Aetherium House Ikaru Expansion

Watermarked PDF

“There is only one good, profit. There is only one evil, failure.”

Soki Riatsu Diatoryo Kabushiki to the Eight-Fold House of Sakikaru subsidiary to House Ikaru

For the average person, life is brutally hard. There is drudgery and filth and endless streams of meaningless, menial work. And then there is the Aetherium. More than a virtual reprieve from the urbanized hell of the 23rd century, the Aetherium is a digital landscape of countless dimensional frontiers, a virtual reality so vivid as to be indistinguishable from reality itself.

The Aetherium, then, is the essential human commodity. Uncountable billions plug themselves in every single day to live dynamic dreams of a better existence. House Ikaru sits at the summit of its corporate rivals. Alone. It was not the first to make the Synaptic Interface Modules – the essential wetware responsible for delivering the human consciousness safely and completely into the Aetherium – but it was the first to make the SIM viable on a commercial scale.

House Ikaru created a virtual lifeline for the masses, and it has done so precisely because was never constrained by pedestrian notions of human progress nor moral certitude. This is their story.

Ikaru for Everything. Ikaru For Ever. – Ikaru Commercial Slogan

The House Ikaru Expansion: 48-page full color rulebook includes the mysterious origins of House Ikaru, 3 new Operations, description and rules for all 13 programs in the faction, as well as all faction specific rules.

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.
