragon's Gate!

5 out of 5, Superb! "the depth and level of detail provided on the setting itself is outstanding."

"The amount of information in this book is staggering. I don't know how they put that much stuff on 128 pages and kept it easy to read and visually interesting."

"...what system couldn't use a Big Trouble in Little China session or two?"

"...the number of ideas and bits that could be adapted by a GM to his personal campaign is enormous..."
--Hero Games Forum

4 out of 5! " does what it claims to do - presents a living, breathing cityscape that can be incorporated into almost any existing city campaign. There is a lot of gold buried between the covers..."

5 out of 5! "I would recommend this source book for anyone wanting to run games in Chinatown, even if they do not play Hero 5th Edition or other Superhero games."

"Dragon's Gate is a perfect sourcebook for fast action, John Woo style games. Dragon's Gate manages to retain the charm and versatility of the original sourcebook."
--Theala Sildorian

Highly detailed, with a bevy of well-realized NPCs and groups. The "Chinatown" here is a living place, far more than just stats and descriptions; there are potential plots and conflicts everywhere, and plenty of ways for your characters to ge [...]

WOW! This (along with San Angelo) is by far one of the best settings I have ever seen. Rich detail, interesting characters, multi game system stats... This one is worth every penny! [...]

The Dragon's Gate details the Chinatown district of San Angelo. And when they say "details" they mean details - this book is about two thirds the size of the original San Angelo, but it feels like GRG have crammed even more into it. [...]

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.
