Captain's Logs from the Sandbox 03: The Mining Colony on Elkos IV


Welcome to our Black Friday weekend sale! For more early holiday savings, visit our sale page.

The abandoned mining colony on Elkos IV has been ignored for years. Now, however, two ships have vanished in the Elkos system and there are rumors of riches under the coat of ice that cloaks the dead world. Could there be something to those rumors? Or is it simply the activities of the notorious pirate known only as Luraya? The crew are not the only ones looking for the missing ships...and the truth.

The third issue of Captain’s Logs from the Sandbox takes the crew to the dead, ice-bound world of Elkos IV. This world will not give up its secrets lightly, but those secrets might be worth more than gold and riches. Face six mission complications, each with three twists, five NPCs, a table of space travel hazards, and a table of planetary hazards. Suitable for any space opera science fiction RPG.

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.
