A Cold and Distant Hunger

A Cold and Distant Hunger


It is the year 3058. Around this quiet corner of the galaxy, forces mobilize for war. With whom or for what reason, no one quite knows, but what is certain is that war is coming. In a desperate bid to bolster their defenses before the inevitable onslaught arrives, the Interplanetary Union has dispatched survey teams to half-forgotten battlegrounds and fabled strongholds of ancient humanity. Their hope, to gain access to a mere fraction of the power that once pushed back the entities of the outer dark and made space safe for their descendants. What they will find however is that half-forgotten as they might be, these battlegrounds do not lie silent, and those driven from the light of our stars have grown very hungry in the dark.

A Cold and Distant Hunger is an adventure for the Cypher System. It requires the use of the Cypher System Rulebook from Monte Cook Games to run. Included are six pregenerated characters.

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.
