Dossier: Tristan & Trixane Halvern

Watermarked PDF

Meet the Mad Twins...

We couldn’t tell what the Colonel and the Arixan were talking about. Judging by their wild gesturing, it wasn’t good. I glanced around the table. Vajra was uncharacteristically quiet, staring down into her drink with both hands as she stared down into it. Berlin sipped his kaff with a worried look on his face. I didn’t try to fathom what was running through their minds. Probably, like mine, it was nothing good.

The Arixan left and the Colonel made his way back to our table, muttering curses under his breath. He shook his head and took a long swallow of his drink before meeting our questioning gazes.

“The good news is, there’s someone who knows where that missing cargo is,” he started. Then he shuddered — something he only did twice since I’d known him. And this was the second time.

He took a moment before finishing: “The bad news is, that ‘someone’ is the Halverns. And apparently, they’re due insystem tomorrow.”

Now we all shuddered.

Tristan and Trixane Halvern are children of a disgraced noble who, after a series of social, political, and emotional setbacks, decided that they could only trust — and love — one another. Turning their rage outward, they became interstellar pirates, striking fear into the hearts of star merchants with a combination of volcanic rage and ice-cold calculation. Considered borderline mad by polite interstellar society, the two have vowed that the universe will burn before they’re separated by either distance or death.

Referees who need an adversary for their own band of galactic heroes need look no further than this first offering in the Dossier series for 2D6 games such as Cepheus Engine or the Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG.) The file offers a brief character sketch, a physical description, personality sketches, character stats usable for CE and the OSFRPG, and suggestions for using these mad twins in the Referee’s own universe.

    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.
