Career: Star Marshal

Watermarked PDF

“Evenin’, Anse,” Shaughnessy boomed as she entered the saloon. She chose not to see the bartender hastily relocate something beneath the bar.

“Evenin’, Marshal,” he replied, glancing briefly to a group of scruffy men at a nearby table. Shaughnessy made her way over to them. Three of the men saw her as she approached and shifted uneasily in their chairs. But she was after their leader, Rayze Walstin, wanted for armed robbery and murder.

Walstin appeared to ignore her as he took a long swig from a battered tankard. “Evenin’, Marshal,” he offered, mocking the bartender’s greeting without meeting her gaze. “An’ what can I do for ya tonight?”

“You can come with me peacefully and without trouble,” Shaughnessy replied. “Or not. Up to you.”


He was fast, but Shaughnessy was ready. As he spun, revolver in hand, she grabbed him by the collar with her free hand while knocking his gun off-target with the barrel of her own quickly-drawn sawed-off shotgun before jamming the weapon hard into his ribs.

“Like I said: up to you. Seeing as you chose the hard way, you’d best get moving before I decide to do something about that lifespan of yours.”

Space is full of frontiers, lonely outposts, and isolated areas where law and order have yet to take hold. Sometimes it’s up to bold appointees to go in and apply the law by whatever means necessary. Such people are Star Marshals, trained to deal with lawlessness and crime in whatever manner they see fit until civilization can catch up. Now Cepheus Engine and Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game players can take on the role of one of these unsung heroes of the starlanes. Career: Star Marshal offers a brief discussion of the Marshals’ role and their enforcement styles, familiar character generation/lifepath tables, an overview of the starship of choice among Marshals, and even a new piece of equipment to deal with the rowdier criminals.

Career: Star Marshal. The long arm of the law just got a lot longer.

    The 3rd edition of one of my favorite SF settings is in the works but I still, um, dislike, the rules they use. With this and a few other things I have seen it looks like the Cepheus Engine just may be the answer to my problem!

    Might that aforementioned setting include some Big Damn Heroes?

    That's a good one but not what I was thinking of... The game I am looking at has a LOT of water involved.

    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.
