Ah, got you. Years ago, Ed Greenwood told me that the arms of Luskan were as follows:

A shield with its lower third wavy green (rows of waves, usually stylized), surmounted by an across-the-center-of-the-shield bar or vertical band of gold, from which depend (‘grow out of,’ with no top detail, just appendages of the band) three oars, equally-spaced and sloping diagonally down to the sinister. Above this is a field of scarlet, and on it, just above the gold band, three white crescents, tall and narrow with horns to the dexter, and the center one being larger than the outer two, which are identical to each other.

The three crescents represent the sails of ships (“the City of Sails”), the scarlet represents blood/piracy/willingness to wage war/defend oneself/fighting spirit, the gold represents wealth and prosperity through work and through naval power, and the green is of course the sea.

If this device is displayed on a pennant or ship’s flag, the ‘field’ (color...See more

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.
