Hello explorers!

Issue 5 of the Frontier Explorer is now available for download. This issue provides a smorgasbord of articles from our submission queue on a variety of topics.

We have several articles on gaming tips for both players and game masters to help make the game engaging and relevant to the players regardless of the game you play. There is new equipment as well as small cultural write-ups on a couple of the Star Frontier races.

This issue includes a clean, redrawn version of the classic Assault Scout deck plans as well as an initial look at variations on that ship, and a solo adventure that uses those deck plans. We also delve into the internet archive to resurrect some lost material on a new Mega-corp and optional rules for dealing with the expenses of owning a starship. There is also a short story by another new fiction author, that takes place in a new setting.

The issue content (articles) are:

  • A Vrusk Life In Song
  • Ice Cave Wolves of Alcazzar
  • Creating Plot Hook Laden Backgrounds
  • Backgrounds – Rooting Player Characters in the Setting
  • Crafting Personal RPG Quests
  • Financing A Frontier Freighter
  • The Yazirian Warrior Bard
  • The Assault Scout
  • The Albatross
  • Going for the Head
  • Oni-Senada Corporation
  • A Blast from the Past
  • Riddle Me This, Puzzle Me That
  • Dealing with Power Creep
  • To Live And Die In StarLight
  • Grymz Guide Comic #5

Grab your copy and keep exploring new frontiers.

For a game thats long out of publication, support, and even popularity, home-grown support is sparse. Good to see there is still a little life in this game. For a self-published magazine, the quality is quite good - layout, presentation, and eve [...]

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.
