Fading Suns: Byzantium Secundus


Beacon of Hope,
Sanctuary of Shadows

Byzantium Secundus - the center of the Known Worlds and seat of the Empire. There is no more important or intrigue-laden world, for here the fates of millions are determined. The destiny of humanity is in the hands of the royal ambassadors, Church fathers, merchant princes, alien envoys and underground conspiracy groups all vying for the Emperor's attention and favor.

From here, Alexius' knights fan out across the Known Worlds and beyond on their quests for glory. What they fail to realize is that the greatest adventures wait in their own backyard. For Byzantium Secundus is a world like no other. Its darkest pits hide unimaginable evil. No one shows his true face, preferring to hide behind masks both beautiful and grotesque. The most powerful figures meet here to scheme, plot and act. Victories here can lead to undreamed of glory.

Failure leaves its mark forever.

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.
