Dossier: Xan Armanis

Watermarked PDF

Meet the Musician…

“Love slides along my body, beneath my clothes and down to the floor…”

Xan began his power ballad, waiting for the response he knew singing this song would generate.

“It's warm, somehow it feels kind of nice…”

Sure enough, the audience began to trigger their glowbes. Floating just above each concertgoer’s head and filling the space around them with a soft, shimmering light, they faded on as he built the song’s tempo. As the glowbes lit up more of the stadium, Xan let his eyes wander about the edges of the crowd. There! Off to the right, almost in the shadows. That same squat, balding man that seemed to be at each concert. Someone who probably wouldn’t be caught dead at a Xan Armanis concert unless he had an ulterior motive. Xan didn’t know what that motive was, but he was on to the interloper. Unknown to the man, Xan sang the last verse of the song to him:

“But I see you, I see you and soon we’ll meet.”

Xan Armanis clawed his way to the top of the subsector music scene from a hardscrabble existence under the glare of disapproving parents. But his enjoyment of fame was short-lived, as he found himself the unwitting participant in some sort of secret conspiracy…one that he knows will be the end of him if he doesn’t find a way to unravel it.

Dossier: Xan Armanis 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 manipulated entertainer 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.
