JCLS: Call to Arms 1st Edition

Watermarked PDF

"Tracer Three, this is JSS Bullroarer. Sorry about the delay. We had some ECM problems. We're in position, thirty klicks behind you and ready for telemetry link."

"Glad to hear it, Bullroarer," Kara muttered as her Intruder took another glancing hit. "That "Striker is less than a minute from our transport ships, so let's do this quick."

Taking a deep breath, Kara steadied her fighter's aim, keeping the Dragonstriker centered in her sights. Vulcan rounds tore through her hull, setting off bleating alarms, but Kara ignored them. Either way, this would all be over soon.

Over the alarms, a steady tone accompanied the calm, clipped voice from the Bullroarer, which said, "Target link locked. We have him. Shot's on the way."

Another vulcan burst sheared off most of Kara's fighter's rear hull, but it didn't matter anymore. Smiling, she leaned back in her seat, listening to the tone continue its unwavering song. She kept smiling as a twenty-kilogram metal slug, guided by her targeting signal, hurtled out of the distance and cored a fiery hole right through the Dragonstriker's chest.

As hostilities between the Jovian Confederation and CEGA continue, both nations mobilize their main fleets, bringing battleships and heavy carriers into the battlezones in the Belt and Martian space. In the bustling space of the inner solar system, the battles between the two great superpowers spill over into heavily-traveled trade lanes, unwillingly drawing merchants and neutral nations into the conflict.

Call to Arms is the second supplement for Lightning Strike, completing the space-based rules set with provisions for advanced ECM, minefields, unit variants and space stations. In addition to twenty-four new CEGA and Jovian units, vehicles used by the neutral Mercurian Merchant Guild are also presented. Within these covers you will find:

    • Full rules and datacards for fielding the exo-armors, fighters and warships of Jupiter, Earth and Mercury;
    • Advanced rules for new weapons, cargo and low orbit battles;
    • 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.
