HUGO means Heuristic Underworld Generated Output. Here’s an example. This product is raw. Terrific, but unpolished. Buy it as a curiosity or for some Barony ideas on extra injuries in combat. I put it up as a record and to archive our copyright claim. If you spend a buck, thanks. It’s worth a buck for the three level adventure inside. Conrad made a dot matrix printer in the late eighties start spitting out underworlds. We hated purely random stuff, so he added a set of conditions to make each level have a quest and produce some logical experience. The original code never made the same levels twice. Thousands of levels of adventures, all unique. That printer gave us lots of material for use with our other favorite role-play game. Way too much. We needed cash back for more paper. So, we started selling three level underworlds at conventions, where the big guys’ lawyers gave us funny looks. We needed something to wrap around the underworld levels, and Conrad made his Q&D mechanics in an afternoon. You can see the core of Conrad’s Fantasy (Barony’s yellow booklet) in there. Just in this fixed form, it’s one archive copy, not a completely different game for each player. Bug him online to move the code to a web page.

The Primitive version of Conrad's Fantasy but a game that can be played with very little prep. New players can learn fast.

Scanned image
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.
