Hazard: Tsunami!

Hazard: Tsunami!

Watermarked PDF

A sunny day at the beach: warm water, endless blue sky, boundless waves. Suddenly, the ocean seems to flee from the land, pulling back farther out than any low tide. Then it appears out on the horizon: a dark line that seems to thicken as it comes closer. Soon it resolves into a horrible wall of water 7 meters high, racing at unfathomable speed toward suddenly-panicked onlookers. But running is useless…by the time they saw it, it was already too late.

A tsunami (from the Japanese meaning “harbor wave”) is a series of giant waves caused by an event that suddenly displaces a large-scale amount of water. Also informally called“tidal waves” (a misleading term, since they have nothing to do with tides), tsunamis can occur in any substantial body of water, including inland seas, large lakes, bays, sounds, and harbors. They differ from normal wind-generated waves in their genesis and structure.

Spawned by anything that displaces a lot of water at once, tsunamis can race across an ocean with incredible speed, leaving little trace of their passing to ship crews. But upon reaching the shore, they become an unstoppable wall of death and destruction. Few land-dwelling creatures can withstand the wrath of the very ocean turned against them.

Hazard: Tsunami! allows the Referee to challenge hir Players with this unstoppable, unpredictable, invulnerable enemy. This short file is packed with a short discussion of how tsunamis form, their characteristics, and game stats.

Hazard: Tsunami! Don’t get swept away.

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.
