Time to get wild!

Ever since the earliest days of genetic manipulation, humanity has been breeding animals to make them more useful tools for humanity.  Dogs and cats became domesticated.  Horses were made to be larger and stronger.  Cows bred to give more milk.  Rats have been used in scientific experimentation.   As targeted genetic manipulation began to be used in conjunction with body manipulation and cyberware, uplifting animals to not only higher intelligence but also the ability to walk upright and manipulate tools became commonplace.  Uplifted animals, while often shunned by some humans and even hated by others, are now common sights within modern Clement Sector.

Within these pages, you will find the wide variety of uplifts which populate the Clement Sector setting.  Everything from the common House Cat which can now request its dinner to the uplifted Apes that form the backbone of some armies to the Class 2 Uplifted Bear which acts as security for your ship's crew. 

And it's not just Earth animals which have been uplifted.  Here you will meet the Yeti from Campbell (Cascadia 0408), the Kraken from Minerva (Franklin 0401), and the Quetzals from Tal'Kalares (Franklin 0105). 

Wondrous Menagerie delves into the lives of uplifts, how the various worlds of Clement Sector treat them, and how humans react to them.  Also included is the Uplift slave career for those characters which have escaped the worlds where uplifts are seen as tools rather than fellow sentients. 

Wondrous Menagerie is intended for use with the Clement Sector setting and rules.  However, these uplifts can easily be used for any science fiction game or setting.

I just wanted to add that I'm buying, softcover/PDF, this not just because I enjoy all the products I have already, but that John W always replies to comments. I'm looking forward to what you have here as well as the Slide & Skull X Bones. Keep up the good work. It's nice to have freshness to the old GDW system I played as a kid.

I feel like the choices of uplifts were constrained by the availability of models at I would have liked to have seen more variety aside from a few alien races. Good effort on their part, despite the constraints required of the art.

I appreciate your response and the compliment to our effort.

However, your assertion that we were "constrained by the availability of models" is simply not true. I chose the animals to uplift long before consulting the artist. So I'm afraid that's simply not factual.

Most were decided upon after long discussions on the "Clement Sector Discussion Group" on Facebook. We wanted to be able to add a certain number of interesting creatures which had been uplifted without things becoming "too outrageous". These are the uplifts we decided to add to the game.

At any rate, I hope you enjoyed the book.

I stand corrected! I have plans to use it tomorrow. My PCs are breaking into a lab, and they'll find some of your folks guarding the joint.

Excellent! Here's hoping they provide a challenge for your players.

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.
