Coriolis: The Dying Ship

Watermarked PDF

It was hot, he was sweating heavily, and the exo felt bulky and unresponsive. He let the headlights of the suit sweep across the hull before him. The enormous ship was dark and looked abandoned.

The com crackled in his helmet and he heard Rouya’s distorted voice:

“Zebo, what do you see?”

He moved through the vacuum toward the seemingly derelict hauler, with only a thin cable connecting his exo to the shuttle and his friends behind him. His headlights illuminated big letters painted on the hull.

“It’s Orun II, we’ve found her. But I see no signs of life onboard. Something is obviously very wrong.”

He was only a few meters from the hull now. The coms crackled with some form of interference and Rouya’s voice disappeared in static. Then, the lights on his exo went out.

He reached the hull with a light thud. Everything was silent except for his own heavy breathing, quickly fogging up the visor of his helmet. He was alone now.

The ice hauler Orun II has stopped responding to hails, and has changed course towards a deadly asteroid cloud. The player characters are tasked with intercepting the heavy freighter to find out what has happened onboard and bring it back to Coriolis safely.

What is hiding aboard the silent hauler and what has happened to her crew? In this full-length adventure for Coriolis - The Third Horizon RPG, the players get to explore the mystery of the dying ship, confront an ancient secret - and hopefully live to tell the tale. The contents include:

  • An exciting and action-packed scenario taking place on Coriolis, in space and onboard the dying ship.
  • Ship plans for the ice hauler Orun II.
  • Several player handouts.
  • Practical tips for the Gamemaster.
  • Five pre-made characters, ready to be used right away.

Played this adventure at Gen Con 2017. Really enjoyed it, very good exposure to the game system.
If you are interested in the system, I recommend this module.

I can not de-layer the PDF which makes it really tough to print. There is so much black. Please, please provide a print friendly copy of this and all the other Coriolis stuff?

Hi! The price is wrong - $19.99 is the print price, not PDF. We have asked Modphius to sort this out asap! /Tomas, of Free League Publishing

The price for the PDF via the publisher's website is only £7.99 ($10.29 at current exchange rate). Meanwhile, the print version at the publisher's website is £14.99 ($19.30 at current exchange rate). Please validate DTRPG pricing on this.

20$ for 35 pages? O_o
Modiphius, what's up with that? You were always adequate with prices before...

Well 10$ is better. But still for 35 pages... Conan the Thief was much larger and cost only 13$.

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.
