Coriolis: Hyaenas of Odacon


The Odacon system, scene of the most terrible battles of the Portal Wars. An ancient treasure awaits the crew, which could solve all their problems - or seal their doom.

Hyaenas of Odacon is a short, action-packed adventure for Coriolis – The Third Horizon. It takes the PCs to one of the darkest corners of the Third Horizon: the doomed system of Odacon. They will enter the cursed ash belt to salvage a long-forgotten relict – and bring the darkness unwillingly onto their ship. What begins as a mysterious treasure hunt turns into survival horror.

Hyaenas of Odacon was first written as a one-shot for a local convention and was later run again on several occasions. It is an excellent introduction to Coriolis – The Third Horizon and covers many aspects of the game. The PDF also offers five pre-generated PCs and their old salvage cruiser Hyaena. But you can run it with your crew and their ship, too.

This module is an English translation. The German original is available exclusively for Patreons of Uhrwerk Verlag.

About me (the author)

I’m a novelist, playwright, and show director from Germany. And a nerd and a professional RPG author with over 15 years of experience. I published more than three dozen books for Das Schwarze Auge / The Dark Eye, including 15+ adventures and scenarios, three novels, and several short stories. Some of them won awards. Other works have been published or planned for SplittermondForbidden Lands, and more.

The German crowdfunding brought me in contact with Coriolis and made me a fan immediately. For over two years, I have been running a successful campaign in the Third Horizon now.

Auf Deutsch bekommen man das über den Uhrwerk Verlag, da habe ich meines auch her. Ich muss sagen sehr gutes, spannendes Abenteuer, gerne mehr davon.
You can get it in German from Uhrwerk Verlag, which is where I got mine. I have to say it's a very good, exciting adventure, I'd like more of it.

Rule System(s)
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.
