Most of the Solar System laughs at Venus' army. They think the corporations lack backbone, that the Venusians' Home Defense Force is a showpiece of flashy ostentation. They look at the garishly-lit warships of the Venusian Navy, and rest easy, knowing that the cosmic rug merchants of the second planet have no military might to back up their ephemeral money and stocks. Most of the Solar System believes that the veiled planet is harmless.

Most of the Solar System is dead wrong.

Behind the Veil: Venus is a supplement for the Lightning Strike Cinematic Fleet Combat System, detailing the military vehicles of the various Venusian corporations. The book also covers a number of advanced rules to give even more tactical options to Lightning Strike players.

Within these covers you will find:

  • Full rules and datacards for fielding the exo-armors, fighters, exo-suits and warships of Venus;
  • Advanced rules for new weapons, stealth systems, cargo and autonomous combat drones;
  • Two full-color counter sheets.

A copy of Lightning Strike, a few six-sided dice, pen and paper are required to use this supplement.

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.
