In its area of space, the interstellar government has found evidence of at least one society that rose and vanished into the mists of history long before humanity established its current reign. These Precursors were highly advanced; one of their projects involved taking raw animal stock and uplifting it to sapience. One of these races, the Sk’uk’uruk, was derived from suid (pigs and boars) stock transplanted from Terra. As with anything else the precursors did, their reasons for doing so remain a mystery.

Sk’uk’uruk are highly individualistic and competitive, wary of strangers (especially offworlders) and conservative with an almost overpowering desire for order. They speak bluntly to the point of rudeness, and are driven to improve themselves. They can also be quite stubborn, harboring a belief that once an action is initiated, it must be seen through to the end. They engage in violence only with good reason, but can be dangerous if that reason is sufficient to provoke them.

Lifeform Reading: Sk’uk’uruk is for 2D6 science fiction games such as Cepheus Engine and The Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game, although it’s usable with other systems with a little work.

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.
