Yeah, I'd love to get my hands on a physical copy. Wish they'd make this print on demand. As long as I'm wishing, I wish they'd revive the game, and provide some new supplements and materials.

I really, really wish FFG would stop endlessly republishing 40K and do a second edition of Fireborn. The game setting is excellent, and the mechanics have potential behind them but this edition just has so much wrong to fight past before you can hit the good stuff. The GM handbook is alrightish, but the player's guide is an absolute disaster.

...I kinda think there's a matter of 40k having a more established audience and also that this, technically, IS a second edition - the original came out in '04, and they reprinted it in '13, probably with some edits.

So be greatful that it's actually around in this era, and we're not stuck having to hunt for the old 2004 version., I haven't gotten the Fireborn stuff myself, but my point still stands.

Correction; Fireborn never got reprinted.
They only put up the pdf's, and the pdf itself has not seen a revision of the original book in any way. It's the exact same thing.

The game master's guide is just about error free, but the player's guide had some issues they fixed up in an eratta file/booklet almsot immediately after it came out.
Sadly they didn't seem to have bothered putting that up here..

(Also, that these pdf's popped up, just went alongside putting pdf's of other old out-of-print games as well.)

Any chance we might get a print on demand version?

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.
