Humans have a tendency to make mistakes, sometimes ones that have far-reaching and unforeseen effects. In our history we have wiped out entire species, transported exotic animals to places they really do not belong, accidently spread disease across the globe, and created technologies that we can barely control. In the future, this trend will continue, for it is human to err, especially when doing so with the best of intentions. What humans do, one can expect other sapient species have also done in the vastness of explored space. 

This publication contains three iconically creepy and dangerous alien lifeforms that can be inserted into any OGL games. On the one hand they are commentaries, as good sci-fi often is, on the dangers of technology either run amok or casually handled. On the other hand they are nasty critters that will happily eat your face off and are thus perfect fodder for games of suspense and terror. 

First is the Balthusian Bilge Rat, a hazardous xenomorphic leftover from a pre-human star-faring civilization, that assumes three successively more dangerous forms throughout its lifespan. 

Second is the Donner Virus, a dangerous viral infection that drives its victims to suicidal Violence, and for which we have included both a sample victim and a template that can be used to create custom monsters. 

Third is the predatory Hunter, an artificial lifeform created by an ancient race and placed throughout their long dead worlds-spanning civilization to guard important sites and to track intruders until it has killed them all.

Skirmisher Publishing has released a preview of the revised, expanded, and updated "Platinum Edition" of its popular and bestselling City Builder: A Guide to Designing Communities, for which it is currently running a Kickstarter campaign!

With the Platinum Edition of City Builder we have created a dramatically improved version of the original book and upgraded it in every way possible to make it more user-friendly, enjoyable to read, and visually appealing. This new edition of our most popular title is now an even more essential asset to storytellers creating villages, towns, cities, and other sorts of communities for ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, and fantasy settings. We sincerely believe that the Platinum Edition of City Builder has a place on every game master’s bookshelf and have made every effort for them to want it to be. And if we exceed our basic funding goals for this project there is even more we will do with it!

Format
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.
