Eclipse Phase: Wormwood Craters


So it turns out the Wormwood Craters are even less real than we thought ... thanks for enjoying our April 1st 2018 joke! The download contains a 1 page PDF and a raw text file with a bunch of extra generate text, suitable for making mystifying handouts for your players!

In the spirit of transhumanism, we've decided to surrender our jobs to artificial intelligences*. Effective immediately, AIs will finish the work on Eclipse Phase Second Edition! We're very excited to offer the first sample of their work here, the Wormwood Craters. X-Threat? Gatecrashing destination? Word scramble puzzle? We'll figure that out soon!

* On second thought, after reading this submission ... freelancers, check your email, we'll be in touch!

** Text produced by feeding previous Eclipse Phase books through a TensorFlow neural network and letting it bake for a few days. Artwork by Mitch Malloy, repainted by Google's Deep Dream.

Thanks to Talie Jorion for the neural net help!

This is a thing of beauty right here... I laughed so hard a damn near wet myself. Some enterprising soul out there needs to run an adventure based off this masterpiece. [...]

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.
