Life in the 24th century is much changed from the ancient pre-Fall civilization of Terra, but one thing remains the same- the desire for the acquisition of wealth and power. Whether driven by that goal specifically, or making a living providing goods and services to those who are, much of the dynamic world of 2318 is fueled by this quest. Freetraders run cargo in dangerous territories- and often smuggle into where it is not wanted, or out of where it is supposed to stay- for profit, pirates prey upon unwary merchants while privateers hunt the pirates in turn, or prey upon the ships of enemy nations themselves, and behind the scenes corporate intrigue and espionage rivals that of the many nations and races of known space. This is the world of shadows, where secrets and information are a prized commodity, and death waits eagerly for the unwary.

Fortune and Glory focuses on those characters who's occupations are a bit on the shady side, from Freetraders and Privateers who often delve into smuggling and theft, to rogues and netjackers who's quest for the Almighty Credit drives them to find innovative ways around the technology people use to protect their wealth. Fortune and Glory expands out the Corporations, which are equal parts antagonist and client in their shadow-wars with one another, as well as the overall setting of the universe from the shadier perspective. In addition to a short story featuring characters from the upcoming novel The Sword of Ares, there are sections describing aspects of life in the 24th century. New player races and challenging threats are contained within. Featured among the alien threats are the fanatical reptilian Serog, and expanded entries on the slaver-marauder Byntai and the aggressive warriors of the Kraegarym. More information and expanded details of the pirate marauders and Syndicates are added in, including the infamous Barbary Bastards pirate gang. Features of Fortune and Glory include expanded skills and skill rules, expanded naval and ground combat rules, new psionic talents, and rules for constructing and modifying emulators, vehicles, and building ships from the keel-up.  Loads of new ships, vehicles, weapons and equipment all await the players within these pages. Step into the shadows and make your fortune, or find glory trying!

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.
