101 Lifeforms

Watermarked PDF

101 Lifeforms is a selection of ready-to-use flora and fauna, prepared to crawl, fly, waddle or stampede their way into your adventure.

Crawling across wind-whipped desert, galloping through scrublands or prowling through dense jungle, the spectrum of alien creatures which may be encountered by interstellar adventurers is beyond belief.

Gliding deep beneath the ocean are wondrous marine organisms as yet unknown to science, awaiting discovery by your players.

Skimming through exotic atmospheres, floating through the clouds of a gas giant or flapping over an alien landscape, alien life is more diverse than most Travellers can imagine.

Included are:

  • 101 Alien Lifeforms each with a player description, referee details, habitat notes and the relevant statistics for a range of Traveller rule sets
  • Listed and Indexed by habitat type (land, amphibian, aquatic, flyer, plant and ‘unusual’)
  • Encounter Tables to determine randomly which of these weird creatures the adventurers encounter

One of the earlier 101 Books released by BITS, 101 Lifeforms is useful for fleshing out alien encounters, giving descriptions and illustrations of lifeforms rather than the simple set of numbers generated from the core rules. When combined with 101 Governments, 101 Religions, 101 Rendezvous and 101 Corporations, a referee can build an entire world from its basic Universal World Profile.

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.
