Kosmos 68

Watermarked PDF

Chris Kubasik in his wonderful  blog called Classic Traveller: Out of the Box, has brought Traveller back to its beginnings, as a simple but flexible set of three ‘Little Black Books’ that can be used to create stories in the sci-fi setting of your own imagination. This is how Traveller was first meant to be played, and I’ve spent several days doing just that, creating my own Traveller universe based on what is in those three rulebooks. 

This setting has been inspired by many modern images of a Soviet space-future, and also to the look and feel of classic old-style Soviet movies like The Sky Beckons (Nebo Zovyot, 1959), A Dream Come True (Mechte Navstrechu, 1963) and The Planet of Storms (Planeta Bur, 1962). All of these movies are currently available to view on You Tube (28-08-2019). Sure, many of the old Soviet sci-fi films are low-budget and were never considered classics (although both of Tarkovsky’s movies Stalker and Solaris, are today recognized as definitive movie milestones). But it is the look of the movies, and the tone that KOSMOS 68 tries to emulate. KOSMOS 68 can be played with Classic Traveller (the LBBs) or The Traveller Book. Additional Traveller Supplements 1, 2, 4 and 6 might also be useful, these are: 1001 CharactersAnimal EncountersCitizens of the Imperium and 76 Patrons. You will find Zozer Games’ solitaire book SOLO invaluable, too.

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.
