GURPS Classic: Terradyne


Terradyne! In the 22nd century, the mighty interplanetary conglomerate is the unchallenged ruler of extraterrestrial space. Its only rival for control of the solar system is the UPOE, the global government of the teeming and environmentally-threatened Earth. Will Terradyne use its economic and technological superiority to save Earth, or destroy it?

GURPS Terradyne is a detailed and realistic setting for exciting near-future roleplaying with GURPS Space. Tame the savagely-awakened terraformed planet of Mars . . . engage in high-powered industrial espionage in Terradyne's sub-lunar headquarters . . . foil smugglers and saboteurs in the mines of Mercury or on the moons of Saturn . . . try to survive on an ever more crowded and desperate Earth . . . or help humanity make its first tottering steps towards the stars! With GURPS Terradyne, the whole solar system becomes an adventure setting!

GURPS Terradyne includes detailed descriptions of 22nd-century interplanetary society – technology, government, economics, etc. – plus maps and descriptions of the important planets and moons of the solar system.

From the Martian frontier to the edge of interstellar space, GURPS Terradyne is your guide to man's greatest adventure.

(This is a digital reprint of a supplement designed for GURPS Third Edition.)

Want to buy this at some point for the cover art alone.

I had no idea what this was, and I was an old GURPS player BITD. Wow - this would make a nice mix-in with GURPS Transhuman Space as well as GURPS Alpha Centauri and best of all, TSR's old Buck Rogers XXVC game if you want to add spandex & bubble helmets to the mix.

Scanned image
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.
