Fading Suns: Forbidden Lore: Technology



Crucible of Progress

- or Engine of Sin?

Technology in the Known Worlds is not what it once was. Science fell from its pinnicle with the rise of feudal lords and superstitious priests, stamped out by ignorance and fear. Few now dare to ignite the fires of progress, to build anew. Instead, engineers pick over the bones of the past to revive ancient war machines for their masters. Visionaries are rare, working under stigma of heresy. Their patchwork creations - whether robots or refrigerators - are considered monsters by the Church. For those who spurn the laws of the Church and construct demons of metal and lightning, there is no escape from the wrath of the Inquisition.

Forbidden Lore: Technology includes information on: starships, artillery, vehicles, Church law, Known Worlds economics, think machines, golems, cybernetics, psychic tech, Vau Tech and alien artifacts.

A must for well-equipped heretics everywhere.

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.
