Dark Metal Tutorial: A Day in the Life of a Rookie

Dark Metal Tutorial: A Day in the Life of a Rookie

Watermarked PDF
A mercenary company is stranded within a star system as a cold war heats up and results in the destruction of the only wormgate in and out of the system. Not wanting to stick around and get caught up in an unprofitable war, they take a multi decade loop out into deep space and back in stasis. They awake to find no new wormgate, fractured civilizations, and broken cities. The Captain's first order of business is to find some real food to eat. And to figure out what the frak is going on.

Are you looking for an adventure? Dark Metal: Mercenaries in the Deep is a solo or co-op, narrative driven, open miniatures science fiction tabletop adventure RPG featuring tactical combat. Players can create their own squad leader and allies, or select from one of the pre-made character sets. The gamer provides their own minis, terrain, and dice from their existing collection to create the experience. Movement is either distance or hex based and the board is created by the player based on the scenario's instructions.

This is a new player tutorial for the rpg that runs through the basics of how movement, firing, and the gamebook integrate together. Check out the full game here!

Where is the RPG? I thought this was a minis game when I read it.

The RPG is in review with DTRPG, and should be released shortly. This is a tutorial which runs through the basic rules of movement and combat for the game. The same tutorial is also included with the full RPG.

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.
