Volant - Kingdoms of Air and Stone


Volant - Kingdoms of Air and Stone

Volant is set in a world of flying mountains called Skylands, on which civilization has recreated itself after a war between wizards let loose a flood of monsters to occupy the lands below. HUmans ride giant birds into combat, and sail great skyships hewn from the floating stone that underlies their skylands. The only magic is Alchemy, which  creates potions and powders from the magical plants and monsters of the surface. Wild human tribes live on the surface, skulking about in hiding from the horrible creatures which hunt them.

WHAT WORKS: I love the setting concept. I love the idea of playing an adventurer riding around on a giant bird. It’s just cool. I really appreciate all of the tools provided to make Volant your own, right down to the resolution mechanic used. All of [...]

My first-read review of Volant is that it's a good value. The writing is clean and straightforward, and the writer sticks with his concept and keeps the whole deal coherent, both the milieu and the book's content and construction. Most of the things yo [...]

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.
