I love it! Thanks for this work! I really like the design, the fonts used and also the descriptions of the often very funny potential catch. I would be very happy about an expansion of the mechanics with additional equipment, e.g. fishing [...]

A very fun supplement with a variety of things to catch between real fish and fantastical fish. I ran these rules for a group recently and we caught a Meowfish and a Jewelfish! A minor issue however is that there are some typos in the fishing tables in [...]

Shocked to see that this has no reviews yet! While not everyone may think you need rules for fishing or other mini games/mundane tasks in a fantay game like D&D, I highly disagree. This has simple clean mechanics and I'd love to see more conte [...]

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.
