Has the the lightning train been waylaid by hijackers? Are train robbers waiting quietly in the first-class cabin for the opportune time to strike?

This release, "Lightning Train" features a massive lightning-powered locomotive, including eleven fully-mapped train cars, inside and out.

Print all the cars for a massive train line, or only the cars you need. All maps are in typical 1 inch = 5 feet scale.

Obviously, this map set is tailor-made for fantasy RPG campaigns in Eberron or very similar high-magic settings. The artist has done a great job of depicting both the inside and the outside of the engine and the caboose and everything that goes in betw [...]

I'm running D20 Nocturnum and my group is fast-approaching a conflict with Kage, a shoggoth lord-like entity, and his bodyguards on a train. There's also a minion working on behalf of Nyarlathotep that's so large it takes five rounds to squeeze into th [...]

I bought this with my 12 year old son's steampunk interests in mind. Had some newb problems figuring out how to download it, but once I did I was more than happy with it. I love the fact that individual cars are offered in a variety of formats. As far [...]

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.
