Agony is an optional set of rules that adds mechanical depth to combat in the Strain Basic system.

Players will have to balance their actions between offense and defense, bandage their bleeding wounds, and deal with permanent injuries. Players will also find equipment to be more meaningful, with armor and weapons gaining ratings based on their design, size, and material. Adversaries have statistic templates and special abilities.

Note: Everything presented in Agony is included in the full version of Strain

Are the rules in this supplement covered in Xas Irkalla, or would this be an add-on to it as well?

This is only an add-on for Strain Basic. Xas Irkalla contains the full version of Strain, which includes Agony and Abomination.

I received a code to redeem this version because I owned the "legacy" one. But it does not work. Somebody knows what can I do about it?

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.
