The Scientific Method


Your mind is destined for greatness and has no need of ‘words of power’ that mages and their ilk rely on. All you need is your brain, some elbow grease, a lot of time, and much needed funding.

The Scientific Method introduces the scientist as an optional novice path. All great institutions on Rûl study the sciences in some form or fashion but the studies have largely melded with Technomancy and Alchemy, with many places teaching courses on both. From the Steam-powered trains that run in the Northern Reaches—often augmented with Technomancy to properly function—to the flying ships that traverse great distances, to ignore the scientific aspects to many of Rul’s important devices is seen as great folly to those with a mind for science!

I’m always a bit careful when looking at books that add additional ancestries or paths. Often these can be too specialized, overpowered, underpowered, or particularly redundant. The best ones seem to be few and far between. This particular path is [...]

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.
