The Black Company: Raid on Laconis IV: Compatible with Gruntz 15mm

Watermarked PDF

The Black Copmany has been hired by Amway Galactic's senior VP of Operations, Martha Sorenson, to conduct a punitive raid on the planet Laconis IV. Laconis IV is the only producer of the crystal Laconite in its natural form. Laconite is used for numerous Holographic systems used throughout Terran space and beyond. The reason for the raid is simple, vengeance. Martha's son, David, was a junior engineer overseeing the installation of a new robotic crystal processing facility in Bayview City when a labor strike turned violent and he was killed in the chaos. The Labor Union strike and other affiliated militant groups were funded by Galactic Multi-Corp in an attemtp to invalidate the mining contract on Laconis IV which stipulated miner compensation and happiness were to remain at a certain level. After a six month investigation Martha found that agents of GMC were funding radical groups and fomenting discontent among miners. Once the strikes turned violent Amway Galactic had their very lucrative mining contract cancelled and given to their rival GMC. GMC hired mercenary units to keep unrest contained and initiated a complete lockdown of the planet while they exfiltrated their agents. The mercs are from different units but the primary unit is the Green Machine, a mecha battalion with an unsavory reputaion for savagery and ruthlessness. Martha wants the Black Company to drop onto the planet and destroy the valuable mineheads and spaceport conrol facilities.

This PDF provides a short campaign of 4 linked scenarios for Gruntz 15mm. It also proveds stat cards for all Black Company and Green Machine vehicles used in the scenarios.

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.
