Drongo (Planet of Peril)

Watermarked PDF

Drongo, on the edge of Shade Space, is a terrifying world that offers unlimited opportunity for the brave few and lingering painful death for all but the strongest. Any who would tarry here must fear the possibility of being summoned before the Bone Throne of the mad Tyrant and called to account for their presence in his demesne.

A campaign setting for OSR SciFi games.

This version is specifically written for the WhiteStar rule-set.

I read in the one (at this time) review that a map was forthcoming. Is that available yet?

Eh. This is in severe need of an editing pass, as well as some layout work.

Descriptions of the cities were....sparse. Terse. Usually one sentence. Two sentences were an indigence.

And I find this line, describing a city, to be disheartening:

"The floating city of the Undead, The less said about this place the better."

That's the entirety of the description of the city.

Isn't that the point of a book of this kind? To say something about the locations in it?!? No DM's info? No plot hooks? No description of any of the government or people, even if they're undead? Is it a zombie apocalypse city, with no ruler--just mindless killing machines? Or does it have some sort of Death Lord?


I'm glad it was only three bucks.

Umm, just a FYI. You *do* realise that, to Australians, 'drongo' has a particular meaning - Australian slang: A "no-hoper" or fool. Derives from a racehorse of that name in the 1920's that never won a single race out of 37 starts ...

Yes, Drongo is also a name of a Bird. Also is also named for both, a place so miserable you have no hope...

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.
