Frontier Explorer - Issue 12

Selected Option:
Suggested Price $0.00

Hello Explorers!

Welcome to issue 12 of the Frontier Explorer. This issue is all about psionics. We have a variety of articles on mentalist powers, equipment, creatures, and a new alien race by Laura Mumma, an author making her debut contribution to the magazine. I think you'll really enjoy the race she's invented.

In addition to the mentalism articles there are a variety of optional rules articles covering spaceship construction and critical successes and failures. Additionally we have an adventure set on Clarion, a short review of another old sci-fi RPG, our usual comics, and an analysis of what Gandalf the Gray would look like in the Star Frontiers setting.

The article list for this issue is:

  • Zebulon’s Guide to the Rim
  • An Intelligent Alien Invasion
  • Thought Police
  • Battle for the Mind
  • Thought Police Archetype
  • Dr Mento’s Psychic Equipment
  • Psirens: Na’dezh’da
  • An SP on Hakosoar
  • Titan Rising: 2299
  • New Engine Requirements for Knight Hawks Ship Construction
  • Condition Critical
  • Critical Hits in Star Frontiers
  • The Frogg That Kissed the Prince
  • Gandalf was a Level Six Technician and a Dralasite
  • Universe RPG
  • Grymz Guide Comic

We hope you enjoy this issue and as always, keep exploring!

The Frontier Explorer is now listed as a “Pay What You Want” product.  As always, the Frontier Explorer is free (and always will be) and you don’t have to feel guilty about just downloading it and enjoying it for free.  Please do.  That said, if you want to help support the magazine, the pay what you want option allows you to make a contribution. Think of it as a “tip jar” or donation plate.  Just don’t feel like you need to make a contribution.

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.
