Spaceship Owner's Manual 12 Vagabond


Frigates scout for the fleet, go on raiding missions, carry out patrols, convey messages and transport dignitaries. They also check out that suspicious-looking small freighter that a group of player characters is likely to be travelling in.

Or players might join the crew of a frigate as it adventures on a long mission through space. For a spacer, a frigate is a desirable posting. Frigates often see action, which means a greater chance of glory, promotion, and prize money.

Frigates are a good choice for role-playing compared to larger spaceships, which are reserved for fleet actions. There are also advantages compared to smaller vessels, which do not have the ability to travel such long distances on patrol.

The Vagabond is a "home base" for players in the navy, a familiar and comfortable refuge from the bizarre and unusual things they see during their adventures, or a scourge for players who are trying to go about less legal business.

So, whether you are trying to clear the spacelanes of pirates, or whether you are a pirate sitting in a cell in the belly, the Vagabond-class frigate is a good addition to any game.

Not good. The "maps" are basically thumbnails embedded in a word document, very tiny, literally unusable. I got it in the 5 for 5 dollars bundle.

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.
