The Excellent Prismatic Spray 6

The Excellent Prismatic Spray 6


This issue features an article on Vancean magic by Arcana Unearthed author Monte Cook; a d20 conversion of Dying Earth rules by Keith Baker, creator of the Eberron campaign setting. XPS 6 also includes adventures, new weapons, cults of the Dying Earth and much more.

XPS 6 Spread

We present a vision of fantasy, doom-laden and beautiful, violent, alien and treacherous. At this level the essential elements are an opportunity for bloodshed and a sense of horror as one searches ruined wonders for lost knowledge.We combine this with contributions from persons of such eminence as Monte Cook, Mark Ricketts and Keith Baker, the latter with a d20 article. While it is their first appearance in XPS, their calibre is well known to all within the hobby and we are glad to have access to their wit and experience. Yet in the same edition we welcome someone who is making his first appearance in print, Greg Saunders.

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.
