I am curious about the Thoradorian minotaurs... do they have more information, beyond the lineage block? Is there a lineage block for Imperial Minotaurs? It is hard to tell; copy-pasting "Thoradorian" from the book results in "T h or a d ori a ns"

Hi there, thanks for your purchase. Thoradorians are a feral offshoot. They match more with the Monster Manual feel of minotaurs. The legend goes they were cursed by Sargas to be degenerate for betraying their emperor. You can find more information about them in the 3.5 Dragonlance Races of Ansalon book. They weren't a big sect of minotaur culture, so we didn't delve too deeply into their history.

The Imperial Minotaurs are the exact same as Blood Sea Minotaur stats. We do have an NPC stat for the Imperial Minotaur, though.

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.
