I would rate the content 10/10 but the layout could use a little work (not a deal breaker, since content is more important).
Saw your post on Reddit and picked this up, worth every penny. Happy you even included a bonus short adventure as part of it.

Yeah the layout was done by myself and Jason and mostly we worked it out as we went. I’m glad you liked what you saw from a content perspective. I’ve started working with another mate on an Egypt setting, he’s based in Cairo so expecting it to be awesome. We learnt a lot on this one, so it should improve significantly.

I am overjoyed to have this in my collection. I watched your YouTube near end beta and it delivers. Hoping to use this, in part, with Forbidden Lands. You three have been instrumental along with Garblag Games and Three Skulls Tavern in moving me rapidly toward Free League Publishing. Thank you, “ReluctantArtsy”.

DANGIT! Your cover made me think that this was a token pack of top-down mythic Japan tokens. Ah well. Looks pretty cool anyway. :)

Rule System(s)
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.
