Venus Planet Sourcebook


"We, the adopted children of the Golden Star, have come to resemble our world in a great many ways. As it floated, bright and unequalled, in the skies of past centuries, so do we bring illumination and inspiration to the struggling civilization of Humanity. As it gave up its secrets slowly, grudgingly, so do we speak only what others need to hear and show only what needs to be seen. As it was molded to be a home and haven for us, so have we ourselves proven adaptable and accommodating to the harsh impositions of life on a new world."

-- Sheng Mai

The Venus Planetbook is a Silhouette game manual covering the wealthy and secretive nation of Venus. The Venusian colonists have begun terraforming their fiery world into a livable home; since then, they have risen from poverty and starvation to become the most respected economic power in the Solar System of the 23rd century.

Within these covers you will find:

  • A complete history of the colonization of Venus;
  • An overview of Venusian culture and politics;
  • Descriptions of the major Venusian corporations;
  • Venusian archetypes and equipment;
  • Military and civilian vehicles used by the Venusian corporations.

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.
