RolemasterBlog Fanzine Issue 43


Welcome to issue 43 of the RolemasterBlog Fanzine.

I am writing this on November 1st, which is All Saints’ Day. The reason we have an all saints day is that in the beginning, each saint had a holy day, where no work was done. As the number of saints days increased, so did the number of holy days. Eventually, something had to give, and the solution was to merge all the minor saints’ holy days into one day. All Saints is really “All the other Saints”.

Tomorrow is All Souls Day, and yesterday was, of course, Hallow’s Eve. Traditionally, people would dress like the saints they venerated and form colorful processions collecting donations from people.

The dates of Hallow’s Eve, All Saints, and All Souls were conveniently placed to coincide with a much older Samhain festival during which the Celts believed that the dead return to earth.

All of this seems like as good an excuse as any to bring our the undead for an adventure or two.

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.
