“Plastic Hearts”

The Plastic Hearts subline is the brainstorm of John Picot and takes Black Tokyo in new, high-tech, cyberpunk directions. It’s a vision of this unique campaign world colored by sci-fi and cyberpunk elements- a robo-fetish present or future for Black Japan.  

The Tetsujin are a race of artificially intelligent robots, originally constructed for ultra-heavy labor and the dangerous jobs that humans were unwilling to perform. Due to the need for a high functioning intelligence to carry out complex tasks, the Tetsujin were given a sophisticated neural network AI to enable them to learn from mistakes and improve task management.

 

The first Tetsujin rolled off the assembly line during the early 1980s, and alongside the Famicom and VCR, became one of the iconic technologies of the eighties. The Tetsujin first prototypes were comparative simpletons, with crude armatures and limited vocabularies, that still none the less cost millions of dollars. These first robots went to work in factories, mines and the fields of large, corporate owned farms, displacing human laborers. Then military models, with improved AI and more complex chassis emerged. Then, when the first POETICA hit the market, refinements to the Tetsujin operating system to make their personalities more well rounded and naturalistic emerged. Soon enough, prices fell enough that wealthy families could afford a Tetsujin gardener, chauffeur or bodyguard.

By the 1990s, Tetsujin minds were complex and agile enough the cleverest could be considered almost human. By the turn of the millennia, the same activists that were just beginning to push for POETICA and catgirl emancipation were calling for Tetsujin liberty.

The difference- the Tetsujin got their freedom, albeit with some strings attached. The POETICA and Nekomusume races are still struggling in their soft bondage. Why? Because the diversified mega-corp that created the first Tetsujin prototypes wanted it that way.

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.
