Explore the Unknown 

Elevation was a proud organisation of brave explorers, seeking new worlds and alien species.

Now, 40 years later, its founder has been lost in space. Funds dwindle, outdated equipment falls apart and Elevation’s few remaining starships barely work.

But a small team of die-hard explorers refuse to give up. The search for new aliens ready to join the galactic community is much too important to leave to shady corporations and criminals.

Elevation is a campaign and setting book for M-SPACE. It contains three scenarios and a detailed subsector with descriptions of worlds, locations, technologies and powers.


Contents include:

  • Three scenarios forming an exploration campaign

  • Technology, key personnel and driving forces behind the organisation called Elevation
  • Seven major alien species and their home worlds
  • Details of the five most powerful organisations: Merchant's Guild, CypherCorp, Krayson Industries, The Order of Science, The Table of Avalon and The Pirate Confederacy
  • Several locations, like Elevation's HQ and the lawless Barterdome, ready for use in scenarios
  • New technology, vehicles and starships for explorers
  • 50 scenario hooks that are easy to expand into new adventures
  • Extensive chapter of NPCs
  • Notes for the Game Master on how to run successful exploration campaigns

Two free PDFs that accompany Elevation are also available:

Introductory scenario The Triton Incident. 

Player's kit Field Operations Training Manual.


M-SPACE is needed to make full use of the book, but is compatible with most d100 games.

Wrong category, it's not RuneQuest.

Hi Bakk, you're right, this is not RuneQuest. But as Mythras used to be RuneQuest 6, most Mythras titles are labelled this way. I'm sure this will change with time, but at the moment it helps people navigate the d100 sphere of games.

Well, technically it is. It's a BRP variant at its basis.

A refreshing take on a sandbox/hexcrawl-style space-exploration theme. The included adventures are well-designed and I can't wait to run them.

Elevation has the same beautiful fontography and layout that I have come to expect from FrostByte Books game materials: like M-Space, The Triton Incident, and Odd Soot.

I own just about everything in their catalog and will continue to support them while they continue to produce nuanced, well-designed materials like this.

DTRPG won't let me review despite having purchased so putting this here.

A real interesting approach to the idea of Star Trek like organization in the real world of commerce, capitalism and trying to do the "Boldly Go" on a shoe string budget, with altruism as the guiding principle. It has the minimalist style of other Frost Byte products, but all the setting material one needs to get rolling, including three starting scenarios! Definitely in queue for my next SF based home game.

The file is missing all its art—there are numbers without the underlying maps and text broken up by masses of white space.

Hi David, that's strange. Just to be sure, re-download the file and try a couple of different PDF readers. The file was created in Adobe Acrobat, so that would be the safest choice. Just let me know if you still have problems and I will try to help you.

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.
