Watermarked PDF + Softcover, Standard Color Book

For a thousand centuries the Ascendancy ruled the galaxy, but now the empire has fallen into an age of decadence and decay. Ambitious nobles and barbarian conquerors vie for power. Heroes armed with star swords and phase pistols seek the mysterious artifacts of a forgotten age. Finally, an ancient enemy has returned to the galaxy: one by one, the stars are going out.

The Dark Nebula Mission Guide contains everything you need to run an evocative, far-future campaign for the Alternity Science Fiction Roleplaying Game. This sourcebook includes:

  • An overview of the factions, threats, aliens, and key locales of the Dark Nebula setting.
  • Five ready-to-play adventure episodes set in the dying empire of the Ascendancy.
  • An appendix introducing three new player character species: the stealthy dyanthi, robot heroes, and the feral zendi.

For use with the Alternity Core Rulebook.

Another digest sized book with little actual content. Pretty much par for the course with this entire product line.

If you want a laugh the back "cover" page will list a 25.00 price as if it was a physical book sold retail. Sad because this one just like the other source books will be a PoD item.

And, as usual, no preview

When your product is this bad you can't let people see it.

Heck if I hadn't backed it all through kickstarter in 2017 (and was still waiting for several items from that to be released) I would have walked away long ago.

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.
