Dark Nova Roleplaying Game Quick-Start Guide

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the Dark Nova Roleplaying Game Quick-Start Guide, a free download from Dark Nova Games for those interested in our flagship game, the Dark Nova RPG.

This introductory guide and mission is designed to ease novice GMs and players- both veterans of gaming and those new to roleplaying games as a whole- into the Dark Nova RPG. Due to the complexity of the full game, this guide will act as a bridge to help you work your way into it with simplified rules and layman's term explanations. Included in the guide is a short mission titled Outpost 13, which was first introduced at Comicpalooza in 2010 as a tournament module. Now, it is presented in a more novice-friendly simplified form for prospective players to get a feel for our universe.

A good intro for people who have never played a tabletop RPG before, it has only one significant flaw: it is incredibly dependant on the players only taking a linear path and doesn't give the GM enough info on how things work for them to improvise even [...]

Unlike the other Science Fiction Role-Playing Games. Dark Nova RPG resembles the Hard Science Fiction that we know and love such as Alien and Starship Troopers. Its raw hardness shows how space is vast and full of danger and in order to survive the har [...]

Original electronic
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.
