Fragged Empire Adventure - The Ghost Ship Carthage

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.00

A free introductory adventure for Fragged Empire.

At 03:13 hours standard Haven time, on Octo 14th 1005 AX, the Archon medical frigate Carthage issued a general distress call. At 5:05 hours on Octo 16th, Legion VESPER force Epsilon boarded the vessel. An hour later, the ship went silent, charted a course for deep space, and was never heard from again.
– Vital Emergency Stellar Protocol Expedited Recovery (VESPER) Force After - Action Report on the Carthage Incident.

Adventure Background
As the crucible of the Great War consumed the Archon Empire with impunity, its searing heat gradually melted the Archons’ ironclad ethics to slag. The Carthage began as a medical ship on a mission of mercy to the Kaltorans of Haven, but as the Archons’ cause grew every more desperate, she received a dread new purpose: harvest Kaltoran refugees, and Nephilim prisoners of war to develop new bio-weaponry for immediate deployment on the front.

The Ghost Ship Carthage
Written by Wade Dyer, Ryan Schoon, and Nicol as Logue. The ensuing experiments yielded a deadly nano-virus, Kormoria, which sowed death and madness among crew and captive alike. Shortly after VESPER force Gamma breached the Carthage, the
vessel’s Archon master, Solaria, either in the grips of madness, or in a vain gambit to save the rest of Haven from Kormoria, charted a course into a vast uncharted region of space…

Now, 108 years after its lonely sojourn, a homing beacon on the Carthage pilots her back to the Haven system. The derelict ship floats between trade routes, emitting a weak distress beacon, and remains unresponsive to all hails.

The Player Characters
The Players take on the role of down-on-their luck salvagers in a ship that barely flies – they need a big payday. When the call goes out to investigate the ghost ship, most put sense before greed and stay away from the job. But the Players don’t have the luxury of turning down a job as lucrative as this one.

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.
