Blackwood Beginnings

Watermarked PDF

The world of Wreck Age depicts humanity’s desperate struggle after betrayal and disaster have decimated Earth as we know it. Your introduction to Wreck Age begins in the 26th century, during the re-setting of the calendars, or Year Zero, the first year in the re-emergence of civilization we call The Resurgence.

Welcome to Blackwood, the Staker community that you sprouted forth from. You have witnessed its growth and seen the effects of over-population, and your Elders are about to ask you and your friends to go on a mission to help expand the settlement.

This adventure is an introductory adventure for beginning a Staker campaign. Being a introductory adventure, this adventure is designed with the goal of getting your players (and yourself) familiar with the core game mechanics.

Note: This Narrative mission will not use combat and is designed to teach new players the mechanics of this game. This narrative will focus on the players using their characters abilities and building up their characters.

Hyacinth Games has a rapidly expanding line of Wreck Age RPG content, tabletop wargames, and a full line of miniatures.

While I am a fan of the Wreck Age game I am not a fan of this product. Let's start with the characters provided. Adventure is recommended for 4-6 Green characters. 6 pregenerated characters are provided but one, Domm, is clearly stated to be the Traine [...]

It is a brutal resurgence that all must survive trough. This is a way to test the waters and get the mechanics and ideas down quick and to the point. It gives the reader the ideas and background and puts them in control of the success or failure of the [...]

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.
