System Book 2: Xibalba

Watermarked PDF

A body drifts in the vacuum of space near the ruins of a habitat, dimly illuminated by the cooling corpse of a star. Strange noises echo down empty corridors. Ghostly figures appear outside spaceship windows. Voices from the past and future call for help on the radio. Ships go missing without a trace in the darkness.

Are you brave enough to explore Xibalba?

Spica Publishing presents System Book 2: Xibalba - a complete planetary system around a white dwarf star compatible with the current edition of the Traveller or any other SF RPG, designed for use in an existing campaign or as the focal point of an adventure. Inexplicable events plague the inhabitants of the system - are they really haunted by the ghosts of the dead, or is there a more rational explanation for the manifestations?

12 that counts the cover and open license so really it's 10 pages pages and $3.99 to basically say it's a spooky place were things go bump in the night, and no there is no actual explanation or reason for it. Oh sure there's some nice pictu [...]

This is an excellent product. It is scientifically accurate and is flexible enough to fit into any Traveller game or other similar SF RPG setting. The mystery is left undefined yet useful suggestions are provided to aid the GM's job. You are not left [...]

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.
