Shipyard: Percheron-class Heavy Trader

Watermarked PDF

The Percheron-Class Heavy Trader is a versatile, older-model cargo vessel intended for independent bulk mercantile operations. Originally designed for use by Belters as an ore carrier and processor, it came into its own as a vehicle for autonomous trading operations. Some ship owners have taken advantage of the ship’s versatility to convert their Percherons to passenger liners, a light prison transport, and a scientific survey vessel. But the majority of captains find that its usual role as a small bulk carrier puts credits in their pocket.

Shipyard: Percheron-Class Heavy Trader is intended for 2D6 games such as Cepheus Engine and the Original Science-Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG), although it could be used in any science-fiction milieu with a few modifications.

    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.
