What do I need to do to publish a hack of SF? I really like it.

Hello Casey, what are your rules for creating supplements or modules for your system? And will you have an SRD. Love the system and would love to create things for it.

I'm interested in the topic of creating a supplement/module/expansion too. Have fallen in love with the simplicity of this system and hacking it has been a lot of fun. Thanks Casey.

I'm on my second one-shot as a player, but haven't read any rules yet. Any chance of this in print? I'd likely buy it, but PDFs aren't useful to me.

Print copies are on Lulu. Hopefully the corporate overlords don't notice me redirecting you to another site!

Is this a roll-under d20 system? I was just wondering because some reviewers mentioned Stay Frosty has similarities with The Black Hack.

I'd call it roll-over. You want low stats and high rolls. Same principle as Black Hack, but reversed.

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.
