Far Horizon is a Near Future science fiction adventure and spaceship book for Cepheus Engine and for the Classic 2D6 SF roleplaying game that is based on.

It is 2100 AD and the Earth’s Space Development Agency has funded a mission to the outer edge of the Solar System. Pluto and Charon have been explored and human landings have been made for the first time. Now the crew has taken on a new mission to explore Tartarus, a minor planet billions of kilometres from the Sun and one that is a rogue and not native to our Solar System. Tartarus is a passing interstellar traveller and Earth wants the crew of the Far Horizons to be the first humans ever to land on such a mysterious ‘rogue world’. Its irregular trajectory has the scientists on Earth puzzled – and there’s nothing like getting humans on to the surface to solve a puzzle!

This is a scenario that is based, for the most part, on hard science; the Far Horizon is a nuclear thermal rocket, built around a nuclear fission reactor and relying for its internal gravity on rotating spin sections. Further rules and the full background setting for this scenario can be found in the companion Zozer Games book called ORBITAL 2100 (available from DriveThruRPG). However, that book is not necessary for this adventure to be successfully played out. In this book are all the resources, setting material, rules and equipment needed to play out this deep space mission:

  • The exploratory spacecraft, the DRV Far Horizon, is described in detail and illustrated with comprehensive deckplans.
  • Tartarus, its dangers and its secrets, are fully explained.
  • Events and situations to challenge the player characters are presented for the referee.
  • The format of the scenario is based around a realistic mission of scientific exploration.
  • Rules for operating this TL 9 spacecraft and its landers.
  • Rules for the design and use of TL 9 spacesuits.
  • For referees without a copy of Orbital 2100, twelve pregenerated characters are provided, each one a competent and skilled astronaut.

There will, but like my other titles, it will be on Lulu. The POD version will be released in a month or two along with my next release SOLO.

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.
