Let the Odyssey Begin!

Galactic Odyssey is a fast paced game of daring space battles, swashbuckling adventures, and intriguing personal conflict set in the far future of the Milky Way galaxy. The Terrans have found their way into the stars, and though they proclaim to be an “advanced” species, they haven’t lost their lust for dominance or greed for wealth. Scheming to conquer each new world they discover, the Humans attempt to enslave or destroy nearly every species they meet. These “aliens” began fighting back in hopes of securing their freedom from this plague of Human tyranny. Will you be one of the few that finally turns back the tide of the Terran Galactic Initiative?

The Player's Handbook gives you everything you need to create your character, be it a new alien species or a human who is sympathetic to the galaxy's plight at the hands of their kind. The Player's Handbook includes descriptions of the gear, robots, vehicles and starships that are available to your character. There is also a section on the rules for personal, vehicle and starship combat, and information on the galaxy and the worlds and species found within it.

The preview file and the product description for this game does not seem to give any indication as to what the core rules mechanics are.

Hmmm, you're right. I will fix that. However, Galactic Odyssey uses my 4C Expanded rules set, a retro-clone of the 4C System, which is a retro-clone of the old Marvel Superheroes FASERIP system created by TSR back in the 1980s. I added a lot of extra rules to the original 4C System to make 4C Expanded more adaptable to skill based games like Galactic Odyssey. The game uses percentile dice for all resolution checks on a chart called the Master Table that gives a degree of success based upon the action Rank or level.

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.
