Dossier: Pierre Traveler

Watermarked PDF

Meet the Vagabond…

Pierre stuck his head out of the shuttle hatch and breathed in the air of the alien planet. A warm, gentle breeze wafted a faint scent of…berries? A bloated orange sun hung in a near-cloudless sky, and the weather on this world was warm — unlike the last one, with its thirty-centimeter snowdrifts.

A gruff alien voice from behind prodded him through the hatch. Making his way down the portable stairs onto the starport landing pad, he consulted his handcomp for directions to the hostel. The device was no help; apparently, it hadn’t updated yet. He decided to ask directions of one of the natives and selected a two-meter tall fellow in what seemed to be a uniform.

“Excusez-moi monsieur,” he started, then stopped short as the being looked at him quizzically. He quickly repeated the phrase in Interstellar Common, then as best he could, asked directions to the hostel.

Even after all this time traveling, he marveled at the infinite shapes, sizes and types of the various species around him. The trip he took as a child overseas — that first kindled his wanderlust — was nothing compared to the wonders he saw and the people he met now.

Dossier: Pierre Traveler is an 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 personality sketch, character motivation, character stats usable for CE and the OSFRPG, and suggestions for using this cosmic drifter 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.
