  • History of the Abyss including its creation and purpose

Hi Mike! First, this Factbook is fantastic! Well done! For quite some time I have been logging Abyssal references across any number of publications - not limited to TSR/Wizards. I could point you to quite a few additional resources if you want to add to your content. For example, the entry for Feng-Tu could have How-nai-Ho (the branch of the River Styx on the layer), and Kuei-Men-Kuan, the Gate of Demons (entry point to the layer). For Torrent, you could add the Cusp of the Tryst. The list goes on. :)

Hey thanks a bunch! I intentionally try to keep my publications limited to TSR/Wizards content and do my best to reflect what is canon so my content should mesh with official content. For my home game I'll absolutely check out those reference you noted though. Thanks!

Rules Edition(s)
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.
