Heavy Gear Revitalized – Southern Vehicle Compendium 2

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to Heavy Gear Revitalized! Until now the older Heavy Gear ebooks available on DriveThruRPG have been scanned copies of the original printed books. Dream Pod 9 is happy to announce the release of high-quality electronic format ebooks for the Heavy Gear Classic Roleplaying & Tactical Game publications. Made possible by the team of Michael Butt (Project Manager) and Brad Fischer (Roaring Mouse Graphics) who converted the old Macintosh Pager Maker files into modern Adobe format. A big thank you to Michael and Brad for taking on the massive effort to Revitalize all the old Dream Pod 9 Heavy Gear products.

Caporal Nadia Venier positioned herself at the top of the dune and removed the cap on her rifle's sight. Low-light amplification and a digital telescopic lens brought her within spitting distance of the Northern formation. This was a big advance - Aller MBTs, Klemm and Tyburr tanks, it was an impressive display. But she was interested in the vehicle protected by a squadron of Jaguar Gears. Clustered with antennae, it was a Murdock command vehicle, most likely carrying the regimental commander.

Breathing evenly, she squeezed the trigger. Instantaneously, a low-energy laser beam reached out to the vehicle and bounced back. A microchip calculated exact coordinates from the infinitesimal lag time and a backpack comm system relayed those to the unit waiting on her.

Five kilometers away, a massive Vandal artillery platform downloaded the coordinates and let loose one of its Hellbringer missiles. The hypervelocity rocket bridged the gap between attacker and target in seconds.

Caporal Venier had just slid down the back of the dune when the Hellbringer hit.

The North was about to have a bad day.

The Vehicle Compendium series showcases the most common pieces of vehicular equipment used by the armed forces of Terra Nova in the 62nd century. This second volume contains the tanks and artillery pieces originally found in the Field Guide S2 and the Tactical Field Support, along with a detailed recognition chart and ready-to-play record sheets. In all, this second volume includes:

  • Caïman and its variants (Crocodile, Support Crocodile and Alligator).
  • Elan (and its Evil Eye variant).
  • Hun (plus the Ballista, the Hittite, the Ostrogoth, the Celt and the Recon Hun).
  • Visigoth (including the Vandal, the Blitz Visigoth and the Visigoth KHAN).
  • Barnaby (and the Mother Barnaby).
  • Artemis (and its variant, the Laser Artemis).
  • Nightingale (plus the NBC Nightingale).
  • Jackrabbit (with one of its variants, the Jackrabbit B).
  • Field Artillery gun.

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.
