ASTONISHING SWORDSMEN & SORCERERS of HYPERBOREA is sword-and-sorcery role-playing at its pinnacle. Play an Amazon fighter, Atlantean magician, Esquimaux shaman, Hyperborean warlock, Ixian necromancer, Keltic barbarian, Kimmerian cataphract, Pictish thief, Viking berserker, or one of many other possibilities.

The heroes of a HYPERBOREA campaign delve the mazes and labyrinths of vast dungeons filled with horrifying monsters, lethal traps, and bewildering puzzles. They explore savage frontiers, breach hostile borderlands, probe ancient ruins, and investigate cursed tombs. They plunder for treasure and magic in a decaying world inhabited by bloodthirsty beasts and weird, otherworldly beings.

Now in its second edition, AS&SH™ has been expanded to include new classes, new spells, new monsters, new magic items, and more! It also includes a new, full colour map, an introductory town and adventure, as well as hundreds of new illustrations! This new edition is backwards-compatible with the original edition of the game. 

Explore endless challenges and infinite realms of imagination with this complete sword-and-sorcery role-playing game!

Just got the PDF. Reading through it and I would buy a physical book in a heartbeat. Love the art, the feel, the feelings it evokes. Wonderful!

Looks like you can still pre-order the hardcover over on the publisher's home page. Here's the direct link: http://www.hyperborea.tv/store/p14/AS%26SH_2E_%28PREORDER%29.html

I am also waiting to buy a POD copy of this book (with a reasonable price).

I had a private chat with the author, and he said there won't be any for the foreseeable future.

I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say the following two things are what make this a very poor choice for a POD product. It's just too big, and they don't offer the POD function for maps that size...
"AS&SH™ Second Edition will come bundled with a massive, 32 × 40-inch, full-colour map of HYPERBOREA"
"Note that this book, when packaged, is going to weigh over 5 lbs."

If you are in the US, that's all fine. If you don't, the shipping is likely going to cost more than the book, and that for many people (including myself) means not getting the book.

Indeed, my eyes watered at the shipping charges. They are, yes, more than the book itself.

Had the same problem but was able to extract the actual image from the corrupted PDF container. Given that the top 3/4 of the PDF loads in a non-acrobat PDF viewer with the bottom remaining blank I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's possibly the OBS watermarking process that is somehow mucking up the internal data-stream of the PDF...

It seems some, though not all, are experiencing this same issue. I have removed the map file and replaced it with a new version. It is a smaller file size, but the resolution is "medium". Please update if you are having issues with the map PDF. My apologies for the inconvenience. Cheers, Jeff T.

It's tempting. Any idea when the print version will be out though? I'd rather have that.

Jeffrey, I see the link is still up for pre-ordering the physical copy over at your company homepage. Is that accurate? It's still possible?

Format
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.
