Lifeform Reading: Xxn

Watermarked PDF

Some worlds in the interstellar government are what humans consider overcrowded; in many cases, this is the result of a small world with an overwhelming immigrant population that relocates to it for whatever reason. But sometimes, the native sapients have a birthrate that is so out of control that the local biome can barely cope without extraordinary biological measures.

One such planet was discovered early in the interstellar government’s history, but initial contact wasn’t peaceful. In fact, the first survey crews arrived as the entire planet was undergoing what could only be described as a brutal, cannibalistic war as the inhabitants — a sapient arthropodal species — fell upon one another with abandon. Only after a year did the violence die down enough to allow the interstellar Scouts the chance to contact the natives…who welcomed the strangers warmly.

Over time, the Scouts learned that the natives, called Xxn (the closest that human vocal structures can approximate the sound) are a xenophilic people whose population and breeding pressures periodically drive them to kill one another as a biological imperative to control their population.

Lifeform Reading: Xxn is for 2D6 science fiction games such as Cepheus Engine and The Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG), although it’s usable with other systems with a little work.

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.
