We don’t have plans to release the BESM line as POD, though the print editions are shipping from the factory now and will be available in stores later this summer. You can also order the print edition from our website.

We're sorry to hear that you're having trouble. Here's a link to what DTRPG says about printing files, including ways to contact them for technical issues:

Sorry, but the preview's kind of a turn-off for me in what's otherwise an appealing system. In the end of it there's this big bullet-point list that reads like this for recommended discussion: LGBT stuff, gender identity, sex, gender roles (yes, as *four* separate points), oppression, religion, and politics. Is any of this really necessary beyond a general statement of "talk with your GM/players about what to include or leave out and how to handle any sensitive topics or tropes"? To me it comes off as "the rest of this game is going to be preachy" even though the free intro PDF avoids that entirely. That might not be true, but it's the impression that the preview gives.

Thank you for your feedback. We believe that open and honest discussions amongst the gaming group is the best way to ensure everyone is on the same page, and we have included brief sections to address and encourage this. We hope you'll give it a look.

It is a liability thing. Us oldies don't really care that much, but the medium has stretched into a more sensitive crowd. I'm a 20+ year PnP gamer that was also highly involved in (mostly anime) cosplay--much of the cosplayer demographic is made up of people very sensitive to these issues as is a lot of the newer 'TTRPGs are cool' crowd. And I mean INSANELY sensitive. This is also important because, historically, anime hasn't been very sensitive to these issues (Japan isn't in general).
Don't worry about it; this ain't Farewell to Fear (awful, preachy game). BESM is more of a framework; there really isn't anything to preach on.

Is this just a matter of no art, or is some text removed as well? Thanks.

BESM Naked has an abundance of art included and the text is the same font size as BESM Fourth Edition. Game has been condensed, and some gaming advice/guidance has been removed, but the game is complete.

Our website has a short article talking about the differences between BESM Naked and Fourth Edition:

Thank you. That article was very helpful. This version looks like it’s much more my jam. Less crunched to keep track of. I like.

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.
