Watermarked PDF

The Descender-Class Light Dropship is a versatile dropship with a wide ramp and space for infantry, cargo or even a small vehicle, such as a Tigress armored personnel carrier.

The landing possibilities of the Descender-class are almost unlimited, and where landing is impossible, for example densely packed jungle, the ability of the spaceship to ‘hover’ on its grav motors allows troops to deploy by abseiling or grav belt.

The Descender has a heavy turret mounted on its back and also a flexible mount below the 'chin' of the cockpit.

The dorsal turret often mounts a missile launcher and the 'chin' mount often contains twin blaster cannon, but armaments vary according to mission and the level of resistance that is expected.

In the assault role, Descender's are generally more heavily armed for self-protection, both in transit and for suppression of the landing zone. This extra armament may be in the form of door gunners, or the modification of the stub-wing heat vanes with hard points for the carriage of missiles and rocket pods.

These deckplans include.
Spaceship statistics
Area descriptions
Color deckplans with legend and key, and printer-friendly monochrome maps
Background sections on, design, operators and typical missions.

There is also a quick-start version of the Spaceward Ho! vehicle combat system as an added bonus.

A short adventure hook is also included to show how this design can serve as a platform for unique planetary-assault adventures.

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.
