Dying Lights

The Galaxy is bleeding to death. People are dying with each new nightfall as their very souls wither. Their only hope lies in destruction, and you must teach then to sow it. There is only enough life force for a few to survive, and the supply is rapidly getting short...

Enter a world of fleet combat in an uncertain universe where peace is more dangerous than war. Command battlefleets across the span of galactic space and restore the hope of your people. Whether you seek to destroy your rivals, find a way to heal the galaxy's wounds or merely survive until all others are dead, victory will not come easily in a world where the very stars can bleed.

Dying Lights is a tabletop strategy game of fleet combat and survival for 2-9 players. It is a hybrid of a customizable card game and a tabletop war game. You build your fleets with points values and send them into combat across a dynamic galaxy map, using action cards from your customizable combat deck to give you an edge in battle against your opponents. All of the components are cards, making setup and cleanup quick and easy.

Now Dying Lights is available on RPGNow to download and print, making the game even easier to get into.

This download includes:
- 9 Battlegroup cards representing Carriers, Gunships, Battlecruisers and more
- 9 Faction Cards
- 9 Fleet Marker Cards

- 106 Combat cards including technologies, tactics, battle and campaign actions

I was so impressed with this game. The right level of strategy and complexity but not overloaded to the point of slowing the game down. Game play still flows nicely with an occasional glance back at a rule now and then. The artwork is top-notch [...]

If you like to read, and you REALLY like space battling, such as Twilight Imperium, then MAYBE get this. If you have TE or Starcraft Board game, or the likes? Don't bother getting this download. Save your money. Be warned: the manual is not easy [...]

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.
