Signs & Portents - Issue 6


The New Year sees the release of Issue 6 of Signs & Portents! It’s a new year, but you can rest assured that the quality in S&P remains consistently high.

Of Chariots and Acheronians – Conan is nearly here and we thought we would cheer him in with an exclusive new race, along with rules for their preferred mode of transport. Follow in the steps of the evil Xaltotun. After all, it was a time of war…

More Most Wanted – Fergee – Some villains are stinkers and some are real stinkers. Then there’s Fergee. Learn more about the smelliest man in Mega-City One with Matt Sharp.

Interview with a Director – Want to know a bit more about what makes Mongoose tick. Learn what the Throne of Power is and what it can do in this revealing interview. Keep an eye open for Monty.

Serving the House – Centauri females have been something of a neglected group, when you consider all the things that Minbari ladies can get up to, for example. All that changes as Lizard offers a whole new career for Centauri females, and you can bet it involves death and mayhem. The chaps aren’t neglected, either, as we also get the facilitator, the Centauri equivalent of the ‘mover and shaker’.

Gaming Symposium – Celebrating the Season – Clearly still in the party spirit, Shannon Kalvar discusses how festivals begin and where you can take them. From now on you won’t have to call everything a Bank Holiday. Get yourself educated with the smartest column around.

Power Class: Crusader – The latest Power Class introduces the Crusader, a resolute individual intent on rooting out evil wherever he finds it. The ultimate knight-errant if you want a character who puts his duty above his worldly possessions, then this class is for you.

A Question of Culture – No character exists in a vacuum and, as simple as it may be, all characters have a background and a place in the fantasy world that they inhabit. Characters of all races and classes are influenced by the culture they grew up in, and now, with the help of Alejandro Melchor, you can fill in that childhood background. Cultural backgrounds from Agrarian to Waterborne mean there’s plenty to choose from.

Creature Feature – More unpleasant nasties crawl out of the woodwork to terrorise your characters.

No Sudden Moves! – August Hahn looks at those tricky situations where just killing the villains is not an option. Sometimes you have to engage in conversation, whether you want to or not.

Unusual Suspects – Think of Mega-City One and you naturally think of Judge Dredd, the Justice Department, and all things law-abiding. But there’s a whole other side to the Big Meg, and plenty of creds out there waiting to just land in your lap. OK, so you may have to whack a few rivals along the way, but hey, business is business.

Plus there are the usual features, more Tales from Mongoose Hall, Jonny Nexus on train journeys, our new Sarto cartoon and much, much more.

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.
