Issues 1-10 were the issue numbers originally released back in 90s, with issues 11 & 12 never released, but sitting here (and yes - those will get done soon).

We faced a withdrawal of publishing rights in 2002 from a particular contributor and had to withdraw the issues that were under our control to withdraw and had to regroup and pivot our whole publishing efforts. It has been a long journey.

Right now we are reviewing each issue, redacting the content withdrawn and will reissue. Along with that we are migrating publications files from the software used in the 1990s - much has changed since and AdobeCC which we presently using doesn't support even support Adobe's own legacy formats. So please be patient. I'm looking at releasing issue 9 in the next few hours and within a few days, issue 4 will be available here.

At the same time the Meshan supplements written by Philip Warnes are being progressively released here as well - 1 of 4 is available now. After that I can move...See more

Issue 8 won't make it onto DrivethruRPG. I've reviewed it and its entire article content had to be redacted. You can download a copy of that one here:

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.
