Star Frontiers: (SF1) Volturnus, Planet of Mystery

Selected Option:

The adventure is explosive...

Volturnus: a barren, hostile world. When a pirate attack stranded your party of adventurers here, your luck and skill, and the help of the Ul-Mor enabled you to survive.

The Kurabanda, a mysterious tree dwelling race, are your only hope of finding the lost explorers you seek. On this planet of mystery and danger, survival itself is doubtful. Are you equal to the challenge that lies ahead?

Volturnus: Planet of Mystery is the second in the Volturnus series of modules for the Star FrontiersTM game. It can be played as a separate adventure or as a continuation of Crash on Volturnus, included in the Star FrontiersTM boxed game. Volturnus, Planet of Mystery contains maps and referee's notes, as well as full information on several creatures and intelligent races inhabiting the planet. The Volturnus adventure will be continued in SF2: Starspawn of Volturnus.

We (Wizards) recognize that some of the legacy content available on this website does not reflect the values of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise today. Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Dungeons & Dragons teaches that diversity is a strength, and we strive to make our D&D products as welcoming and inclusive as possible. This part of our work will never end.

The module is 41 pages total, 27 of that is adventure text, the rest are introduction and new creatures. It's broken into 5 segments for XP awards, so should take at least 5 sessions.

I am also interested in the core game. And the early editions of Gamma World. WotC could probably make some good money if they bothered to release them on pdf.

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.
