Hi Todd, great job on this and I really enjoy the fleshing out of Nia and the other nations.

Just an editing glitch I noticed...
Can you look at the appendix > Character Creation (page 86-88)?? The bottom of each of the pages.

page 86... Bachra Then nothing until the next page.
Page 87... Harkilon Then nothing until the next page.
page 88... Kharhoun is in the footer and you cant see it well.. and should be at the head of the next column.

adding a blank line or two before Bachra would push these down to actually be at the head of the sections they should be on..

Aside from the Cover graphic and some of the interior art, what is different in this second printing?

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.
