This is only an issue when the book gives some cues to contextless things that can happen in a game; most of the book is filled with story seeds and campaign ideas that encompass the entirety of the game's potential.
The book's strength is how well it shows what the God-Machine can do, but without fixing the setting too much.
Occasionally there is a bit of speculation about what the God-Machine could be, its origins. I'd rather have it left as a complete mystery, but I suppose they are for the reader who needs at least some answers. The break-out supernatural creature in the God-Machine chronicles are the angels. Mechanical beings, they can take almost any form. They are created for a single purpose, and vanish after it is completed, regardless if it takes a second or a million years.

Product Information. Copy Link Tweet This. 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.
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.
We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed download 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.
