I just wanted to say, thank you for all the free content you've given the hobby, especially your podcast! Even if you never have the time to update, you've left a fine legacy. And if you do dip back in, what a blessing!

Thank you so much for your kind message. I've been thinking about starting up the podcast again. While the zine is much harder to produce in my current work/life balance, I am starting to think there might be space for some quick podcasting.

That would be a great treat, to check your rss feed and find a fresh podcast. I listen to them multiple times and find new things all the time. Thanks for your response.

I have *just* started a Dungeon World game and have set it in OD&D's Grand Duchy of Karameikos. With this issue I suddenly have a MUCH cooler and more terrifying 'Black Eagle' Baron Von Hendricks to stand as an impending doom. Thanks for some excellent work. (Referred here by "Discern Realities" #43).

I'm sorry I took so long to reply. Thank you very much! I'd love to hear how your game went. Isn't Discern Realities the best?

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.
