Gygax Magazine continues to improve and is by far the best publication covering gaming in general. There is material both for "Grognards" and modern RPG and tabletop gamers. It definitely takes me back to the earlier days of Dragon Ma [...]

I’ll make no secret that I miss both ‘Dragon’ and ‘Dungeon’ magazine in printed format. As mainstays of the hobby, they were my monthly connection with a much larger community, and even to this day, the piles of print magazines have pride of [...]

I have both issue 1 and 2 now in pdf format. Personally I have enjoyed each issue. The articles are well written,and very nostalgic. Some cool ideas for gaming. I wish I had the space to subscribe to the magazine in print, but pdf is easier to store. [...]

I was thoroughly disappointed with issue 1 yet when I saw issue 2, I took the plunge. You see, I love anything that is old-school. Besides the wonderful almost mysterious stuff of old-school, it is also re-living my youth once again. Ok, back to the re [...]

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.
