Mars Planet Sourcebook


"Good evening, and welcome to a special edition of ZONet's Media Eye. For the past year and a half, law enforcement agencies have been struggling to solve the mystery behind one of the greatest man-made disasters of human history: who destroyed the Martian Space Elevator? Was it the terrorist group STRIKE, as the Central Earth Government and Administration claims? Was it CEGA's pursuit fleet during the so-called Odyssey, a fleet already demonstrated as capable of destroying innocent civilian targets? Or was it someone else, someone so shocking that it could change way the Solar System views war-torn Mars? The surprising answer when we return after these messages."

-- Jennifer Mathur, ZONet Correspondent, October 2212

The Mars Planetbook is a Jovian Chronicles resource for the Martian Federation and Free Republic, two nations locked so deeply in an ideological struggle of freedom versus security that their war will never end until one of them perishes.

Within these covers you will find:

  • An overview of both Federate and Republican culture and society;
  • Descriptions of five Martian settings;
  • Tips on creating adventures in Martian space, plus four introductory scenarios;
  • Details on the Martian environment, including the hellish dust storms;
  • New equipment, vehicles and weapons of war.

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.
