Starship Construction Manual, Vol 1. For S&S-2E, (2023 Update)


Please Note: This is a 2023 Product Update. This re-release is a format and art compatibility update for this product. This version includes new artwork and updated stat blocks for closer compatibility to the example starships in the 2E rulebook.  

The Starship Construction Manual, Volume #1: Confederation, is a starship design and customization system for Goblinoid Games' Starships & Spacemen 2E Role Playing Game. Everything you need for designing and building your own Galactic Confederation starship classes for use in the game. This rules supplement introduces a resource management based starship design system, 22 new systems including five new weapons, three new starship classes, and one new starship sub-class. This manual also describes ways to customize your starship designs with rules upgrades, retrofits, refits, design flaws and guidelines for fleshing out your own hero ship design.  While designed for use with the Starship & Spacemen 2nd Edition rules this supplement can easily be modified for use in other sci-fi game systems as the mechanics are based on resource management.

Most recent 2023 update cleans up any previous OGL language and updates the Runabout class stat blocks.

Will a print version be made available? Trying to decide whether to buy the PDF now or wait and pick it up on Print+PDF!

Thank you for your interest in our product. There are no plans for a print version to be made. If a print version is considered in the future it will be after all installments in the serious have been completed and will include all volumes in a single edition. The Zangid and Videni volumes are currently in development and will hopefully be completed in the next year (the reason behind this update and re-release). Thanks again for your support.

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.
