Astra Imperia 2

Watermarked PDF

If you enjoy reading stories about battles in space against pirates or invading alien armadas and wished you could partake in the battles or even conduct your own, then Astra Imperia is geared for you. Astra Imperia is a tactical and strategic space simulation. Astra Imperia can be considered two games in one, a tactical space combat, and a strategic stellar empire simulation. Presented here are the rules you need to conduct your own battles, from a single cruiser defending a convoy against pirates, to a clash of mighty fleets fighting for supremacy to rule the stars.

This is the second version of Astra Imperia. The rules have been streamlined in some cases and a new system for custom weapons is in place. There will no longer be cookie-cutter star ships.

This is a playtest, and is subject to change. Any and all feedback is welcome. In addition to credit in the book, people who purchase the playtest document will receive a like amount off of the final product.

No Watermark Problems noted on the current version - overall rating 85%! Could use more art.
Future Warfare with many excellent charts for calculating accuracy for laser blasters and mines for a sci-fi environment. Well thought-out and a great value. Price should be much higher!
Well-done, Erik.

Um, the huge 'playtest' watermarks on every page are annoying. Documents classified as Top Secret are not even that heavily marked up.

I can see that. Future versions will have that reduced in size or more opaque.

Are counters and maps provided?

Not at the moment. Counters eventually with print and pdf. A map most likely only print as a black hex map would consume a very large amount of ink.

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.
