A Note About Print Options

This is a black and white book, although the available print options only list colour editions. This is because the paper available for colour printing is thicker and of a higher quality than that used for black and white books. Better paper is more durable and takes scribbles and highlighting better than thin paper. Thus, to make the book more durable and useful, we went with the better paper.

Would love to add this to my collection because it's always excellent stuff! However, I like matching things, and all the rest of my Raging Swan stuff is in softcover. Will there be a softcover forthcoming? Thanks!

Eric I can certainly look to create a softcover version. I know what you mean about having everything on a bookcase matching.

For what it's worth, I too am holding out for a softcover edition to match the rest of my GM's Miscellany collection. Thanks, Creighton!

The softcover will be available by the end of the week. I've got the proof, and it's all good. I'll send out the special codes to our patrons and then I'll set the softcover live. Thanks for letting me know your preference!

Check for typos: you have "blue dragon laird".

Now my brain is filling up with ideas surrounding an area ruled by a blue dragon who is operating as part of the conventional government and social structure, and what sorts of adventures this would spawn. And it's all your fault!

And clearly this dragon would have a Scottish accent.


Seriously, though, thanks for mentioning it. The typo got caught in our last proof of the physical book, got missed from this listing. I'll update it now.

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.
