Shaintar Black Lantern Reports: Mercenary Companies

Watermarked PDF
Conflict has been a feature of Shaintar for as long as anyone can remember. Kingdoms have waged war with the forces of flame and darkness, and when there's a lull then inevitably one nation starts a war with another.
Where there's war, there will be mercenaries. In Shaintar the most storied mercenary companies are famous across the realm, their names linked to countless battles. The Shadow Falcons, the Riders of the Light, the Warmakers and many more.
In this book we outline the main mercenary companies, their command structure, their individual styles of combat, and where you're most likely to find them being active. We even offer a few edges... perhaps one of your Shaintar heroes has spent some time among the mercenaries and learned a thing or two.
Black Lantern Reports are short books giving an overview of an organization or group with great influence on heroes' lives. Rather than being packed with many new rules, they are designed to add flavor to your games, to act as a launch pad from which to create interesting encounters and side-plots to your own epic campaign.
Product Contains: a 12 page PDF, layered so that you can switch off the art and graphics to make the document print-friendly.

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.
