Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the Space Ace Brigade.

The galactic gig economy is alive and thriving. The Galaxy is chock full of things that need doing, anomalies that need exploring, and pickles that need unpickling.

You, dear recruits, are just the ones to do them! You won't live to regret your choice…

Mostly competent and highly motivated is good enough in our books. Remember, the contract is sacred, your debts are real, and the alternatives ain't that great. So buck up and strap in! Adventure Awaits!

Meet Space Aces: TNG!

Space Aces is an homage to an undying love of happy, hopeful, & campy Sci Fi. A modular, lightweight, optimistic sci-fi tabletop adventure game toolbox for GM-led groups, co-op & solo play. Packed with over 75 tables, oracles & procedural generators for creating near-endless light-hearted rollicking romps through space a la Star Trek meets Futurama meets Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.

Space Aces: TNG (The New Guidebook) features simple, sleek, flexible rules with easy & collaborative madlibs spark table style mission generation complete with a twist.

Space Aces utilizes a super simple D20 & D6 rolling system that gives you lots of interesting & evocative results to rolls. A Success can still result in a Complication, and a Failure can still result in a Benefit. Ramp up difficulty, tension, and consequences as the mission goes on with the Heat Level meter. The system features OSR style space adventures with FKR simplicity and PBTA low-prep emergent gameplay that easily supports group, co-op, & solo play!

Hi there,

Trying to print this in booklet form and I'm having trouble. It says it needs a password? Can you help?

Thanks in advance!

Any chance you'll do other genres? (fantasy, cyberpunk, post apocalyptic)?

Very likely! I know there’s a few hacks in the works. My focus for foreseeable future though will be supplements to the core game.

Hi - I have backed this on Kickstarter, and got my copy from it (from the download link on Kickstarter, I mean).
The link you sent me on email, though, will charge me the full price if I wanted to add it to my library here on DTRpg.

I do not know if you plan to ever update it, but in general I'd prefer to have everything I buy (in PDF) as part of my library. Would it be possible?

Absolutely. I believe the link that was emailed out was for a complimentary copy. But just in case, feel free to send me a message on Kickstarter or in the Space Ace Brigade Discord and I’ll get you sorted out.

Everything sorted out. Apparently the discount expires after a some time (a day)? But there was a message in my DriveThrough in my notification box and when I clicked on the link the product was added again to my basket for free.

Thanks and sorry for my misunderstanding, all is ok now.

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.
