That's great! It really gives a lot of new options and play for the Warriors game. I'll definitely be using it for hex crawls or to inspire ones I'll make.

I don't want to detract from people's enthusiasm because this is a nice supplement. However, based on the preview, I ended up buying the PDF instead. The layout looked much better in the 2015 version, so that was a disappointment. I also liked the 2015 versions of the Terran and Robot better. What I did like was the added mutations table, psionic battle rules, and the addition of the Vaults of Illumination. I may just end up making my own fan version and print it myself at home...

I've given the game supplement a lot of careful thought, and ended up ordering the print edition. I added a review (largely positive).

Yes thats the plan. I'm waiting for the print proof to make sure that it turned out as intended. It shouldn't be very long.

For those who like myself, are familar with the previous iteration of the material, this might be useful:

"Several years ago I made a sword and planet style setting called Xuhlan on this blog. Now I’ve expanded that material and rewritten it for use with the excellent Warriors of the Red Planet rules system. The cool art was made by FSF-Ink."

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.
