Forbidden Kingdoms - Master Codex Babbage Edition

Watermarked PDF

The lights in the small office began to dim, then in one fell swoop they extinguished, leaving the duo to be illuminated by the etheric glow of the box they had just opened. The professor raised his head and looked around, not fully comprehending what had just occurred. Beside him his assistant, a perky young woman named Emily, stepped away from the hellish radiance. She clenched her fearful eyes shut and tugged at her mentor’s coat, trying desperately to pull him away.

“The secret of the Universe are MINE!!!� he exclaimed.

Emily tried even harder to wrest his grip from the ornate box they had unearthed, all the while cursing its very existence and wondering of Pandora had ever felt like this.

A great pulp-era game based around d20. It was very different than anything else out at the time and just a really fun read. The art is great and the game rules are a solid re-working of the d20 system to fit that Golden Era after Victoria and before [...]

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.
