Beyond Measure: Shadows of Deep Space


How to use this book.

One of the goals of the cyberpunk element is to instill characters with a sense of advanced technology. Technology is a tool used to augment character form and ability. It enables Bettler-Than-Life simulations and Matrix operators to defy physical reality at nearly every turn. It also bestows the sense of overwhelming permeation, leaving no corner of the universe untouched.

As a cyberdystopia, that sense of being overwhelmed moves us to the very edges of our understanding of social structure and indeed the societal dominance that technology brings with it. It reaches out to touch us no matter where we are. In the realm of science fiction, the cyber-dystopian universes with rare exceptions include the arena of Space.

This book is a suggested guide to the inclusion of space, outer space specifically with an example of optional metaplanar space further in. The technology that is used herein is not elaborated as what-if within the Shadowrun universe but is pre-existing both in earlier editions as well as Shadowrun Sixth Edition.

Beyond Measure seeks to compile most of the material, bringing some of it up to standards of
sixth edition and clarifying several key points from previous editions.

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.
