COG System: [v0.8] The New Epoch uses our own COG System. This requires only twenty-sided dice to play and is both flexible and tactical to suit the needs of different players. It's fast and fun, but gives you the options to slow things down for detail. When the system is established, it will become a new category of products on this website. Until then, it must be listed with other d20 systems.

I have read a couple of other reviews on The New Epoch and decided to throw in my two cents. I agree with some of what has been said but wish to present a different perspective on things. First off, it should be remembered that this is a new product by [...]

Well first Steampunk is the best new genre out there, there is nothing like mixing up fanticy with a few projectile weapons, and this seems to have all the coolest aspects of it. The Art of the equipment is amazing its so detailed I just want to pick [...]

The Good: Gorgeous book, some great ideas, a ton of potential. The Bad: Borrows heavily from a certain famous fantasy, the d20 indicia is misleading as it is not the d20 system one tends to think of. For a full review, visit: [...]

Wow. I liked the first version of this, and wrote a huge rant. This version is more concise, and the gripes I had have been more or less resolved. Everything is better, in my opinion. It's probably the best d20 system I've seen, and much [...]

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.
