The Marches Adventures 1-5


The Spinward Marches, out on the Imperial frontier, is a borderland sector where even the humble can find great fortune and exciting voyages. Marches Adventures 1-5 provides a set of adventures that can be inserted into any ongoing campaign set in this region of the Charted Space universe, while showcasing the Spinward Marches and some of the worlds within.

Inside you will find:


High and Dry: A classic adventure designed to kickstart an entire campaign. The Travellers have been gifted a detached duty ship by the Scout Service, which will be theirs to use as they see fit. The only catch is… they will have to find it first.

Mission to Mithril: The Travellers land at a rudimentary starport, only to find their vessel disabled and the base strangely empty. As they explore, a distant distress beacon is detected, but reaching it requires an overland trek. Having located the survivors, the Travellers discover their problems are only just beginning…

Search and Rescue: Working search and rescue in the Gorram system is a complex business. Gorram is Red Zoned to protect its emerging culture, with passing ships directed to refuel at Gorram Station. For the Travellers, a contract to run the search and rescue operation is a legal way to bypass the interdiction. After weeks of patrols, the Travellers receive a GK signal. A ship is in distress, somewhere in the Red Zone. The ship is crippled, its occupants in mortal danger, and the Travellers must act fast to save them.

Artemis Wept: The Travellers are delivering a breeding herd of critically endangered animals for Project Artemis, located on the backwater world of Pyramus. There they can relax and enjoy the pleasures offered – dinner with the local noble, pony-riding in the countryside… and saving an entire species from extinction.

Safari World: A wealthy industrialist needs a qualified crew to accompany him on a hunting expedition to an uncharted world. His prey? A magnificent and mysterious trapper species said to roam the planet. The safari takes on a new dimension when the Travellers discover they are not alone. The residents of 567-908 have eluded discovery for their entire existence, and now that they have been found, they might just be the key that helps the Travellers find their quarry.

A few tweaks, nothing huge.

29.99 is a reasonable price for a paperback. 29.99 is not a reasonable price for a watermarked pdf.

I believe the statblocks for the creatures on page 11 (12 in the pdf reader) are missing - Walston, Deep-water Bakarr and Alderson's Hunter all had stats in the original adventure not found in this version.

I bought it right away since it has a selection of adventures that I was considering running anyway however some of the artwork is missing, with illustrations replaced by silhouettes, first example on page 33. I can't imagine the original adventures were sold like this so will there be a pdf update to a fully illustrated version?

Correcting my earlier comment. The pdf is showing correctly with all artwork on my ipad, so it looks like a problem with the reader on my computer, the file is ok.

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.
