Hi there appears to be option to buy the PDF version of the book. The only option seems to be the PDF and the softcover version. Is this a glitch or is the PDF version now only available with the softcover?

Hi, It is a glitch, rather annoyingly in the sale! I reported it to the publisher team and it did seem to be fixed, but has now reoccurred. It has been reported again, and i will chase it up today. Sorry about this!

In this book you have a very interesting city, described in fair detail, with lots of possible backstories, where you can have ages of city adventures.
Nice and easy!

Is there an adventure to run in this book or just background?

With the information available and the many adventure hooks, it is possible (and easy) running a sandbox adventure in the city of Port Blacksand.

I can't review this because I am a publisher...

But I can confirm that the material here is painted in loose brush strokes that allow a GM to improvise and yet are sufficiently well described to inspire creativity. It is a gentle touch and one that I appreciate.

The bulk of the city fits in about 50 of the pages with the remainder going to history, multiple tables / systems, and other background info. It generic enough to be usable with any system - I intend to run it with Castles and Crusades on Fantasy Grounds and it will not take long to migrate.

I would recommend getting the city map as well - it is easier on the eyes. The map is a bit spartan, but gets the job done nicely.

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.
