Codex - Home (Issue #44)


This is a delightful issue of the magazine, focused on places we call home, from the bucolic land we're returning to after a great war, to the rooftops of a great city, to our favorite pub we retire to after adventuring. Inside you'll find:

Back Again from the Broken Land, a game by Leah and Alexi Sargeant about returning home after a calamitous war with a dark lord. This is a very special game, one that I think you're going to want to play over and over.

Decorative Gore Season, a new Brindlewood Bay mystery by Jim Crocker. This seasonally-appropriate mystery takes place in a pumpkin patch, and further fleshes out the Brindlewood Bay setting. 

Top of the World, is a Trophy Gold incursion, also by Jim Crocker. In this one, the characters are racing across the rooftops of a great city, and occasionally dipping down to ransack homes and businesses for loot. It's a change of pace for Trophy Gold, more light-hearted and adventurous than grim and desperate. 

Two Dozen Inns & Taverns (and their Signature Fare), a miscellany.

This the the debut of Michael Beachy as the cover artist! Michael's art introduces a bit of whimsy to Volume 5 of Codex.

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.
