Shapes loom - unknown in their form, material and texture, in element and layer, significance. What will they be for you..?

Elaboration: Structure & Surface is a tool designed to support the development of locations of various types. On just one page it provides 540 descriptive terms across six tables, with a table for extent and a diagram for generating orientation.

It is compatible with various genres and systems and suitable for use in roleplaying and beyond. It can be used both to inspire locations and to detail them in terms of form, material, texture, element, layer and significance, even in the course of games.

The three pages are arranged for ease of use on screen or printed, the key features in two variant layouts. The tool includes:

  • 540 descriptive terms arranged in six main tables, all on one page
  • the option of generating terms in a range of three columns or five
  • a diagram for finding orientation, six points on each of two axes
  • a table suggesting an extent, i.e. the specific surface(s) involved
  • a compact diceless number generator for the two ranges used

The tool can be used with Narrative: Abandoned Space and tools like Landscape: The Manse and Location: Crawling Gorge to develop features of the sites further.

Elaboration: Structure & Surface is also part of the main bundle.

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.
