Space Opera Passenger Generator - Space Opera Support #1


In space opera settings that allow the PCs to own their own ship, transporting passengers is a common occurrence. But coming up with unique passengers for each trip can be a real drag for the gamemaster - all too often they get relegated to a simple "you find 5 people who want to travel".

Space Opera Passenger Generator provides a busy gamemaster with a series of tables allowing you to quickly and easily come up with unique passengers. These tables allow you to generate the details about the passenger, and the reason why they are travelling. Naming passengers is no problem either, with a handy list of 110 names to pick from. Also included are optional "complications" - a quick and easy way to create plots and adventures tied to the passengers.

Three fully detailed passenger groups (with description, travel reasons and complications) are also provided, ready for use in any futuristic campaign.

Space Opera Passenger Generator can be used with any system.

The price isnt bad, especially when bought in a bundle, but i just didnt really see that there was anything more than a generic generator here. I used it once or twice but just really didnt see any long term value in it. If you need it, i would suggest [...]

The Space Opera Passenger Generator by Polgarus is a very short and strait-forward product, its purpose is clearly stated in the product name. It is a printer friendly black and white PDF of eight pages in length (though most of the final page is take [...]

There is not much specific to space opera about this collection of tables - they could be used as a Pulp Passenger Generator without change, or a Jack Vance Passenger Generator merely by substituting tables of skin conditions and hats for the tables of [...]

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.
