FUTURE ARMADA  

REDUX ALPHA
Variant Designs

This issue presents three new additions to the Future Armada universe – each an obvious decedent of an existing ship or station. Based on previous designs and built to add depth and realism to your campaign, these additions should seem both familiar and new.

  • The first ship presented is Jade, a small recon ship for a small crew. Though the hull has been streamlined and reduced in size, this well-worn explorer is still clearly a member of the Wayfarer line.
  • Next is Phoenix. She’s a salvaged Kestrel-class vessel, the same as Gryphon but with a completely refurbished interior and a patched-together exterior. Like the original Kestrels, she can fulfill a variety of roles and is perfect for a crew of 4 to 6.
  • The third variant is an outpost built using the Sendai component system first seen on Argos III. This station, known as Port Jericho, is much smaller than Argos III but still has a little bit of everything crammed into its habitation ring. A lawless outpost on the hinterlands of civilized space, the station has about 100 permanent residents and half as many visitors passing through at any given time.

My hope is that these designs will add a sense of continuity and progress to whatever setting they find themselves in. Existing ships are repurposed, proven designs are reworked to fill a new niche, and every shiny new vessel that comes off the line eventually ends up grungy, beat up, or worn out. That’s life in the void.

Each ship/station is presented independently with its own document, maps, and art within the "Redux Alpha" directory. The .zip file contains the following:

  • Overviews
    • 8, 13, and 29 pages for Jade, Phoenix, and Port Jericho respectively.
    • Each is a PDF file detailing the ship or station, interior areas, and crew.
    • Open Game License stats are provided for reference.
  • Map Books
    • A total of 96 pages containing complete interior maps and deckplans.
    • 3, 13, and 80 pages for Jade, Phoenix, and Port Jericho respectively.
    • Please Note: the individual Port Jericho map pages are taken from Argos III and Invictus. 
    • Miniature-scale (1 inch = 5 feet) maps for tactical combat.
    • One inch grid built cleanly into the art.
    • Broken into pages for easy printing.
  • Printer friendly, black and white versions of the map books.
  • Art
    • Large, single-image maps of both ships are provided (the complete image for the station map is at reduced scale due to file size limitations.
      • These are 150 dpi, color JPEG images.
      • Jade is 17x19 inches. Phoenix is 24x36. Both are full scale.
      • Port Jericho is 41x43 and is at roughly 36% scale.
  • Additional rendered images of the ships and station are also included.

Sample documents and bonus art are available at 0-hr.com.

Like all of the Future Armada ships and stations, these are meant to be useful to game masters and players alike. Story, stats, and maps are all easily separated. Keep what you like & change what want, it's up to you.

I have bought everything from both Future Armada & Armada Codex lines and have enjoyed all of them. High quality maps. Very usable. Really can't go wrong here.

As a proud owner of all the Future Armada & Armada Codex PDF's, I must say that Ryan is a master at his trade! I am always looking for the next one to be released so I can add it to my collection. I love the Redux Alpha and hope to see many more "varient" types of other ships as well!

Scanned image
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.
