Penumbra: A Trophy Dark Incursion


A planet poisoned by its people’s lifeline. The people’s need for just a few more drops of that poison. A remote, dangerous chance to discover a new reserve. As a member of a team of disposable drillers left alone on an asteroid to take that chance, the hope for your home colony that you lost long ago is now dwindling what little hope you reserved for yourself. If you can just find and secure this last energy source, it may let them live a few decades longer, but more importantly, you could earn enough money to leave this place far behind before you have to watch it destroy itself…

Penumbra is a contemplative one-shot adventure for Jesse Ross’s Trophy Dark in which the players, a rag-tag group of burnt-out Sap drillers forced into the role of last-minute heroes, will struggle to cross a desolate asteroid and add a few final grains of sand to the Colony's proverbial hourglass. A bleak and lonely exploration of whether to fight the endthis book contains all of the rules you need to play, including all-new character creation options.

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.
