Thanks Ben, I would love to hear what your favorites are... not that there is any healthy competition in-house between the creators or anything... ;)

Not at all... it's purely academic... we're not keeping score ;)

Who doesn't want to combine spells, throw gnomes, cause ridiculous explosions, and honor the great lord and wizard Bigby? If you don't, you are sad and silly. Check out my full review here:

Heya Brad, it usually takes about 24 hours from purchase for anyone to be able to review books on the Guild, so we should start seeing reviews come in over the next 12 hours or so :)

I'm making my way through it today, so far its everything I thought it would be. Enjoying the read and looking forward to using some of the ideas, and maybe even coming up with some variations of my own... very thought provoking.

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.
