Your journey to the Farthest Star awaits!

No. Lulu option is out for now; working on other POD options. Drivethru and Blurb are likely candidates. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Waiting on a proof to arrive. It's looking good for a color hardcover to be available soon from Drivethru!

No problem at all. Bought your B&B2E and will be getting Farthest Star at some point, too. Thanks for writing the rules!
Listened to a podcast interview with you and decided to finally purchase some of your rules.

Could you explain the differences between Void Pirates, Blasters & Bulkheads, and Farthest Star?

FS and VP use a faster resolution mechanism. Where B&B uses a two step resolution mechanic (roll to hit, then roll to damage), FS and VP resolve hit and damage in one exchange of dice rolls.

FS as a rule set has a lot more meat on its bones than VP. It includes: more RPG-like character generation (including no points costs), full Solo rules, PvP rules, revised combat rules, species design rules, six complete scenarios, and a better fleshed-out campaign system.

B&B does offer pretty detailed character creation, but it lacks the solo play and RPG plug-in mechanics.

Let me know if you have any follow-up[ questions, and thanks!

Hope this helps!

Farthest Stars has a deck of cards, how does that effect game mechanics?

So sorry for the late reply on this! The game uses cards for initiative and to help determine some AI model actions. If you have further questions, please let me know. Thanks!

A youtube reviewer (Abraham Zetina) just published part one of a three part review of Farthest Star. It is incredibly thorough!

Format
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.
