The rules have a great layout and many interesting ideas but still have some problems:
- Many spelling issues
- P10 : 2D6 tables with scores ranging 1 to 6 (so obviously 1D6 tables)
- Generals and Daimyos are lacking some informations: are they considered as units with specific stats or not?
- Do Gals & Daimyos have specific morale & discipline?
- the subdivision of Shooting and Movement is quite blurred: you shoot during movement but shooting is resolved afterwards.
Do the +1 and +2 to morale and discipline from Gal & Daimyos apply to their own base (if they are considered as fighting bases)?
On the good side:
- the clan and army generator is really great
- the melee rules are simple and work fine
- All the quirks are easily solvable if you like to tinker rules (the horror!)

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.
