The Trail of the Scorpion is the first series-long collection of episodes for Rocket Age. It takes our heroes from Venus, to Earth, on to Mars, Ganymede, and finally to the moons of Saturn. Along the way they will discover and fight the machinations of the mysterious Red Scorpion crime syndicate and its shadowy leader. There will be puzzles to solve, battles to win, chases, betrayals, and high adventure.

The Trail of the Scorpion contains six new adventures. The book also contains complete write-ups of three new organizations, including the Red Scorpion crime syndicate and its machinations, along with plot hooks, new weapons and equipment and even some strange new creatures to encounter.

This 128-page book contains:

  • Six thrilling adventures, each of which can be played on its own, or as part of a linked campaign, that take in the length and breadth of the Solar System.

  • Detailed background on the Red Scorpion Crime Syndicate and its machinations throughout the Solar System… and beyond!

  • Two new organisations to help or hinder our heroes – the Greater Ganymedians and the Order of the Scribe.

  • New equipment, including the latest development in robobrain technology.

  • New creatures, from the strange botanical Terrolinian Wolf found in the forests of Ganymede to the huge White Tree Grubs native to Venus.

The Trail of the Scorpion is 128 pages with black and white interior.

Written by Ken Spencer, Matthew Haines, James M. Spahn and Anne Toole, with art and design by Paul Bourne, Jon Hodgson and Scott Purdy.

This campaign book is excellent, incredibly meaty and just plain fun. The overarching threat of the Red Scorpion feels incredible and really unites all the very different missions. It also acts as a tour of the Solar System, taking you to some [...]

Format

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.
