Easier Sci-Fi Play

Selected Option:
Softcover, B&W Book
PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

I was asked to put down my thoughts on running better science fiction games and at first, I wasn't sure what to write, sci-fi is so broad a genre. How do you encompass everything from dystopian cyberpunk to the optimism of Star Trek?

What this book contains is 17 mini-essays. The first half is all about reducing the scope of your games and campaigns. Sci-fi is such a broad genre that the more you narrow your scope the greater clarity you get of what your game is going to be about. The second half is all about building your campaigns up. 

I do cover some problems I have experienced with running science fiction games, but the real use of this book is to help you look at your campaigns with fresh eyes and see if you can make them better. 

The final chapter of the book is a checklist of the ideas I have covered to help you build better campaigns.

I suggest watching the video below to get a better understanding of what this book offers. As normal, you can read the entire book in the full size preview if you wish.

Yes, that is correct. I always do this because DTRPG does not do community copies and not everyone can afford to buy everything we put out and I don't want people to buy something that isn't right for them, or not what they expected.

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.
