"The Quest of the Claw" RPG Comic Issue 3

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

In 1983 I was a bright and wide-eyed individual and was new to the work force and the curious hobby of role-playing games. I became a founding member of a Brisbane-based club called Queensland Role Players (QRP) and, when the club committee discovered I could draw, I was asked to create a mascot for QRP and came u with a young apprentice wizard called QuRP.

Many months after drawing QuRP I began to wonder what his back story might be if he was an RPG character (you could see I had no life) and this led to me writing “Quest of the Claw” a comic tale set in my fantasy world of ‘Eldoria”. QOTCt poked fun at Dungeons and Dragons and some of the antics of the players I was running games for at that time – my younger brother Stephen and good friend Steven Twine exist in the pages of the comic.

QOTC was featured in a club newsletter and later published in the student guild newspaper of the Queensland University of Technology. It was the first thing related to role-playing that I ever got paid for. After its appearance in the student paper it vanished into my archives and it was only recently that an old friend of mine, Wesley Kublick (whom I had not seen for over 30 years) visited Brisbane and asked if I had ever done anything with QOTC. Wes was always been a keen comic fan and he still remembered QuRP and his adventures after all these years.

So…encouraged by Wes’s praise of QOTC, I delved into my filing cabinets and dusted off the original sheets I had penned the comic on all those years ago in order to serialize it once again for a new generation of role-playing fans. I hope you enjoy 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.
