The Planescape Conspectus

A digital PDF of this poster of setting information for the AD&D 2nd edition campaign setting Planescape.

We (Wizards) recognize that some of the legacy content available on this website does not reflect the values of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise today. Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Dungeons & Dragons teaches that diversity is a strength, and we strive to make our D&D products as welcoming and inclusive as possible. This part of our work will never end.

This was literally an advertisement that got packaged with other products. $4.99 USD for an advertisement?!?
And who the heck left a 5-star rating on a $4.99 ad?

This is just a double-sided poster, right?

WotC has the worst consistency for the pricing of their PDFs.
I think they have a dart board with prices on it.

LOL...couldn't agree more. Who in their right mind would pay $5 for this?

Not only that, the Birthright conspectus is free, and the Wrath of the Immortals box set (230 page PDF) is FREE.
The PoD of H2 (48 pages) is $12.50.
The PoD of H4 (96 pages) is only $10.50.
They're all over the place.

I think it has to do in part with how expensive the print version they got was* as well as how difficult it was to scan.

* IIRC OBS has to buy the older edition books and scan them themselves. This does not apply to anything that was released after 2000 (i.e. 3.0, subsequent editions and a handful of reprints of older editions).

What I don't understand is why they haven't released the 3.X books in POD format. They have the original files, those that were used in the printing of the books back in the early 2000's.

I don't understand where the POD Hardback option for Planescape has gone.

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.
