Colonial Troopers: Knight Hawks

Watermarked PDF

Rules light space combat system, Spacestations, Alien Worlds & Creatures for OSR games.

A Colonial Troopers Supplement

The emphasis for Colonial Troopers has always been squad level missions. Eradicating bug hives, smashing pirate dens, taking paid jobs to wipe out a crime boss, or steal a piece of tech from a rogue group. Spaceships were just a way to get from one place to another.

With this supplement the journey can now be the adventure. When you escape with that weird new weapon from the skinnies that isn’t the end of it. A skinny warship is in hot pursuit, they want their tech back! Ship to ship combat ensues. Blasting their cruiser out of the skies you make fast your escape.

This booklet includes maps for several space stations, bug hives, and a couple of alien planets. A complete sandbox style adventure of an alien "zombie" invasion aboard a space station.

I am surprised you would use the name Knight Hawks, since that is the name of The star Frontiers Ship combat box set from TSR.

The name is Colonial Troopers: Knight Hawks. It's funny the name originally goes way back to an early brainstorming and playtesting session and had nothing to do with that 80's RPG. The group called their party the Galactic Knights, and they had a ship called the Firehawk. It just kind of stuck. It was almost called Galaxy Hawks. I suppose there might be a bit of nostalgia as well.

It's a zip file that includes a ship sheet and a battle map. Previews don't work with zip files.

You can supply a publisher-custom preview file. You are not limited to automatically extracted pages from a PDF product file.

hmm, I don't see that option.
I made a preview video anyways which I think is a cooler way to show off the book.

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.
