Watermarked PDF + Softcover B&W Book

This month is a bit special. This is a first for the fanzine and it is all about Shadow World. In many ways this is an easy issue for me as I know nothing about Shadow World. I have played a thief and an illusionist in Kulthea but I have never run a game in the setting. I kind of want to keep it that way as I have enjoyed learning about the world as it unfolds. I don’t think it would be the same if I had read the source books and knew what was really going on.
So in this isse most of the work has been done by Brian Hanson and also by default by Terry K Amthor.
I have reprinted an interview that Brian did with Terry (page 5) last year for the blog and also Brian’s article on Advanced Technology (page 15) but the real gem this time is the first chapter of Terry’s The Loremaster Legacy (Shadowstone Chronicles Book 1). If you like the opening chapter then it is available on Amazon as well as other online stores.
Finally to finish off I have a past article by Brian on Time Travel (page 30) and not so much where to start your adventures in Shadow World but when you start them.

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.
