'The Lostfinders Guide to Mire End' has been reviewed as:


"A good and worthwhile purchase with a good price for an a|state fan and something I think with little tweaking could be useful for any dark future game. (Or for that matter dark fantasy with a little more tweaking.) I heartily recommend it. If the chaps at Contested Ground Studios keep up this level of good work the future of a|state unlike the setting is bright indeed." (Dan Jericho,

And commented that it:

"...does a superb job of expanding a sector noted in the core rulebook although it is a limited, concise expansion. As such, it leaves readers begging for more." (Wayne Tonjes,

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.
