Hi, I can't seem to find the download button for this in my library, has it been removed or?

Hi Darko. The file was updated this week, so that may be disrupting the connection in your library to the previous file. I think referring to the product page we're on now and clicking "Click to get it!" under "You Have Purchased This Title" will download the revised file and place that one in your library for future download. If you have any problems, please let me know and I'll try to resolve them for you.

So it looks like when I updated the file something went wrong and it ended up with no file associated with the product. I've uploaded the file and it appears to be working. Please let me know if you run into any difficulties. Thank you Meredith at DriveThru for your help! :)

The download for this came as a zip folder with two files, of which one was very small and seemingly corrupted (unopenable and titled ._wm003.pdf where the real one was wm003.pdf). The real pdf seems to have no issues so not a massive problem, but just a heads up!

I had the same issue. Unsure what the first 1KB file is for or why there is a need for a zip file.

Thank you Joakim and Wee Yong for your messages. It's been a while, but I think when this book was first posted, having it in a zip file was necessary for some reason. That was back in 2007 and things have changed. That extra file you're seeing is likely the resource fork that is part of Mac OS files, but not Windows files. I suspect the zip file is separating that part, which as you noticed isn't really needed.

I'm going to update the file so it's just the PDF without the zip.

Any update on the PoD version?

Hi Bo, thank you for asking. The PoD version is still in the works. The original file was so old that it required extensive rebuilding, which has slowed this down quite a lot.

Does anyone know if there will be a print on demand version of this? There is for the base book & for Variations 2 so it'd be nice to have all 3 available in print.

Hi Matt. There's not currently a print version available, but one will be coming to DriveThru soon. I'm hoping to have it up within a few months.

Hello , I love this system.... any update on the print version of this Mythic Variations book?

Thank you

Hi Stephen, thank you for your kind words, I'm glad you enjoy Mythic :)

I had been focused on completing The Adventure Crafter Deck, which is just about done. Once that's finished, within the next few weeks, then I'm going to get a print version of Mythic Variations on here. I anticipate that happening by the end of November. I can't say exactly when as I will need to get print proof copies and printing and delivery times on those right now are a bit uncertain. However, getting this done is my next priority.

Happy gaming all! :)

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.
