Welcome to Clement Sector!

In 2210, scientists discovered a wormhole allowing travel to the opposite side of the Milky Way galaxy.  Once across, exploration teams discovered worlds far more suited to human habitation than those in star systems nearer to Earth.  Were they terraformed by some unknown race?  Are they just a coincidence in the vast diversity of the universe?

Over the ensuing years humans left Earth and began to colonize these worlds.  Nation-backed colonies.  Corporate colonies.  People who simply no longer felt compelled to remain on Earth.  The best and brightest.

In 2331, the unthinkable happened.  The wormhole collapsed leaving those in Clement Sector cut off from Earth.  Now these new worlds and new civilizations must stand on their own.

The year is 2342.  Adventure awaits!

Clement Sector Third Edition is the ultimate version of one of the fastest growing space opera games out there.  Powered by the Cepheus Engine, this book contains everything you need to run a Clement Sector game.  This new edition contains all of the setting information you need as well as an entire rules set.  

Clement Sector contains a history of the sector and humanity's expansion in the sector.  It has detailed maps showing all 16 subsectors of Clement Sector as well as subsectors from the nearby Ariel and Tranquility Sectors.

Clement Sector also details the Zimm Drive, the method of stellar travel in this setting, and showcases six commonly seen starships.  Deckplans, art, and statistics are provided for the Rucker-class merchant ship, Luxury-class yacht, Trailblazer-class scout, Atlas-class freighter, Starlight-class merchant, and Farragut-class destroyer.  This book also contains the detailed character generation for which Clement Sector is known as well as a handy NPC generator.  

Clement Sector is also filled with campaign and adventure seeds to allow you and your players to jump straight into the action.  

Welcome to the ultimate edition of Clement Sector!  Adventure awaits you!

Hey guys this might be a strange request but will save the low vision/blind community a lot of work but would it be possible for you guys to at some point update your PDFs so that they are screen reader friendly. This can be done by running the pdf through adobe accessibility checker. Let me know if that is in the realm of possibility.

This book replaces the Core Setting Book and The Rules. It also includes the information from Balancing Act and Almighty Credit.

As it stands currently, we have not yet revisited the faction metagame.

No offense but the latest update was supposed to amend Reloading on p.387 but instead removed reloading entirely, leaving a blank space!

Reloading was moved to be a minor action and is now listed there.

Hi John,

OK, thanks...I've spotted it now on p.385, but it's still under "Reload (Personal Combat) 387" in the index.

Can I ask that in the future when there's an update on any Clement Sector stuff that you could include an errata/amendment document with the update so us with the hard copies can amend those when needed without having to try and compare a massive amount of pages to locate the change[s]?

Cheers,

Mark

We'll work on something to try to get all of the errata in one place. Chances are quite high though that I won't update it again.

Please clarify this portion of the description: "contains all of the setting information you need as well as *an* entire rules set".
Curious about the use of "an" rather than "the" here.

Does that mean "a rules set, presumably that differs from Cepheus"
Or does it mean "*the* Cepheus engine rules set"
Or perhaps it means something else?

I have the current Cepheus Deluxe print and wonder why an entire set of rules would be included here. Do they duplicate Cepheus Deluxe, modify or extend it? Or if something else is included what is it?

I guess I'm really asking because a 600+ page book seems really large. It seems to me that breaking it apart into the rules portion and the setting portion might be nicer to have as a physical copy.

It is our own rule set that is based on the original Cepheus Engine by Samardan Press, but differs from it in several ways. It is not related to Stellagama's Cepheus Deluxe.

The second edition had the rules and setting in two different books, but we got so many complaints that things were in multiple books that third edition comes in once volume.

I like a lot of number crunching in my rules set....I was curious just how crunchy are your rules compared to Traveller 5 or Gurps regarding building all manner of vehicles, world building, weapons, etc.?

There's no "building" rules in the main rules so there's not much of that sort of "crunch" within this book. The only "building" rules that are in this book are basic worldbuilding and animal "building".

However, for those who like such things, there's a lot of crunch in the starship building rules (which can be found here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/382603/Anderson-and-Felix-Guide-to-Naval-Architecture-Third-Edition)

and in the star system/world building rules here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/243606/Unmerciful-Frontier-The-CCA-Sourcebook-Third-Edition

Not to seem ungrateful for your wanting to put out the best product for us!! And I'm only speaking for myself. But I'd much rather have a book that's got a few typos and an error or two for a while (like, weeks even), then get one perfected copy with all known fixes that I only need to replace the current file with once. But every time a new version comes out, I have to update the copy on my PC, on my tablet, on my cloud backup, and it's just annoying (first world problem, I know). Thank you for the diligence, thought! ^_^

Yes. A few errors have been spotted over the last few days that escaped us and we've fixed those errors. The main ones were a sentence omitting how to roll for Aging (and the consequence of missing said roll) and description text for Battle Armor.

I bought the 2nd edition and you said you would offer a discount to any 2nd-edition buyers. But my permission to receive e-mail from Independence Games was off. It is on now, but I may have missed your notice. Did you send it through the DriveThruRPG system? Or through regular e-mail?

Soon! There will be a softcover standard, hardcover standard, and a hardcover premium. These have been submitted to the printers and we're just awaiting approval and proofs.

With covid and the holidays, this may take a little longer.

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.
