Ashen Stars: Dead Rock Seven


Some mysteries, you really don't want to solve. If the thing at the centre of the labyrinth starts hunting you, you'll wish you'd never started searching in the first place. Some truths are buried for a reason. The sound of claws on metal grew louder. Something scraped at the outside of the sealed hatch.

'This is impossible. They're dead.'

They weren't.

We were.

Dead Rock Seven is a collection of four adventures for Ashen Stars from acclaimed writer Gareth Hanrahan (Arkham Detective Tales, Brief Cases, Invasive Procedures). Over the course of these adventures, the lasers are hired to deal with problems as diverse as murders on an old asteroid mine, missing executives on a pleasure planet, and threats to the security of an interstellar cooking contest. You can run these adventures as one-shots, as individual episodes in your own series, or in sequence as a self-contained mini-series.

  • The Pleasure Bringers brings the characters to the pleasure world of Andarta, searching for a missing executive who has disappeared into the seedy underworld. In the course of their investigations, the characters discover the bizarre fate of their quarry, and must decide the fate of an entire race.
  • Dead Rock Seven - Something is killing workers in an exhausted mine on asteroid SIS-45546. If the lasers' suspicions are correct, this heralds the return of a deadly foe once thought defeated.
  • Period of Tyranny - A terrorist attack on a passenger liner draws the lasers into the tumultuous politics of the synthculture of Pioneer, where the darkest period of Earth history is repeating itself.
  • The Anaitis Ingredient - The lasers are hired to provide security for a high-profile cooking contest on the Anaitis-17 space station. The station is attacked from within and without by fanatic Restreamers, who intend to trigger a temporal event that will rewrite history.

Customer comment: Just finished reading the first adventure from the pre-pre order. Fantastic! Not at all what I was expecting, and that’s a good thing! Very Noir (at least, that’s how I picture the setting), and it shows you how diverse the adventures can be in the Ashen Stars universe. I’m pre-ordering this thing this weekend…and at this level of quality, I’ll pre-order anything with the Ashen Stars title on it. More fiction please Mr. Laws… God, I’ve turned into a gushing fan-boy…what happened?

The first adventure in this anthology, the Pleasure Bringers, is one of the wackiest, weirdest crime stories I have ever run at my table. This is a very good thing. It is a very nice set of stories, each independent, but can be easily woven into some [...]

These are an excellent set of scenarios for Ashen Stars, taking the characters to a variety of colorful locations during their investigations. Although the included scenarios are linked, they can easily be played as single scenarios instead. Of the fou [...]

The perfect companion to your Ashen Star Core Rulebook, Dead Rock Seven gives the eager GM four scenarios to run that range from sexy pleasure planets to desolate asteroid mines. In each case, your lasers will need to use ingenuity, skill, and luck to [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
