Startown Encounters 3


The heroes have just made planetfall and left the starport grounds (and the protection of interstellar sovereignty) and entered the rough-and-tumble of the community that has grown up next to it. So what’s next?

  • A pair of law enforcers arrest one or more members of the party. When asked why, one of the officers merely offers, “You fit the description.”
  • A young woman accosts one of the PCs, insisting that (s)he is her spouse, missing these past several years, and demanding her back alimony and child support.
  • A severe famine and the local government’s lackluster response to it has sparked a number of brutal food riots, one of which the PCs find themselves in the middle of.

These situations, and many more, are waiting for the intrepid starfarers in the hive of scum and villainy known as Startown!

Startown Encounters is a short supplement for 2D6 science fiction games such as Cepheus Engine, Cepheus Deluxe, and The Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game, although it’s usable with other systems with a little work. The Referee, as always, is the final judge as to whether the supplement is useful and is encouraged to adjust any of the material to suit.

I just started up a group on FB which focuses on science fiction tabletop roleplaying. Your work is the first topic of conversation. You've given me so much joy, I thought I'd start with you.

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.
