As an addendum to my review - the revised edition adds a paragraph of description for each system, well written and with some nice ideas that really adds the colour that was missing from the original product (I really like your idea for Nibiru). In addition there's a summary table at the end of the product listing each world, it's stats and a one-line description, adding further flavour.

This is still not a full-fledged setting product, like for example Lucanii Drift, but at the price it wouldn't be fair to expect that. But it is now useful for a GM looking for an initial starting point to expand and improvise on. I'd maybe rate this at four stars now, with the sole caveat to potential buyers that as long as they understand it is a barebones seed that you'll need to spend time fleshing out, there's enough here now to justify the asking price.

And big respect to Luminous Designs for taking on board my original negative review and responding in such a positive and professional way. ...See more

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.
