CT-G03a Azhanti High Lightning Original Draft Drawing

Watermarked PDF

Uncovered after years in the GDW game archives, this is original draft drawings for the Frontier Cruiser Azhanti High Lightning, and used as the basis for creating that game and set of deck plans. For scale, it includes side views of the Gazelle class Close Escort, and the Kinunir class Colonial Cruiser. Provided as two files: a 300-DPI JPG (approximately 23.5 x 14 inches), and a PDF reduced to 8.5 x 11.

A really cool freebie, the original sketches from which the later deck plans were done. Not useful in game, but a wonderful peek at the process behind the game. [...]

While it is cool to see the original draft of the AHL, i guess i really wasnt all that impressed with this. I really have never figured out how to actually use this in my adventure yet, but im sure something will come to me someday. [...]

Scanned image
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.
