Space Pirates powered by Fate


This is a very detailed setting that brings space pirates to the Extreme Future universe. The setting includes all the Fate Core rules in this book, so it can also be played as a stand-alone game.

There are descriptions of life aboard a pirate spaceship, explanations for why spaceships on the Tarazet Periphery have large heat sails rigged on them and have their weapons mounted in broadsides.

The economics of pirate plundering, and the trade routes they prey on are covered in depth, and the strategies pirates use in their attacks are also covered in just as much detail.

So roll up a ship full of pirates and start plundering on the Tarazet Periphery, me hearties!

Interesting but, pending reviews, I can't see spending 15 bucks, because the book looks like it's almost half composed of Fate Core SRD stuff.

On the other hand, there's an interesting 15-ish page weapons and equipment section. According to the TOC, about 12 of the 15 pages are non-weapon miscellaneous equipment, with one page apiece dedicated to hand-, projectile-, and energy-weapons. Something about that proportionality is intriguing.

Also the short-looking aliens and robots sections make me wonder, how this book handles playing an alien, or a robot, or an alien robot space pirate.

So . . . $15? Not yet. But I'll spend a Fate point to invoke "Keep Your Fingers Crossed" and hope for some decent reviews and/or discussion.

I agree with this. Starbright products are always a bit too pricey for a PDF. It's ten cents a page...

Drop the price and more people would buy, Starbright.

And there's an awful lot of white space on each of those 10-cent pages...

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.
