This is a recapitulation of the T20 character creation rules, stripped of the non-OGL (Traveller) material. This is a great supplement but does not have the shown artwork. Both this product and the Referee's Screen have the landing party artwork. This [...]

This is an improved version of the Traveller d20 book, with the "serial numbers" filed off. I love the original and plan to use THIS version as a lower cost resource for my players to buy. :) [...]

This is Hunter Gordon's revision of chapters 1-7 and 11 of the Traveller's Handbook. As with the other books in this series, there is little difference between the original 2001 text and this updated version from 2011. In any case, it is absolutely fab [...]

Auf meinem Bildschirm sehe ich seit kurzer Zeit das Players Guidebook für SciFi20. Dieses System ist nichts anderes als ein aufgebohrtes Original-Traveller auf Basis der D20 Regeln. Im Players Guidebook erfahren interessierte Spieler alle Details zur [...]

When I saw this book, and the publisher, it struck me how ironic it was that I had just recently begun a Traveller20 game with my friends. Purchasing this PDF, I immediately saw the similarities... and then realized that it was almost identical to the [...]

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.
