Event Horizon - A White Star Adventure

Event Horizon is a 60-page first-level adventure for Barrel Rider Games’ White Star: White Box Science Fiction Roleplaying.

This adventure takes place in a hard science/space horror genre and, as such, the adventure assumes that the players are playing human characters who would fit into this style of setting. While a low-level adventure, Event Horizon is not an easy adventure and is designed to be difficult. Death is probable, insanity even more so.

The players face a wide variety of problems in this adventure, ranging from the mundane—typical combat encounters, repairing the ship, etc.—to dealing with the insanity-causing rifts in time and space, and confronting old personal horrors and memories. Due to the limits placed on the players, and in keeping the adventure human- and hard horror/science-centric, a few new options have been added to the available rules and are strongly, but optionally, encouraged.

Unfortunately there are some heavy typos:
1) page 50, paragraph "New Friends" the words are overwritten and also in the forth line at the beginning of the page.
2) the "Drift Action" table at page 4 ends misteriously with the word "backward [...]" at 12 roll result.

Is there a way we could get a pdf of just the maps so that we could get them printed?

Anything to do with the sci-fi horror film of the same name (Event Horizon: 1997)?
That film was almost Lovecraftian in theme.

It is certainly inspired by it but does not follow the plot really at all, or include similar characters.

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.
