A Galaxy Primer for Era Ten


Need to Know Basis

If you buy this booklet, you want to know more about Era Ten, so you don’t look stupid. You might suspect your Ref is cheating you. You could even think it would be fun to Referee your friends in an adventure in deep space. Being a space marine is groovy. Being galactic delvers seems like a rollicking time set to space shanties. Eye roll, anyone?

This material is laid out in an ad hoc order. Era Ten is a millennium in the future and much has changed. I tried to keep the prose focused on having things to do. Nice to know who you can and cannot kill in role-play. Presented here are the important things. I make no guarantees.

What happens if you’ve been playing for a year and have a whole mythos established and BAM page nine-zero, third paragraph, subsection seven says don’t do that? Who’s right here? No one or you. These are your game session. You sometimes need to use your imagination.

If you feel it necessary to adapt everything you find in Era Ten as some form of Gospel, fug you. Even I don’t want to play with you. That’s all too much work and too much rule lawyering. If it’s work, you should be paid. You millennials ought to learn that lesson. Maybe I do as well. I won’t make a dollar royalty from even a hundred downloads. I won’t waste my time being happy and whistling sweet do-da.

Most of you will take what’s here and adapt it to what you already have. You’ll make your own sci-fi campaign or whole rpg. That’s what I truly want. Have some fun breaking things in the fourth millennium.

Written as a companion book for the games Battle Born, Era Ten and Salvage and Recovery, still any GM will easily adapt what’s here to your other favorite role-play game. Besides, you may find science fiction has more to offer than battling an evil empire and trying to sell a cargo of fruit.

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.
