Medico Service is campaign primer for Cepheus Engine (and other 2D6 based science fiction systems). This book is designed to give the referee guidance on playing a new kind of campaign. With this primer you'll be inspired to start a campaign where the players are not out for themselves, but instead cruising the space lanes with the aim of maintaining the health and wellbeing of the Empire.

Included is a new career path that enrols the PCs in the Medico Service. The service is an arm of the galaxy-spanning Empire that focuses on combatting the evils that befall man, including but not limited to raging epidemics, erupting volcanoes, and dictators enslaving populations.

Inspired by various novels from the golden age of science fiction you'll be able to put your players into a new type of game.

Included in this package is the novel “This World is Taboo” by Murray Leinster. which was the initial inspiration for starting this primer.

This is absolutely fantastic and needed!

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.
