Shadows of Iceland


This was White Wolf Publishing's April Fool's joke for 2008. However, so many people liked it that we're keeping it available for future customers. Enjoy!

Bax Masterson, our (now revealed to be fictional) Assistant Developer, went on a rampage in 2008 about a product of his that never got to see the light of day -- World of Darkness: Shadows of Iceland. You can find his original blog post (along with suitable fake outrage from WW employees) here.

A decent little call-out to Iceland; somewhat roughly written but it is a free download, after all. Fondly recalls earlier books (Shadows of Mexico & Shadows of the UK) and the underlying idea is good. It would be nice to see the 'Shadows of .. ' [...]

I liked the concept, Iceland is actually a pretty neat location for a game in the WoD. This preview (the PDF is actually titled "Shadows of Iceland pitch") is a little rough writing-wise and needs some editing work done. As an excerpt it did [...]

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.
