Captain's Logs from the Sandbox 01: The Relief Mission


The New Anatolia system produces food for two important industrial colonies. A viral plague sweeps through New Anatolia, and the Galactic Confederation needs your ship to deliver the cure. But how can one virus afflict so many species? Maybe the nearby Carnifex Empire is to blame, or maybe the New Anatolian Independence League. The situation is tense, and many will die unless the crew intervenes.

In this first issue of Captain's Log from the Sandbox, the crew travels to New Anatolia. Explore the seven worlds in the Scythia system, save hundreds of colonists in the colony. Face six mission complications, each with three twists, five NPCs, a table of space travel hazards, and a table of planetary hazards, ready for any space opera science fiction RPG.

Herein inspiration for a science-fiction GM: if too busy to write something, or in need of a 'side-trip' to amuse the characters, or even something from which much more may result, take a look. The premise is simple. Disasters still happen, and [...]

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.
