The hardcovers arrived today. Very nice. I don't regret this purchase at all.

I'm glad you chose to separate this into five volumes. I won't mention any names (you'll probably know who I'm talking about anyway), but there's another publisher of one of the most famous mega-dungeons around, and I love this publisher's material. But this publisher is also known for publishing huge books, which I unfortunately tend to shy away from because 600+ page books are a bit unwieldy. So I thought it was a good design decision to break yours up. And the breaks in the volumes make sense.

So now I'm anxious to see what else you have coming our way. We won't have to wait ten years, will we?

I hope we won't have to wait so long: Arden Vul *was* a long time in development! :-)

Hi Jeffrey,

Just curious what you thought of the overall quality of the hardbacks. Do they have decent bindings? I've gotten other POD products in the past and the construction did not reflect the price.

They're fine; pretty average for POD products. The proof will come with extended use. I know my Labyrinth Lord Advanced book started coming apart in just a few months after fairly gentle use.

Actually, my feeling is the opposite. I realize it's really too long for one massive book, but I would totally prefer two large, Rappan Athuk sized volumes to this format. Because now you basically need at least 3 of the 5 volumes at hand, even to read it, let alone run it. I think it may get pretty awkward at the table, but we'll see.

Hiya... I believe a few weeks ago when the PDF-only version of Arden Vul was released, there was mention of a discount so that those who had already purchased the PDF could buy the hardcovers at cost? Can you advise? Thanks!

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.
