Port of Call: Rock Dread

Watermarked PDF

Rock Dread was considered so minor that in its initial survey, it wasn’t even given a name, but an alphanumeric designation. By the time the designator had been bastardized into the world’s name, it was on the front lines of an interstellar war, transformed into a strategic flashpoint bristling with weapons emplacements. After the war, the interstellar government reformed the installations as prisons housing some of the worst offenders in known space. Guarded by uncaring authorities and the planet’s hostile environment, the prisons have become crucibles where only the strong survive and the few who eventually leave — legally or otherwise — take their hard-bitten attitudes with them.

Port of Call: Rock Dread introduces Cepheus Engine and Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG) players to this danger-ridden duality of a planet. Inside is an overview of how the information would appear in the PCs’ library database, physical planetary and system information, a brief history, a look at its administration, technology, and society, a quick guide to crafting characters that would hail from such a place and a diagram of one of the prison facililties.

Port of Call: Rock Dread. Dropping the soap is the least of your worries.

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.
