The Origin of the Species series of supplements is all about providing options for including non-human races - be they characters or NPCs - in your Spycraft game... but this one takes it to an extreme, providing all that you need to play a 'transmech' [...]

I bought this shortly after I received the email about the release and though I was skeptical, I'm glad I bought it. The rules are quite well done and balanced. The feats do a good job of covering all the bases without eating up too many of your precio [...]

I was quite surprised by the unannounced release of this toolkit. After buying it I must say that it almost completely covers the Transformers, with their sometimes unique technology. Included are feats that allow the creation of combiners, pretenders, [...]

It should first be noted that I am not at all familiar with how Spycraft has been altered since it's d20 roots, or even just Spycraft in general. I bought this product mainly for the NPCs. Only problem with that being: they are all but unusable for nor [...]

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.
