Looking at the kickstarter for #2*, I don't see any of the content of 1.5. I thought 1.5 was a preview of the content of #2. Wasn't that the plan?

Making 1.5 the preview was the initial plan. But issue 2 is 72 pages as is, without the 1.5 content (52 pages) in it. I wanted to be able to have a staplebound zine so I separated them. I was also concerned that people who got 1.5, would feel like they weren’t getting the full value of 2 (if 1.5 was included)

That said! We have physicals of 1.5 here now.

Content wise though, issue 2 adds door magic (which is related to the elevator god), it adds full information on the elevator cults (they’re only stubbed out in 1.5), and it adds demons that worship Acceptance.

So the tl;dr is they are separate books. And 2 builds on 1.5.

We are currently in process of writing it and have several new classes, new bestiary entries, new patron spells, new spells in general, and new equipment upgrades and mods. We're also waiting for all our art requests to be completed, and see what's still missing! So I would say that it's in full production as we speak. We're hoping to have more information by year's end!

In the meantime 1.5 allows you to rain down elevator meteor showers on your foes, and allows your wizards and sat-casters to mutate themselves to their hearts content! The Comm-Artists also allow you to make minions out of traps that you find!

Cool. I am one of those weirdoes that prefers things in print so I shall wait until you release the whole thing.

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.
