Bug Ship: A Scifi Micro Chapbook RPG

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.50

A derelict ship left floating in space. You fear it may be infested with a race of bug aliens who attach to a host ship and feed off the crew. Can you exterminate these bugs before they eat you?

Bug Ship is an ultra-simple science fiction roleplaying game where you explore a derelict ship.  It can be played solo or with a traditional GM if you so wish. This game is based on the extremely popular grimdark fantasy Micro Chapbook RPG system.

These rules are specially designed for solo play on a grid map or graph paper but may also be used as quick and simple rules for a traditional GM run RPG game. Combine with other Micro Chapbook RPGs for extra options!  

This file includes both the full-color and printer-friendly versions.

This looks like fun. I do have a question:
When one encounters multiple aliens in a room, I would assume they all attack you. Do you roll versus each one in turn, roll against only one until it's killed then start on the next? Do they chase you from room to room?

Lanse, thanks for playing the game! In a room, you attack only 1 enemy per attack phase. (1 ranged and 1 melee attack per round). So, only the 1 enemy wounds you. Aliens also don't chase you from room to room, but will still be in the room if you return to it. I hope that helps! For even more clarification, you can check out the Scifi Micro Chapbook RPG deluxe core rulebook.

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.
