Old School Actual Play Mini-cast #2 (audio product)

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to our third podcast, the 2nd in a series of Mini-casts to keep us all occupied in between our actual play sessions!

In this mini-cast, I'm joined by Benjamin Alberti. Professor, Archaeologist, gamer and co-author of Troll in the Corner's Magical Emporium: Masks of Magic and More! Ben has also helped me out a bit in the editorial department, and has played in my Aruneus Pathfinder campaign.

In this mini-cast Ben and I discuss our gaming origins. We talk a bit about the difference between games that utilize minis and games that do not, buying games out of the the back of cars and the usefulness of hiding players hit points and XP. We discuss the problems of putting your artillery in the front when using historical minis and Car Wars, which has been on my mind for a bit. Ben went into some non-spoiler details about the Haunted Mine (an adventure for Aruneus) and we drank some single malt Scotch.

Also for the first time, I asked for questions on Twitter an hour or so before we recorded, and picked a bunch to answer, which was quite fun! We closed with Total Confusion XXV and talking about a new board game I just release, Mi Gato se Incendia! (My Cat is on Fire!)

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.
