Encounter Critical (Softcover)
Ships in 3-5 business days
This book includes the entire original text and layout (printed from the clean digital masters) available in both softcover and hardcover. The cover is a full-color wraparound of the original obnoxious-orange “hero prop” scanned to create the PDF version. The True Scientific Edition also features pages of extras, including the armor table, character sheet, a hoax-retrospective article by S. John Ross, a guide to the anagrams hidden in the game, and even some (gasp) poetry. Perhaps best of all, there's a beautiful gallery of more cool Encounter Critical artwork by the original illustrators - outtakes that were drawn for the original game but that didn't squeeze in! Since you can't pry any staples from these books, each also includes single-page versions of the monster chart and map for easier reference.
