Meet the Sneak Thief…

2045 hours. Licia knew she had to hurry if she were going to get to Gully’s before he closed. The rain added to the nighttime gloom. Splashing through puddles made more noise than she liked. If she hurried, she could just catch Gully before he closed up for the night, and she could fence the necklace she lifted from that penthouse.

Only one more alley. But then Licia stopped short. Three men were hanging around the opposite end of the alley. She recognized two of them: two of her old associates who’d love to collect the reward the cops have on her.

Why now? Gully’s probably fetching his keys and reaching for the light switch right now! The group finally moved on, laughing at a joke one of them had told, but Licia already knew it was too late. She’d have to keep the necklace until the next day.

As she turned to leave the alley, her eye caught a water-soaked poster on the ground. On it, a smiling Bryana Daltore struck a classic dance pose, backed up by several other dancers. Licia looked carefully at the line of dancers. Once upon a time, one of them might have been her.

All Licia Chan wanted to do was be a dancer, but life kept throwing her curves. After unwanted stints in a factory and the Interstellar Navy, she thought she finally had her chance, but instead she ended up on the streets mere kilometers from her life’s goal. Recruited as a burglar for a gang, Licia — now the infamous thief known as “Shadowdancer” — now feels trapped in a life she never wanted.

Dossier: Shadowdancer 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 sneak thief 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.
