Referee's Briefing 3: Going Portside


Travellers pass through many starports in their wanderings, and after a while these places can begin to blur into one another. The endless procession of generic bars and hotels, the same shops and tired old décor can be soul-destroying. But it does not have to be like that! Referee’s Briefing 3: Going Portside presents a miscellany of things to do and places to visit that are both interesting and memorable. Not always for the most positive of reasons but then, you can’t have everything…

A tad pricey for the amount of content.

I would recommend this to any Referee who is OK to spend $6 on 15 pages. The cost is really the only weak part of this supplement.

I have found some of these small Briefings to have some great kernels to run with. Picking this one up!

18 total, but only 15 useful. The other three are the cover and the front matter.

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.
