I assumed from the fact that the Secularist was called a villain in the very brief product description that this was going to emulate a Chick Tract. Instead the supposed villain shows up only to talk and does not want to harm anyone or otherwise break any laws. Points for being surprising and different, I guess, but without any true villain or emergency or anything else there's not much point to it except to raise discussion amongst the players... which you could just as easily do before the game starts or after it winds down.

O...kay. May I suggest the one shot campaign featuring the Secularist also features another anti-hero named Captain Pious? The Secularist and Captain Pious are tearing up the campaign city as they battle each other to advance their strident dogmas. The heroes win the game when they convince these cartoonish polar opposites that the world at large just wants them both to shut up.

Seriously though, is this the right forum for divisive subject matter like this? RPGs are a haven from the stresses of the real world. Could we please keep it that way?

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.
