40x30 Multi-Level Battlemap - Excavated World Seed Spaceship


Excavated World Seed Spaceship

An excavation has broken into an ancient cavern, filled with glowing plants of otherworldly colours. While it first appears to be a natural formation, closer inspection shows that there is metal plating on the floor, broken support beams, and stairways leading further down. 

Adventure Seed

A mudslide exposed this cave and it’s since become an essential excavation site. You’ve been paid by a scholar to escort him to this remote location from a city, several days travel away. He was invited to join the excavation as the best expert they could find to help them understand what they’ve uncovered. 
When you arrive, the site seems deserted. Venturing inside you are attacked by archaeologists covered with glowing blue and purple plants, their skin matching in colouration and pulsing with specs of light. 
Deeper in, more people are kneeling before a pale, glowing bulb. Plants and flowers are slowly growing over them, but they are not yet as covered as the other archaeologists who first attacked. Their glazed eyes turn towards you as their mouths begin to rasp words...
WHAT’S HAPPENING? The excavation has uncovered an ancient spaceship, one of many sent by aliens to terraform various planets and make their environment habitable. However, this ship crashed and the Seed couldn’t spread life. Now that it’s been exposed to the surface, the Seed is determined to fulfil its purpose of making the planet habitable for its creators—regardless of the fact that life has since evolved. 
The Seed is telekinetic and calls to the minds of surrounding lifeforms to kneel before it and slowly become covered by plants. It can talk with words through the humans it is in the process of changing, but the others roaming the excavation site are too far gone to speak. 
It can only communicate its purpose directly via telepathic visions, such as a barren planet, the ship landing, and life blooming across the world’s surface. If the Seed is killed, the surrounding plant life and the growths on the archaeologists will shrivel and die. However, only those still kneeling near the Seed are unchanged enough to survive it. 
The Seed has first created guards to protect itself, but plans to send those kneeling before it out into the world to spread itself further. When the flowers on their backs bloom with glowing white spores, they will spread and begin to change the rest of the planet.

Product Information

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.
