Distress Call - Stars Without Number Adventure

Watermarked PDF


"Everything was going as planned, the deuterium arrived on time and was shipped as expected. It was mostly a game of filling the time until the automatic distress call from the Sawshark that is! The players are sent to investigate a mystery aboard the hi-tech mining vessel. All attempts to contact the Sawshark have gone unanswered. A rescue shuttle is arranged for you to take to investigate the state of the ship and its crew."

The adventure takes place in an isolated system with four planets and a massive asteroid belt orbiting a dim brown dwarf star. Players are sent to investigate about a ship suddenly gone silent after sending a distress call to the only outpost nearby and it's up to the them to find out what happened!

That is one of the most useless previews I have ever seen.

I noticed a few errors in the SWN version. Some of the new equipment and trade goods still have Satrfinder specific stuff in their description. The Generator is one of them and a lot of items are using bulk instead of Enc.

The Starfinder version also had some art that should have been in the SWN version the system diagram, and the Repair Robot Picture, the big room images, etc.

I don't play Starfinder and only looked at that version to do a quick comparison since that version was free.

Might be a good idea to do a Starfinder & SWN bundles for the other products so people can get both versions if all the art in one isn't going to be in another version.

The preview doesn't really give enough information. Just the cover, 2 credits pages, a table of contents and a full page image. But nothing else.

Also, the Rules System states that its Pathfinder/Starfinder, but the title says its Stars Without Number Compatible. Can you please clear this up. Is this for PF/SF or SWN?

It's SWN compatible. The Starfinder version is another product by the publisher. If you check out the publisher other product you can find the Starfinder version of it.

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.
