Do you yearn for the days of optimistic, action-packed but thoughtful sci-fi? Vintage Space is a new OSR space opera game currently in dvelopment. This is the first PDF release of the game, though we've been gettin a LOT of feedback from the community. 

With Vintage Space you play a member of the Interstellar Alliance's Space Corps. In just a couple minutes you can have a character made up Here's what you do:

-Pick a species from six familiar sci-fi tropes

-Roll your seven stats

-Choose which branch of the service you want to join and record your Space Corps Academy skills

It's really that easy. Thre are no feats to consider, no advancement trees, nothing.

Making yoru own starship is even easier!

Individual combat plays out on a standard hex map, but space combat uses an abstract, theater of the mind style. Instead of trackign acceleration, energy use and so on, each character decdes what they want to do to help and rolls to succeed. That's it.

The setting of Vintage Space is familiar to anyone who is a fan of live action science fiction produced from the 60s to the 90s.

This is a free playtest, but we appreciate tips. This goes towards helping us get the game ready for production. There are big things ahead for Vintage Space. Based on a flood of positive feeback and the enthusiasm of a growing community, we're going to Kickstart the game in a few months, with some very cool products on the way.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
