15 Starport Encounters - Space Opera Support #4


In most space opera settings, at some time or another the PCs are going to be passing through a starport. Whether it’s a massive structure that puts today’s modern airports to shame or the futuristic equivalent of a small tin shed on a hill, starports can be a fantastic location for adventures.

15 Starport Encounters offers 15 different encounters that the PCs could find themselves involved in when they next visit a starport. Each encounter has 3 different possible explanations (giving 45 different scenarios in all). You can choose to use one of the explanations as-is, combine several explanations into one, or use them as a springboard for your own ideas. To give each scenario even more flexibility, several complications are suggested that may make the PCs lives even more interesting.

A few of the situations the PCs could find themselves dealing with include:

  • Mysterious datastick
  • Conspiracy theories
  • Long lost friend?
  • Woman in need
  • An old flame

As an additional aid for the busy gamemaster, 15 Starport Encounters includes several tables of suggestions for NPC names, ship names, bar and club names, as well as shop names for places the PCs may visit.

15 Starport Encounters can be used with any system.

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.
