What We Give To Alien Gods was originally written to be compatible with Mothership's existing 0e or Alpha ruleset. As soon as the forthcoming 1e rules are made available I'll be publishing a digital errata guide.

This is really difficult to read and the pdf is pretty clunky. Do you have a plain-text/epub/html version? Also you have a lot of tags all over the place and I kind of wished they linked to something. idk. Also I feel like I need to make a Sanity save to try to understand how this thing is laid out. Do you have some sort of map? Even a shitty one would help. Also this has been up for a few months and you still don't have the additional resources that are linked to in the book, even on Thanks.

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.
