Hong Kong: Special Administrative Region

Hong Kong: Special Administrative Region

Watermarked PDF

Hong Kong’s fragrant harbor has become a fetid mess. Month-long acidic rains pour from the sky. Triad and corporate corruption has enmeshed the city in debt and crippled its infrastructure. Periodic power outages turn the slums into a claustrophobic hell for hours at a time. Most of the populace has been forced into warrens extending hundreds of meters into the bedrock and can escape only into the Immatrix broadcasts that allow viewers to feel the actors’ every sensation in real time.

Coasting above it all are the Clean. The city’s elite. They can afford the augmentations that keep unfiltered time out doors non-lethal and the glittering, hermetically sealed estates that fill the skyscrapers jutting up into Hong Kong’s sky.

If you’re going to survive in the Special Administrative Region, you’ll need the right connections: Woo Fat, the retired 28K enforcer turned Immatrix producer. Tang Lam, the black market doc who horrifically nerve-damaged a starlet twenty years ago. Billie Ng, a journalist for the HK Compact dissident linkcast. Or maybe Derya Liddy, the concierge and madam for Clean Clients who charges exorbitant fees for her superb service.

Strap on your airmask and take a deep breath. Hong Kong is waiting.

This is a transmission for Technoir, the game of high-tech, hard-boiled roleplaying.

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.
