Another great product! Page 10 says LOCALIZACIÓN in the table. Page 17 has DADO at the top of the table as well has a period after The Work. in the description as well as in the table, should probably be removed. Page 18 table at bottom has some words in Spanish. Page 20 for Garden says “vegetables o herbs” and should probably be “vegetables or herbs”. Page 22, the table has “location” and “effect” in Spanish. Page 24 says Objetive under Rise of Enemy Forces and again under Enemy Forces Objective. Under Gathering of Enemy Forces is says “Efect”.

I found a couple of odd errors in the English version's text. On page 3, in the last paragraph, it reads "female adventurers," and again on page 11 under the Committed Defenders header. I assume this is supposed to be either "player adventurers" or just "adventurers", as it really doesn't make sense in English otherwise.

The table on page 10 is partially untranslated, and the headers (very little/little/pretty much) are not great choices in English--minimal/moderate/abundant are probably more accurate.

Great supplement! Definitely fleshes out this aspect of the Forbidden Lands well.

Something to fix in a future revision: the English edition still has some untranslated elements, mainly titles.

"The maintenance of the Stronghold is carried out by paying
money for the materials and the salary of the workers who
must take care of it. This cost is the same as the silver
column, that is, the same as increasing the location by 1
This amount of silver coins must be spent every
quarter. Any location in which money is not invested for
its maintenance runs the risk of wearing out."

Paid every quarter? Of a day or every 3 months?

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.
