MT Hard Times

Watermarked PDF

I don't exactly remember when it all started to change, when each starport looked a little more rundown than the last, when starships became fewer and further between. It was sometime after 1120.

Now starports are in tatters and starmercs are in demand when you can trust em. Still, you need the escort,cause theres no shortage of pirates or stat-sanctioned privateers.

Some of those worlds are dying, running out of everything including air. But that doesn't stop the natives from going after what they need at any cost. Everything from ammunition to immunoboosters is in short supply. You use whatever you can get your hands on and some of the stuff is pretty old-fashioned or downright weird.

Me? I'm a survivor. I've gotten used to the whole sorry mess. But I guess it's true when they say we're living in 

Hard Times

Inevitably, aftermaths are no long than the wares that cause them. And the War of the Rebellion is no exception.

Hard Times provides both referees and players with a detailed look at the post-Rebellion Imperium and the new challengers that they can expect to face in it. However, Hard Times is more than a sourcebook. It integrates adventures with resource materials in order to provide complete support for roleplaying in the postwar Imperium.

As part of that complete support, Hard Times offers:

  • Practical and easy-to-use guidelines for creating new adventures within the environments of the post-Rebellious Imperiim.
  • 10 well-detailed, sample adventure for use in these new environments, plus several brief adventure outlines all of which serve as examples of these new environments and how to create them.
  • A flexible adventure interface design which allows you to us each of the adventures as part of a complete campaign or by itself.
  • Additions to the UCP design sequence, special post-war industries, a unique collection of implements and opponents and more.

The war may be ending, but there are Hard Times ahead.

Of all of the MegaTraveller product, this was my personal favorite. Being able to apply damage to a planets infrastructure in steps was beyond belief. I wish this line of prduct (MegaTraveller) was the best of them all. TNE got way to technical, and Cl [...]

Scanned image
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.
