Hazard: Tropical Cyclone!

Hazard: Tropical Cyclone!

Watermarked PDF

The warnings go out long before the disturbance appears, but the scene belies the urgency of the alert: the air is warm, the sky is blue, the winds are light, large puffy clouds float over the beachgoers, and even the seabirds don’t seem too concerned.

A day later, all of that has changed. The air is almost oppressively humid, the sky is taking on a more ominous cast as a wall of clouds seem to gather on the horizon. The wind is picking up and driving ever-increasing wave activity, and the seabirds are suddenly silent and absent. The day after that all hell is about to break loose as the approaching storm brings danger in the form of deadly winds, catastrophic flooding, and even the occasional tornado.

And those who ignored the warnings will soon come to regret doing so.

A tropical cyclone is an atmospheric system characterized by a rapid rotation of air masses around a low-pressure center, strong winds, and spiral bands of thunderstorms producing heavy rains. On Earth, cyclones go by several names, depending on where they occur: hurricane, typhoon, tropical cyclone, or simply cyclone. All describe the same type of storm.

Hazard: Tropical Cyclone! allows the Referee to challenge hir Players with the unstoppable and unpredictable combined wrath of the sea and the sky. This file, though short, is packed with a discussion of how cyclones form, their characteristics, abilities, superlatives, and game stats.

Hazard: Tropical Cyclone! If the wind doesn’t get you, the water will.

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.
