Description:

A Vorox stands nearly 10 feet tall, bristling with six limbs (each usable as a hand or foot), a full set of fangs, a superb sense of smell, and an uncouth attitude which gets worse the hungrier it gets. Noble Vorox (and their untamed cousins in the wild) even bear poison claws capable of paralyzing prey in mere minutes. What's more, Vorox travel in packs.

And they're still not the premier predators on their homeworld. Ungavorox is one of the universe's most inhospitable places -- even the flowers are carnivorous. With such dangers constantly hanging over their heads or waiting from below their niches in the trees, it's no wonder the Vorox quickly developed sentience and a tight-knit society.

The Vorox book takes a close look at these fascinating sentients and the ecosystem that spawned them. From the swift but small Chidwit bird to the carnivorous Jud-joob tree, the Vorox's plant and animal neighbors are detailed in all their fatal glory. It is impossible to understand the Vorox mind without first knowing the beings that helped to forge it. Also includes: Vorox history, culture, geography, weaponry, new combat actions and character roles.

Each book in the Alien Expeditions series examines one or more alien races, detailing their histories, cultures and planets of origin from multiple perspectives.

Well... If you want your character to be a Vorox, then this is a must. It offers a great deal of background information (concerning the Vorox culture, their society, their homeworld (interesting stuff) and their role in the Known Worlds), but I think [...]

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.
