The Colony

Watermarked PDF

The future. After a world-wide, virulent pandemic dubbed The Fourth Horseman wiped out civilisation, survivors at Ares, the international base on Mars, listened helplessly as humanity sickened and died. Communication became erratic before ceasing completely. The colonists were on their own, the last living people... as far as they knew.

The people of Ares no longer think of themselves as being from Earth. Nor do the aggressively genetically-engineered young adults of the Fourth Generation look strictly human any more: larger, thicker skulls, thicker bones, and big eyes. Sometimes, they catch the older people staring at them. Sometimes, even their parents stare at them.

Unfortunately, an unexpected side effect of the genetic manipulation was a boom in the birth of twins, triplets, and quads. Mars has too many strong, and loud, and disrespectful children, and there is friction between them and the adults.

The number of young adults in the Fourth Generation is too high. It is time to expand; it is time to take back the Earth… It belonged to them once; it will belong to them again.

A setting for the Everywhen RPG. Includes an introductory adventure, 6 pregens and a blank character sheet.

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.
