The Starship Warden

Watermarked PDF

They designed the Starship Warden to house, feed and clothe over a million people. To do this the designers outfitted this massive ship, miles long and miles wide, to serve as a home for people offering up quarters and cafeterias, restaurants, and malls all intermingled with a host of features to mimic earth-like conditions, from artificial lakes to fields of crops. Her maiden voyage began with hopes and dreams of a future like nothing humanity had ever seen.

But that was long ago. There has been no contact between the Warden and Earth for many long years for on the ship something went horribly awry. Radiation leaks, singularity, mutations, madness, what it was, only the inhabitants could say. Whatever it was, her inhabitants, those that lived, dwell in a world of want and despair, and when they were not preying upon one another, they fight beastly mutants, cyborgs, self-aware robotic humanoids and all the other creatures who vie for the precious resources of the beleaguered starship.

It is your time now. Rise in the chaos of the Warden and bend its apocalypse to your will -- or be ground away in the lonely quiet of deep space.

Please, for the love of god, optimize this. Almost 300 megabytes for a PDF is unusably large on many tablets - I haven't read this (despite owning it for weeks) because this file is so painful to open/use.

Hello... I am told by our art director and production layout team that 300mb is optimized for this product. It's over 600 pages and full of art, so I guess it takes up a lot of space. Sorry about that! ~ Tim

I don't have any experience with Amazing Adventures, Metamorphosis Alpha, or anything that I think is relevant to Starship Warden. I am more interested in using the ship as a backdrop in other stories (savage worlds, traveller, etc.) Would Starship Warden be suitable for this?

I'm not asking about rules or anything, strictly from a storytelling perspective.

It's a beautiful book and as far as I know the only example of a generation ship in gaming. Put it's also fully populated with Rabbit people and Axe Beak's. So it's hard for me to imagine a story that doesn't look a whole lot like Metamorphosis Alpha (the premise, not the rules).

I should think it would port over to other gaming systems, as far as storytelling, quite easily. Hope this helps! ~ Tim

When the book refers to the "Metamorphosis Alpha" rules, which version is it referring to? thanks!

Does this need the Amazing Adventures Starsiege or any other book?

Hi Robert -- The basic rules are in there but Starsiege will take it further. Thanks! Tim

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.
