QUILL.exe: Transmissions from the Black

Suggested Price $1.00


QUILL.exe: Transmissions from the Black presents an alternative science fiction setting for Quill: A Letter-Writing Roleplaying Game for a Single Player, wherein the characters are typing up transmissions to send from their deep space exploration/colony vessel. When used with the basic rules from Quill, this supplement provides six new characters, three new skills, and four new scenarios.

Take on the role of a Diplomat, Stowaway, Artificial Intelligence, Colonist, Engineer, or Captain! Plead with a recalcitrant Supply Officer, make First Contact with an alien vessel, negotiate with a Colony that you might call home, leave a message of warning and hope to future explorers, and reach out to the one you left behind! Boost your signal strength, pick a subroutine to help you write, and start typing so that you can send your transmission across the void between stars.

Hopefully it gets a warm reception.

QUILL.exe: Transmissions from the Black was written as part of National Game Design Month 2020.

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.
