Hivers III


Hivers III

If this adventure follows on from Hivers I & II then you will be familiar with the Hivers and how their ship exploded in the upper atmosphere at the end of the previous episode.

If you have not played Hivers I, here is a synopsis.

What the average person understands is this:

The world upon which you stand has been suffering a global famine. When things got desperate a massive food convoy was arranged to import food. As the convoy approached the planet it was attacked and destroyed. Most people blame pirates for the attack, some spacers say it was aliens. One freighter survived the attack but was crippled and the crew sucked out into the vacuum of space. A rescue mission was sent out and the freighter brought back to the orbital station even as it was brought to the planet’s orbital station parts of the ship were breaking up and burning up in the planet’s atmosphere. The spacers that rescued the freighter were a team of off-worlders and the freighter’s cargo of thousands of tons of protein powder were sorely needed.

Hivers III

Hivers III finds the heroes investigating a signal being broadcast from underneath the city to a point in deep space.

Although Hivers I is the start of the adventure there is no requirement for the same characters to have played all three and Hivers II and Hivers III could be played in any order. They are standalone adventures in their own right.

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.
