Like all the others I received discount codes for, so far, no images in the download.

Hey John,

Not sure what the issue is. All titles in the line have images / maps in the PDFs. I have run into an issue with a rulebook I bought here a few years ago where images were not displaying properly but updating the software I was using to view the PDF corrected this for me. Sorry I didn't notice this comment until today. Could you tell me what software you are using, if you are still experiencing it, and the platform? Would love to eliminate any issues for other buyers.

From the sample, it looks like this one uses the C&C rules...which is not that hard to use with 1e (which I what I run) but does have variable hit dice for monsters, like some have 2d4 for hit dice instead of just 2 HD

Also this one (and Hide in Plain Sight) don't seem to have other flavors

The Ballista line is compatible with Swords & Wizardry, Castles & Crusades, and other old school fantasy roleplaying games. The simplified stat blocks have both ascending and descending Armor Class values. Naturally, if you don't like variable hitdice, you can always take drop the hit dice type and just use the number. The C&C and S&W versions previously available for some of these titles are older versions of these titles. Morfurt and Hide in Plain Sight are our latest releases in the line.

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.
