Dare the Stars!

Watermarked PDF


This is a Role-Playing game of high adventure in a retro-science fiction setting, inspired by the classic “pulp” comics and novels of the 30’s - 50’s - stories where the author’s imagination had free reign, “science” was mostly a useful backdrop and the narration was full of bigger-than-life heroes.
In its pages you’ll learn how to create, use and advance your hero in the footprints of such characters as John Carter of Mars, Flash Gordon and Dan Dare. You’ll be a clever scientist, bringing your inventions with you in space; or a daring explorer, braving the dangers of unknown planets; a wise spacer with his strange powers, or a technologically advanced android.
Come into a world that was the future as our fathers imagined it!

I Luca, how much longer for POD of this I have the old Color cover version and I very much appreciate the updates and art in this digital version and new books for the table (we have got a lot of use out of our old ones =D). When should we see the POD?

Hi there. I mail-ordered the previous printing of Dare the Stars!, with the black cover, from Italy. Aside from the cover, is this edition significantly different or expanded? Thanks.

Great game. Good job. Wrong page # in the intro for the Saving Thrown. Typos in the Clever Scientist class description. Otherwise - this is a great game and a nice addition to the White Star / White Box collection. I look forward for the print version.

The document does not have bookmarks. Could you please provide one with bookmarks, or unlock it to the extent that I can add my own?

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.
