Reading Project Aon's books in e-books
Project Aon makes an effort to provides some of its content in formats suitable for electronic book (e-book) readers such as Amazon's Kindle, Sony Reader, or Barnes & Noble's Nook (just to mention a few). In order to read a specific book in your reader, download the file corresponding to the format that your reader supports from its Books page and load it in your device.
The e-books we provide:
- Include links that makes it possible to navigate between sections when making choices.
- Include meta-data to make it possible to sort them in your e-reader or favorite e-book management application.
- Include links to external sites, if your e-book reader can connect to the Internet and has a web browser you will be able to access additional information.
How to read using an e-book
You need to have a pen and paper chart along with you while you read. You can use Project Aon's Action Chart Pack and print from it the Action Chart of the books you are going to read. You will need the chart to keep track of the items you find, your endurance points and combats.
You also need to have a 10 sided dice or the Random Number Table printed to play combat and run random rolls when required in the book.
Known issues and limitations
A list of known issues is included below. We are making an effort to fixing these when possible. But please note that some are limitations of the e-book formats or readers that we are unable to fix.
- The books are not interactive (see below)
- Navigation is sometimes a little unclear. This is because page length and font size are variable with device settings, some books sections might wrap to a second page. In some sections the page might split between section choices and you might not be aware (unless you change pages) that there are additional choices available.
- Some books include links to other books. This linking does not work.
- The titles of the illustrations sometimes span multiple lines instead of showing in one single line.
- Depending on the e-book device, images are not always scaled properly. In some e-book readers images are not even rendered correctly at all.
- The map included in the books is quite large and not scrollable in some e-book readers. The map is of limited utility in those e-book readers that do not allow zooming or panning of large images.
We encourage you to contact us and report any features you find based on your own experience. When reporting issues, please indicate which e-book reader (device or software) are you using.
We try to provide some of the most common formats. If you own an e-book reader which does not read any of the formats the project provides you can still use an e-book management application, such as Calibre, to convert the files we provide into other formats. This application is actually the one we use to automatically convert from our base format (ePub) to other e-book reader formats. If you own a common e-book reader that we haven't covered, you may also want to request that we add your reader's e-book format to our list.
Please take into account that:
- the e-book files provided are generated in a programmatic way and might differ from the Internet Editions we publish at the web site in HTML format
- we are unable to test ourselves all of the different e-book formats in all of the possible e-book readers
We encourage you to contact us and provide feedback (positive or negative) on these books. We will do our best to try to bring the wonderful experience of reading and playing our favorite adventures to these devices.
Common questions (FAQ)
- If you reader is capable of browsing web content you can read our Books directly using the HTML content we provide.
- If your e-book reader does not incorporate a web browser, but is is capable of reading HTML content directly, you can use the simplified (single-page edition with illustrations) or simpler (single-page edition without illustrations) files we provide.
