Considering how delayed the print books are becoming could you guys give us a Print on Demand option for your books? It would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

I've purchased a print copy through backerkit on August the 25th. Is the MTG still planned for a September release or has that since changed? Are purchaser's entitled to a discount on the PDF copy here? I know..that probably sounds cheeky, but it doesn't hurt to ask! :)

As with many other gaming companies right now, our print timeline is currently delayed but we're doing our best to stick to our Autumn schedule. We'll be updating backers on the status of print copies once we have more definitive information.

Printing and shipping is a little exciting right now timeline wise, even with American printers there's issues with supplies. We are aiming at early next year

No POD on this one. Just like the other two core books, it will be available from distributors, at local gaming stores, and via online book retailers.

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.
