Experience an outer space product of your imagination.

Your imagination becomes your secret weapon.

By choosing one of the four ready-made scenarios or creating a situation of your own, the campaign begins. You'll face the excitement of ship-to-ship combat and plan your tactical victories on the Knight Hawks game board. You'll learn all details of spaceship design and operation. And by combining this knowledge with the vast reaches of your imagination, victory may be loded in a single roll of the dice!

Playable as an expansion of the Star FrontiersTM Alpha Dawn role playing game or as a separate boardgame.

Knight Hawks can be played as a beginning or advanced game when played seperately or can combine with and expand the original Star FrontiersTM Alpha Dawn game. Together they open an infinite universe of role-playing and board game fun.

Everything you need to play the board game is here.

This set includes a role-playing rule expansion book, board game rule book, adventure module, full-color map, color counters. Two 10-sided dice not included.

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.

Received this today, looks good but the page of chits, and the maps are unuseable. I Would suggest that these be seperate from the book, the maps are too small to be useable.

Is the Warriors of White Light module in parsable PDF and/or OCR text? I have a hardcopy from the original boxed set, and a PDF from StarFrontierman before WotC re-release. That PDF is not parsable, as it is images of each page. I don’t want to spend money on something already have.

Does this come with the chits and map?

No. However the pdf format has pages you can print. (The files have map pages and a map counters page that can be printed, but may need scaling or larger paper for the map counters to match the map)

What was the maps and map counters in the original boxed set are now just pages bound in the book and not usable for game play.

(I ordered both the pdf and the softcover.)

So what's going to happen to the legit free downloads of the Star Frontiers material from They've got basically the entire game line over there.

Per his agreement with WotC from over a decade ago, as these become available, he is pointing his links to the product pages here. He was allowed to post the PDFs for free until such time as WotC made them available and then was to link to those.

Thanks for that update. I was wondering what was going on.

Wouldn't it have been better to release the Alpha Dawn rules first?

That would have made sense.

Scanned image
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.
