Hello Explorers!

Welcome to issue 32 of the Frontier Explorer. We start off with a “Blast from the Past” and a play report of an old Star Frontiers game from decades ago.  The “Blast from the Past” series presents articles found on dead Star Frontiers websites or other places from before the magazine started and the early days of the game.  This issue has three such articles, the a-ready mentioned play report, a system for resolving investigation of alien technology (or any complex task, really), and an in-setting card game you can bring to your table.

We have two articles on aircars and new flying vehicles by Jerry Boucher and Oscar Rios. Oscar also gives us a look at the life of a typical, non-adventuring vrusk.

The big article this issue is the first of a two-part series that looks at using radiation effects in the game by Joe Cabadas.  The second half will be in issue 33.

Tom Verreault gives us a bevy of articles including reviews of a sci-fi map designer and Star Frontiers compatible miniatures, another character archetype, several bits of equipment, and finally, a detailed look at the published material on the Scree Fron system and its implications/extrapolations.

We round out the issue with our usual comics by Scott Mulder.  Unfortunately, due to some unexpected events, Jurak Hangna was unable to transmit an article for this issue, but we should expect one from him next time.  Which reminds me, I should check in with Alex Stone to see if he has any new adventures to report.

The full article list is:

  • Playing the Bad Guys
  • Frag Maps Review
  • Have Aircar, Will Travel …
  • Zoomers
  • The Vrusk Hustler
  • Radiation Hazards in the Frontier – part 1
  • Titan Rising: 2299  - episode 25
  • Alien Technology Flowcharts
  • An Industrious Life
  • IR Masking Skeinsuit and Military Toxyrad Gauge
  • The Expanded Medkit
  • Starbuckaroos
  • Soaring to New Heights on Hakosoar
  • Reaping New Star Frontiers Miniatures from Reaper
  • The Escape Plan #10

Grab your copy, sit back, and enjoy. And as always, keep exploring!

The Frontier Explorer is a “Pay What You Want” product.  As always, the Frontier Explorer is free (and always will be) and you don’t have to feel guilty about just downloading it and enjoying it for free.  Please do.  That said, if you want to help support the magazine, the pay what you want option allows you to make a contribution. Think of it as a “tip jar” or donation plate.  Just don’t feel like you need to make a contribution.  If you want to be a regular supporter, you might consider supporting our Patreon campaign as that not only helps support the magazine, it gets you early access to some of the articles and to each finished issue about a week before it becomes generally available (details on Patreon are in the issue).

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.
