Tools for Gamers, Writers, and Worldbuilders: Moons of Gas Giants

Suggested Price $4.99

Of all the settings your characters could find themselves in, few have the grandeur, danger, or richness of a gas giant’s moon system: Dozens of worlds, deadly radiation belts, beautiful ring systems, a wealth of fuel and resources, and the storm cloaked gas giant itself, all crammed into a volume that Neil Armstrong's Apollo capsule could have crossed in a week.

Drawing heavily on the real-world exploration of the exotic and varied moons of Saturn and Jupiter, as well as recent exoplanet discoveries around other stars, Moons of Gas Giants is a system neutral resource for designing a location in a gas giant system, a major moon, or even an entire system of them. Compatible with Traveller and other classic 2d6 RPG’s, this book will also serve as an invaluable resource for more general world-builders such as authors, designers, or artists.

John Freeman is PhD physicist, who acts as advisor for world-builders when they want some real world details to help their creations. This series owes it's existence to the GMs, writers, artists, and even historians who collaborated with him (and who keep him in touch with the real world, and supply him with snacks).

Product Information
File Size:
1.7 MB
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.
