Blood Red Mars 5e

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

The red sands of Mars are stained dark with the blood of conqueror and conquered, of explorer and savage beast, of alien and native alike. Mars, the Red Planet, named for some long-dead Earthling god of war has lived up to its namesake. Armies march, archaeologists battle the traps of Ancient Mars, and the warbands of the native Chanari raid the towns of the ëcivilizedí caste with impunity. Life on Mars is one of conflict, of gun and blade, of bow and fang, and of ideas. Freedom cry out the Julandri slaves, faith call back the Kastari priestly sects, mine scream the princes and freebooters!

Blood Red Mars (5e) brings the Red Planet in all its blood soaked glory to Rocket Age (5e). Inside you will find:

  • A complete gazetteer of Mars from the Polar Ice Caps, across the Great Silt Sea, and on to the canal valleys and sun-blasted deserts.
  • Dozens of story and character hooks for GMs and players alike.
  • A look at the organizations, both Martian and Alien, active on Mars that serve as friends, foils, and foes.
  • An in-depth look at the Chanari, the only native culture of Mars that still prospers.
  • New character options for Chanari, Silthuri, and Roboman species. 
  • New class options for the Agent, Explorer, Scientist, Scoundrel, and Soldier. 
  • Mars focused backgrounds such as Free Legionnaire or Dethroned Prince.
  • New gear from the Chanari fire lance to the silt raider.
  • Expanded artifacts of Ancient Mars including the portable motion detector and the deadly RAY sword.
  • Deadly flora and fauna of Mars, including the great silt dragon and desert well tree.
  • The Stolen Artifact, a complete adventure for Tier 1 characters, serves as an introduction to Mars.

Can our heroes prosper on Mars or will their blood soak into the sands of the Red Planet?

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.
