I wish this would have broken the weapons out by culture too for those of us culture blind or no knowledge of said cultures listed.

I like the supplement on some of the items I have no idea what the background for some of the weapon. You list Iwisa as an African war club, OK, got it. Nothing for the Black Egg. Where did it come from? Emei dagger means nothing to me. Little help there? So not a lot but a little clarity would be great! Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Maybe a world map? Put the weapons near or on the continents they come from? Doesn't have to be huge, doesn't have to show all the areas, just where the weapons come from?

ofc all constructive criticism is necessary to improve and sell more! Idk if i should do a map cause I do mention in parts that the emei daggers are from the shaolin monks in china, and that the iwisa is used by the Zulu people of south africa iirc. A map may just be a bit much especially with how fucky homebrewery is with images. But its a good suggestion and I hope this urged you to look into those cultures for aesthetics! If you have the time would you mind leaving a star rating and review saying if you have/want to use any of them? It would help more than you know

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.
