Crystal Raiders Of Barsaive

Watermarked PDF


Forced to raid to survive, the crystal raiders strike from the skies in their magnificent wooden airships, taking what they need and cutting down any who stand in their way. Known for the unique crystal weapons that gave them their Name, the highland trolls find beauty in the harsh environment of the mountains, which also inspires their rich, complex culture of honor, duty and loyalty. Made up on many individual clans and moots, only the power of their fierce hatred of the Therans can force them to cooperate with each other. Other nations know that Barsaive may never escape the threat of the Theran Empire without help from the crystal raiders, but the first step is finding a way to gain and hold their trust -- a task that may require many to die before it is accomplished.

Crystal Raiders of Barsaive offers Earthdawn gamemasters and players an indepth look at the troll raider clans that sail Barsaive's skies and prey on the lowlands. This book describes the nine most powerful trollmoots in Barsaive, including their histories, goals and significant members. Crystal Raiders of Barsaive also includes new rules for airship combat, descriptions and statistics for several new airships and airship weapons, and numerous adventure ideas to help gamemasters incorporate the crystal raiders into their Earthdawn adventures and campaigns.

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.
