TSAO: 50 Wonders of the Reticulan Empire

Watermarked PDF

50 Wonders of the Reticulan Empire is an advanced technology supplement for the These Stars Are Ours! sci-fi setting, also published by Stellagama Publishing. It uses the Cepheus Engine rules and is fully compatible with all other 2D6 OGL Sci-Fi games.

The Reticulan Empire is the richest, most powerful political entity in known space, outshining even its mighty Chiwak rivals. Millennia old, it has reached a mature and stable Tech Level 13. This technological know-how allows the Reticulans to produce marvels of advanced science beyond anything the Terrans can reliably manufacture. This booklet provides a sample of 50 technological and psionic wonders developed and used by the Reticulan Empire, from compact handheld laser "blasters", advanced cybernetics and gravitics, to the arcane psionic devices that unleash the power of the Reticulan mind.

If you are playing in a different setting than These Stars Are Ours! this booklet can serve as a resource for high-tech equipment available to mature interstellar societies. All technologies here will fit – with occasional minor adjustment – into any advanced TL13+ world or polity in any setting compatible with the Cepheus Engine or the 2D6 Science Fiction SRD.

Does it have "warbots"? In TSAO Terra is listed as having a TL13. Doesn't that mean they can produce and maintain such equipment?

Warbots - YES! It has them. And various other robots as well.

Terra has TL13 in a few fields, namely starship technology and some planetside weapons as well. This is not "mature" TL13 as the Reticulans have. Terran military can fabricate some of this tech, but it is far from commercial production.

Any plans for a ships book? I can imagine what heavier units for the Rectucians and others would field.

We are indeed working on ship books, though they are somewhat further down the release schedule - hopefully in the autumn, or in the coming winter at latest. These will be "UFO" books, from a 100-ton Scout (AKA Roswell Weather Balloon) to a 1,000-ton Carrier with a squadron of Saucers.

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.
