A Better Game With Dice and Chips 2010

Watermarked PDF

Since the beginning of such additions to the DriveThruRPG/RPGNow Weekly Newsletter as A Better Game and the comic strip Bring Dice and Chips, we've received hundreds of requests for an archive or to make "back issues" available. While that's still in the works, what we've decided to do here is collect each an every one of the Better articles and all of the strips into this single volume.

And we've thrown in all of the Between the Panels strips from the DriveThruComics Newsletter as well!

We were just going to make it a freebie download, but our recent history has shown us that we can do great things for our community while offering cool content to you. So, instead, we're making this available as a donation gift, with all proceeds going to Toys for Tots in celebration of this holiday season.

Toys for Tots

It's nothing fancy; just the articles and strip images put together into a simple PDF. Still, it's all there, and we sincerely hope you enjoy it while helping a wonderful cause we believe in - toys and games for kids in need during the Holidays!

As always, thank you for your support!

I will admit (in my evil lazy ways) that I do not always keep up with the newsletter here. Mostly on account of being busy. However, I have to say that I now regret that, and, indeed, so should you, if you happen to also have followed in my ways of fol [...]

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.
