ARRRR!  Heave to and prepare to be boarded!

Piracy has been a near constant in Clement Sector since the Conduit was first opened.  In fact, some historians maintain that piracy may have played as large a part in the direction that civilization spread from Hub as did the astrography of the sector.  The act has been part of the fabric of the sector and continues to be so despite the best efforts of the many planetary governments.

Piracy in Clement Sector includes down on their luck merchant crews forced to compromise their morality, people who watched one too many episodes of Superpirate! and think they can do that too, ex-military people who are working for one government to disrupt the trade of another, dedicated pirates who are just stone cold killers, and marauders who are attacking new colonies along the frontier.

Skull and Crossbones: Piracy in Clement Sector covers all of these and delves into the tactics, lives, and traditions of the sector's pirates.  The book covers the pirate havens, the articles of agreement, and the pirate code (more of a guideline, really). Each subsector's piracy problems are covered in detail to let merchants know where to avoid and pirates know where is safe to strike! 

In addition, two unique pirate vessels are detailed here as well.  The Demon-class lembus and the Ironbard-class longship.  Both are presented in our usual Ships of Clement Sector format with in-depth descriptions, full deckplans, and beautiful art.

Grab your cutlass!  Get your rum!  It's time to go pirate, me mateys!

Why doesn't the CE version have bookmarks?

My bad on that one. At this point, there should be only one version of the book present. It is appropriate for both CE and CS (as those versions were merged long ago) and it should have bookmarks.

Sorry about that.

What exactly is the difference between the file titled 'Skull_and_Crossbones_Clement.pdf' and the one titled 'Skull_and_Crossbones_CE.pdf'?

Very little. Most of the changes are related to legal changes to comply with Cepheus Engine compatibility.

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.
