The Strike Force Archives

Watermarked PDF

The Strike Force Archives: over 800 megs of Aaron's original material retrieved by Jason Walters with the assistance of the Allston Estate. (The original recovered material was a 600 MB zip file, which unpacked itself into 872 MB with over 5,800 items.) Edited and organized by Strike Force co-author Michael Surbrook, it includes an introduction and an index to this vast collection of newsletters, artwork, blue books, character sheets, notes, and other materials.

Note From Archivist Michael Surbrook: There are exactly 956.5 MB's of material in the directory containing the archives. And 6,928 items. I organized it all, as well as cleaning up file and folder names. Also, two 2,000-3,000 pages PDFs are in this archives, containing information on over 25 years of RPG sessions from multiple campaigns!

It contains all known notes that Aaron condensed, reworked, and ruthlessly removed to fit in what I now realize was a VERY truncated "Reader's Digest" version of his HUGE Champions campaign. I got this big honking set of files AND purchased the new, expanded Strike Force volume - and I'm glad I did.

I now have Allston reading material to last the rest of my life.

Does this archive contain a PDF of the original Strike Force manuscript?

This file won't download. It keeps timing out.

Original electronic
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.
