Quick Robots

Watermarked PDF

Vajra suddenly tensed up; her keen hearing had picked up something in the corridor behind us. With a curse, she spun, submachine gun raising in one fluid motion. Her initial burst caught an arachnobot full on. Berlin followed suit, targeting his auto pistol at the gloom behind the now-smoldering junkpile, where a dozen points of red and a staccato metallic clicking drew close enough for the rest of us to hear.

Several of the red lights went out in response to the shots, only to be replaced by others. The clicking continued, growing louder as the mass of arachnobots drew near. The Colonel hung back, SMG ready, his tactical mind already working on the problem. I stuck close to him, nervously gripping my tool kit in one hand and my auto pistol in the other. It was then I heard the telltale, rhythmic whirr-CLUNK-UNK of a much larger mech approaching. A triad of huge red points appeared behind the advancing arachnobots.

“Colonel…!” I started, stepping backward..

“I see it!” he snapped, snatching a grenade from his belt. He thumbed the actuator and hesitated only long enough to decide on the most effective spot to place the explosive. “Vajra! Berlin! Fireanole!” he shouted, lobbing the device.

Robots are a staple of science fiction, and Cepheus Engine and the Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG) are no different. But while there are many resources for building them, they require a certain investment in time and effort — time a Referee may not have. That’s where Quick Robots comes in. Quick Robots is a system to quickly design a robot helper, adversary, or background character for an adventure. Designed for fast design (most robots can be put together in five minutes), the system includes enough detail to effectively portray a mech while leaving plenty of room for Referee tweaking.

Quick Robots. When you have the metal, but not the time.

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.
