I think there's an error in Heler's holy days on page 8. It says "The seasonal holy days are held on the Waterday of different weeks in each season: Disorder Week of Sea Season, Fertility Week of Fire Season, Stasis Week of Earth, Season, Harmony Week of Storm Season, and Movement Week of Storm Season."

Although nothing prevents Heler from having two holy days in Storm Season and none in Dark Season, I think the Harmony Week holy day is intended to be Sacrifice Day, in Dark Season?

Gotta say, very impressed and pleased with how you handled this topic. Seems very appropriate. The myth at the beginning in particular is spot on.

This is absolutely gorgeous, and definitely a handy book for any Runequest player or GM to own.

Fantastic work, art from Katrin is perfect (I would just prefer blue Heler), the cult are awesome (what an Heler cult...) and it's a perfect to understand and roleplayed sexual romance in Orlanthi culture. Enjoy it! You must purchase this ebook.

I feel bad for criticizing a PWYW title, but why do all the images appear at such low-res? For a work in which the artworks are on of its main attractions, it feels bad to not be able to enjoy them at a good resolution.

Your critique was helpful! It turns out I'd managed to make it in low quality formating by mistake. Hopefully this should have updated with higher resolution, my apologies to you, and to everyone else.

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.
