Space Pyrates OSR


A space opera role-play game of exploring the hostile galaxy, getting shot to snot and keeping enough wit to sell tennis shoes to the three legged-humanoids. It’s a bad living but great fun.

You can play solo, co-öp or moderated by a GM.

You probably don’t own the ship. The lien will take a thousand lifetimes of hauling trash off the capital world, before you can afford to pay to have the vessel towed to junk reclamation. Capital work won’t pay the bills. Instead, you risk a great deal and venture forth. Exploring as you go. Taking on cargo where it is abundant. Selling that same haul where you find the need. Your ship will grow in size. The first bundle you make selling crap as cargo ensures that. You will find Mystic Relics of dead civilizations, advanced ones. You will find planets made of gold, only to wonder if that metal has any value anywhere. You work to live and love the freedom.

The rulez covers the basics of the character and ship creation. Continue into exploration and space combat, flying your airship in a place that has no air. Not for physics majors who lack a sense of irony. There’s loot but also the tribulation of looking for a welcoming place to sell that Lux. Hint, don't be a wanna-play and try to do everything. Best to recall what grandpa (red) says, slow and steady also carries the best laser pistol. Besides selling cargo you can buy The Cool Stuff. Spending your money to get what Fantasy players would call The One Ring (magic items). “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” (Arthur C. Arthur C Clark)

Old School Revival is fast paced, and you can learn the mechanics by trial and error. Character death being a form of grave error.

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.
