Small mistake on page 20, rumor 4. The necromancer's name is Mawn Pretagorus, rather than Mawn Pretoragus. (at least according to the Titannica wiki).

The page before the Sorcery Spell Cards says "A digital copy is included with the magazine." Is that supposed to be a separate file? Because it wasn't in the downloads I got.

I will get on to that. I noticed some of the previous issues didn't have the cards as a separate file either! Look out for an update soon.

I'm guessing the three issues thing is meant to be for 2022?

Looks cool, gonna buy as soon as softcover releases.

No, 2021 only had three issues, not four. Moving house scuppered me!

I've sent Graham (Arion Games) the POD files so now it's a matter of uploading + ordering the proof file + authorising the release.

Thanks for your custom :)

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.
