Federation Commander: Omega Playtest Rulebook



On the far side of the ISC is the impenetrable Galactic Void, a dead zone in which no ship can survive. Beyond that void lies the Omega Sector, a wild and warlike area where two dozen empires battle for survival with new ships and new weapons. These empires and ships have previously been presented for Star Fleet Battles (in a series of five modules) and now, this playtest pack makes five of those empires available for testing under the Federation Commander game system.

Included here are rules for a dozen new weapons, background for five of the empires, and two typical ships each for the Mæsron Alliance, Trobrin Empire, and Probr Revolution and one ship each for the Iridani Questors and the Federal Republic of Aurora. (Each ship is presented in Squadron Scale, and in both full color and low-toner versions.)

The rules are not proofread and need testing. Reports should be sent to ADB, Inc., for use in developing a formal product. Some "art" is not included in this playtest package.

So, this is a complete game or not?

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.
