Very nice work, well done! I found the writing to be precise and it brings across the abstract (not genre-specific) mechanics and ideas well. Took me about 10 minutes to read through the character creation and set up my first character. T [...]

I'm a huge fan of universal rulesets and after reading Forthright, it may be my new favorite over FATE, Cypher, and even Savage Worlds. Lots of interesting and elegant mechanics. Huge kudos to these guys for releasing a free version; that takes class [...]

Merges the ideas from Fate and the usual number-dice mechanics, low crunch. However the writing is quite bland, reads more like a college thesis than a game book. On the other hand it has a lot of good advice on plot building, it could be a good resour [...]

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.
