The Asturia Incident


Escape in the Lap of Luxury....

Vanno del Rask had to escape Gorvann starport and reach Naava Prime. If Rayzu Syndicate operatives tracked him down they’d interrogate him to find out how much he’d discovered of their plans to destabilize the sector government for their own profit. As an elite herald for House Seravis—part intelligence agent, part diplomat, part courier—he could handle any challenge with class and grace. But a little luck always helped, too...and he’d stumbled upon some. He charmed and bribed his way aboard a luxury cruiser named Asturia, leaving Gorvann without enemy operatives noticing.

You are Vanno del Rask. Now that you’ve escaped the Rayzu Syndicate thugs, it’s smooth sailing to complete your mission...or is it?

The Asturia Incident is a solitaire adventure gamebook, an interactive story in which you play the role of the main character. Instead of reading straight through like a normal book, you follow instructions leading you from one numbered entry to another, each describing situations, offering choices, and resolving actions to further the story using the OpenD6 game system. You’ll need a handful of six-sided dice; a pencil and some note paper can help you keep track of Vanno’s status, clues he discovers, or other information worth remembering.

Peter Schweighofer is a veteran roleplaying game designer who previously worked on West End Games’ D6-system Star Wars Roleplaying Game...even writing several solitaire adventures. The Asturia Incident merges his admiration for the classic Traveller game, familiarity with the OpenD6 system, and a love of science fiction stories.

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.
