Dossier: Brady Vasilyev

Watermarked PDF

Meet the Penitent…

Brady Vasilyev paused plowing to wipe beads of sweat from his forehead. He glanced up at the planet’s twin suns. Looked like it was going to be another hot day; he’d have to redouble his efforts to finish the plowing and back to the farmstead in time. He reflexively scanned the horizon, a practice carried over from his days in the interstellar infantry. A distant flock of birds drew his attention by deciding to take wing at that moment. They weren’t a threat. If anything, he was the only threat for kilometers around. His mind traveled back unbidden to Pondo, and that terrible day that Brady credited with changing him forever and that eventually led him to this world, at this time, to seek redemption…

“Brady?” came the small voice from behind. He spun; widened eyes locked on the youngest daughter of the family that had graciously forgiven him. He hadn’t heard her approach.

Small eyes sparkled up at him. “Ma says come and eat lunch.”

A smile spread across the ex-soldier’s face. “Sure, kiddo,” he answered. Scooping her up and settling her on Shuki’s back, he began releasing the plow from the harness.

A terrorist attack on Brady Vasilyev’s homeworld connected to the interstellar government’s traditional enemy launched a war…and a young man on a journey of hatred and nationalism. But as the hell of war became personal, he wound up embarking on a journey of redemption; a redemption he found in the arms of those he once called enemy.

Dossier: Brady Vasilyev is a short character sketch for 2D6 science fiction RPGs such as Cepheus Engine and the Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG), although it’s usable with other systems with a little work. 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 repentant ex-soldier 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.
