What would you do if you found yourself suddenly – and permanently – cut off from everyone and everything you ever knew?

Thrust into an alien society lacking the accoutrements of the modern world? Where you are faced with a potentially deadly struggle to merely survive?

One of the more popular tropes of modern day Science Fiction deals with that very question – moderns being displaced in time and, sometimes, in space (or dimension) as well ... where they find that they are faced with the awful (and aweful) reality of the past or, equally, an alternate dimension where history and technology has not progressed the same way as it has in our version of reality.

Typically the displaced will find themselves faced with a need to change things – perhaps for their own comfort, perhaps from a sense of altruism (or, more than likely, from a desire to become wealthy and powerful beyond any dreams of avarice), or, most likely, because they find themselves faced with a threat to their very survival.

Displaced (Books #1: Lost in Time and Space and Book #2: Survival and Rebirth) is intended to provide a solid structure for a GM and players to build their own campaign world on.

Using the tools and information provided herein you will be able to structure a realistic background in which they can stage their adventures and get their chance to fight the good fight against tremendous odds ... and, of course, also get a chance to become wealthy, respected, and powerful.

The other review covers the contents of the books in depth. Even though I think this is a great product, I want to warn others what its core mission is. It is not Sliders or Stargate or anything with constant travel; it covers people and materia [...]

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.
