How do I print this without the background?

Charts are useful, but the art for the player-facing side was not well thought out at all. Random tables are pretty good to get the ideas going.

Seriously. Why would they make an unprintable PDF of a GM screen? How do I print this?

I tried doing it by using the edit tool to take screenshots, and that might make the back usable, but the front will look like garbage. You basically have to split Conan's name in half. Very poorly designed for the PDF format.

That should be fixed now but if not let us know - the file was updated and you should have received a mail confirming it.

How do we print this thing? I expected the pdf to be one-page-per-panel, instead it appears to be just one giant wide-aspect page.

The back PDF has been updated to now print as 4 Portrait pages. The front has not been updated, but it's just a copy of the main rule book cover. Nothing exciting or useful. I won't bother printing it anyway. I'll probably just find a decent Hyboria map and use that as one of the front panels.

Unfortunately, like most GMs I know, I use a landscape GM screen, so I've had to print the back as two portrait pages to a landscape sheet. This brings it just to the edge of legibility. Haven't used it in play yet, but so far not impressed with the screen or the verbose "GM's supplement."

For ten bucks I'd hope to get both a landscape and portrait version of the screen and a few more utility printouts like the Mob tracking sheet. Maybe even most of the bestiary on an easy to read monster card format.

Used it in play last night. Screen is handy, as it collects the charts scattered throughout the main rulebook. Major omission is a summary of the weapon qualities (e.g. vicious) and character conditions (e.g. staggered.)
Printed at two portrait pages per landscape sheet it is very hard to read.I will probably just reprint and chop it up with scissors to make it into three full size landscape sheets. You could do this by printing out select pages from the core book as well.

Overall disappointed with this product.

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.
