Unfortunately, the table of contents hyperlinks do not function in the PDF of this rpg. The game is interesting, but the table of contents links not working makes the book currently unpleasant to navigate as-is. I seem to be having the same link issue as ChrisB, I suspect. I'd dearly love it if this were fixed. :)

(For the record, I currently use SumatraPDF for reading PDF files)

Hi! I have a problem with this product but I don't know where I can otherwise submit bug reports.

In the table of contents, there are lots of clickable internal links but they appear to be misdirected to look on the computer of the person who created the clickable internal links, not on my computer. This causes an error! Is there any prospect this might be fixed?

I heard a rumor that 'glass makers dragon' may be appearing soon - any confirmation on this?

another issue - I left a review of this game on this site, and it is no longer visible. what happened there?

The .pdf is 200 MB in size!! Has anyone experienced problems trying to display a .pdf of that size on a tablet? It might even make desktop computers struggle. You may want to note the Shadowrun RPG which is 489 pages for 44 MB only, and use similar tricks to whatever they do.

What is the difference between the premium and standard editions? Just wondering because both are described as hard cover and colour but there's a $60 CDN price differential?

Apparently the "premium" edition is printed on heavier, thicker, higher-quality paper. Reference:

Love the pdf, it is really awesome. Have to play this soon, but I do notice that there is no front and back cover for the pdf, the first page is the one with Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine and the Dedication and Special Thanks. Also, I will love to buy a Hardcover of this. When can I expect that PoD?

Is there a reason a cover & back cover is not included in the pdf?

My copy has a front and back cover. Which one did you download?

I suspect I'm missing the glaringly obvious, but I can't find the character sheet. Lovely, lovely game though! Ta!

There doesn't appear to be one; I must admit that I think that's a bit of an oversight as well. I mean, the stats are simple enough that you CAN just use a normal piece of paper, but it would be nice to have an official sheet with a place to track your current quests and XP, to note which perks you have, etc.

To be totally honest, I don't feel ready to have one made. I want to see how a couple of things turn out in the first two supplements before I decide on the canonical character sheet format. I know that's silly and I'm probably being a weird artist goof type. ^_^

There are a few unofficial ones floating around if it helps, including one on the wiki here:

Somehow I missed this Kickstarter. Is there a POD version planned? If one purchases the PDF will there be a discount on the print? Thanks.
Customer avatar
Jenna M September 05, 2014 3:07 am UTC
There is a PoD version planned.

I plan to click the option that lets you get the PDF free bundled with the print on demand. I figure Bits&Mortar is on to something there, and last time I checked DriveThru made that very easy.

I don't know if that applies retroactively. If it doesn't, I'll probably send out a discount coupon for the PoD to people who've bought the PDF not long after the PoD goes live. I think it *does* apply retroactively, which makes it very easy.

Honestly, I can't really imagine *not* pushing through something like that... but at the same time, I'd rather that be a happy surprise for PDF purchasers rather than something you go in expecting.

Do you have a rough idea of when the PoD version will be available? Please forgive my impatience, but it's such a beautiful book that I want to give it as a gift :)
Customer avatar
Jenna M September 25, 2014 10:44 pm UTC
The PoD version will probably be out between mid-October and mid-December, but I don't yet know for sure.
Customer avatar
Andy E December 04, 2014 12:39 pm UTC
Looking forward to the PoD version. I have the PDF but reading it electronically doesn't do it justice.

Why is the PDF more expensive than the ePub version?
Customer avatar
Jenna M September 05, 2014 2:51 am UTC
1) It includes the ePub version, and adds additional content in the form of a PDF version.
2) The development costs for a PDF are higher.
3) It's actually not; or, rather, it's the other way around. The ePub-only option is *cheaper* than the PDF&ePub bundle, because I wanted a cheap option available for people who struggle to afford $20!

Thank you for the reply.

When I bought the epub version I thougth this would also give access to the pdf one when it was released, or at least a discount . It seems that is not the case. Not satisfied.
Customer avatar
Jenna M August 29, 2014 6:37 am UTC
I'm sorry to have discommoded you! I do hope to set up that discount, but I'm waiting for more of the kickstarter sponsors to pick up their copies. It looks like the only way I can actually do it is to send out a discount code by email to people who bought the ePub version. That includes, well, the kickstarter sponsors---and I don't want to muddy the waters for them.

I haven't decided at which percentage or day I'll just accept the possible increase in confusion and send that out. ^_^

To be fair, I think it was mostly my fault, as I assumed things you never said at any moment. Nice game, though.

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.
