Port of Call: Vanessa


Vanessa is a small world sheathed in thick ice which hides a liquid life-bearing ocean underneath. But the ice can’t hide the heated desire for corporate interests to plunder the moon of its abundant natural resources, never mind the objections of the coldly rational scientists who staff the world’s research station. So far, the cold war between the scientists and the miners has been confined to courtrooms and legislative chambers, but the battle for the world’s destiny is slowly heating up as each side refuses to back down from its plans.

Port of Call: Vanessa introduces Cepheus Engine and Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG) players to this hidden ocean world. Inside is an overview of how the information would appear in a library database, physical planetary and system information, a brief history, a look at its technology and society, a map of the planet, a map of the system, and an illustration of the research station.

Port of Call: Vanessa. The cold environment is heating up quickly.

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.
