Great game! We have bought localized printed version and eng. pdf to support writer. We are after first session. We try to keep the vibe of space odyssey, sphere and first alien movie. System works great so far. And the towel reference ;)

I got the print version. I love it and so do my friends! You can center a whole campaign at this station -- if the characters stay there, that is. But there's so much going on, why would they ever leave? I'd tell you why, but that that would spoil it...
If you have Mothership, you should get this book. Not to mention, you should go back their Kickstarter: Gradient Descent, which runs until about Dec. 10th.

A Pound of Flesh includes so much content in such a small package! The space station here is fully fleshed out, with factions, three major timelines of events, powerful NPCs with their desires mapped out, jobs they can give the PCs and random tables showing where the NPC will be and what they are doing when the PCs arrive, maps, cybermods, and following the precedent Dead Planet set, it comes with plenty of generators allowing the Warden (the GM) to expand the game to their heart's desire.

The content in this small little package can easily fill a long gaming campaign and is rich with flavor.

Buy it now, you will not regret it.

Rating: ❣❣❣❣❣

Recall your favourite playground. Give it a horror theme. That's APOF to me. Intuitive, playful, stirring, and vivid.

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.
