TNE-0305 Smash and Grab

Watermarked PDF

Rebuilding an interstellar culture from the ruins of the Third Imperium involves a wide variety of activities, and each of these can form the basis of great adventures. The Reformation Coalition undertakes all of them - intelligence gathering, diplomacy, economic redevelopment, interstellar trade and commerce and many more. But of all of them the one operation that became synonymous with the Coalition, the one most closely linked to the Star Viking mystique, was called...


The Coalition is engaged in a frantic race against time, trying to rebuild its industrial and technological base before the tide of darkness and xenophobia becomes irreversible. To do so, it needs hardware and data bases, and to get them it raids the barbaric worlds of the Wilds, recovering technological artifacts. When these artifacts are defended, the operation is called a Hot Recovery, but is better know as Smash and Grab.

Smash and Grab is an adventure anthology dedicated to the most exhilarating and dangerous of Coalition activities. Each adventure is playable separately, and they can easily be integrated into ongoing campaigns. Here are some of the themes explored in this anthology:

  • Rescuing the crew of one of the original 12 dawn League ships, long thought lost.
  • Meteoric assaults from orbit against a heavily defended base.
  • A rogue Dawn League agent now set up as a TED (technologically elevated dictator).
  • Adventures along the murderous "Vampire Highway" of the Promise subsector.
  • Coordinated operations with local resistance groups.
  • An equipment section with all of the special equipment used in the adventure, including Droyne weapons and vehicles, Coalition remotely piloted vehicles and meteoric assault drop capsules, Star Viking heavy battle dress, and more.

Smash and Grab is a collection of sweat-in-your eyes, ozone-in-your nostrils combat adventures that will leave your player characters (those that survive, anyway) combat-hardened veterans when it's all over. It will leave them with the skills and experience they'll need for what comes next...

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.
