GOLDEN AGE ADVENTURES is an anthology of 16 roleplaying adventures based on "Golden Age" stories by famous science fiction writers of the 1930s-50s.  Each adventure comes with three scenarios, allowing them to be easily dropped in to any science fiction roleplaying campaign.  As with all DayTrippers products, conversion tables are provided for use with other game systems.  Also provided are new rules and GM guidelines for Hexcrawls, Random Encounters, Optional Content, Mission Types and "Vector Slip Failures" which deposit characters in a different universe than the one they intended to visit.

This 364-page book includes:

• 16 Adventure Modules
• 4 Death Worlds
• 7 Hexcrawls
• 48 Possible Missions

"The layout of the adventure parts is pretty great; lots of nice structure, color maps, flowcharts, etc. There's location details,
encounter tables, monsters and more... If you like Daytrippers, then without question this is a great book to get.  But let's
say you don't give a crap about Daytrippers the RPG. In that case, this might still be a great book to get.
That's because of the stories included here."
- The RPGPundit

"I can’t recommend this book any more highly. if you run DayTrippers, brilliant! If you do not but you do run a sci-fi exploration game – get it. Get it now."
- Mark Knights, Games OnBoard

"These are tools that enable you to run the game however you like. That’s not a threat, it’s a promise."
- Abstract Machine

Golden Age Adventures is compatible with DayTrippers and other SF RPG products.

"Golden Age Adventures" includes 16 adventures, each of which has its own locations, creatures, items and events. Each location has its own random encounter table, and several tables are provided up front for GMs who wish to run "hexcrawls". Aside from that, each adventure is different. Some have supporting tables, while others don't really need them.

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.
