Career: Salvor


The Colonel and the salvor’s assistant talked animatedly as they walked through the breaker’s yard, Berlin and I close behind. Turned out they had both served in the Marines. I kept my mind focused on the planning how to remove enough phase-point discriminators to finish fixing the drives without destroying them.

I heard Berlin give a gasp. The Colonel and the salvor must’ve heard him too, because they slowed their pace, looking back at him quizzically. Berlin grabbed my arm with one hand and pointed excitedly with the other at a half-hidden hulk in the near distance. “Bel! That one! Is that…?”

Sitting in the yard was the Ginger Maru! The old freighter was almost a legend; stories of her and her eccentric crew — and the valuables the hid on board — having reached even this far out.

The salvor’s assistant looked on matter-of-factly. “Got her in just a couple weeks ago. Didn’t think she was the real Ginger, but I guess judgin’ by you boys’ reaction…”

The Colonel was already striding toward the ship, Berlin hot on his heels. Looked like we suddenly had a new salvage mission to perform.

Astrotime disasters and huge space battles create wrecked and damaged vehicles. Some of the resulting debris fields can be quite large; space is more than big enough to render some of this stellar flotsam forever lost. But sometimes, the wreckage occurs close enough to inhabited space that cleaning it up is not only possible and necessary, but profitable. The hardy individuals who handle this duty are the Salvors.

This supplement for 2D6 RPGs such as Cepheus Engine and the Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG) allows Referees and Players the option of adding these individuals to their game universes. Included are character generation tables, an overview of a salvage operation, and a new piece of equipment designed to aid the effort.

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.
