In 1884 American inventor Frank Stockburn invented a machine that generated a power opposite to that of gravity. His machine, called the Negative Gravity Screw was used to make the first Aeronef. History changed from that date...

Aeronef is a set of wargames rules allowing you to fight battles of aerial warfare in the last decades of the 19th century. A simple game to play, yet challenging to master, the Aeronef rulebook contains:

* the basic rules for aerial combat between Negative Gravity and R-Matter powered aeronef and lighter-than-air aerostat.

* an optional complete geo-political and scientific timeline from 1852 to 1899.

* optional rules for players to expand the game to include bombing ground targets, anti-aeronef "archie" fire, fixed-wing craft and taking off and landing.

* military review of the Great Powers aeronef capabilities.

* full design and modification rules for players to create their own perfect craft.

* four introductory scenarios set during the Great War of 1889-91, all with details of and stats for the craft involved.

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.
