This is an adventure for Cepheus Engine.

The Traveler(s) are summoned by messenger to speak with a discrete gentleman on a matter of utmost importance. He would prefer, for reasons which will become apparent later, to speak privately on this matter at the earliest convenience.

He is Navy Commander Hut’Nur of the Olonsean Naval Intelligence Service. He has a mission of a delicate nature which he needs someone of your unique skills. He needs someone not affiliated with the Olonsean government or military to perform a rescue operation.

While the Olonseans are not yet currently at war with the Ilsunsi Directorate just about everyone in the Sonora sector can see the handwriting on the wall. Hostilities are imminent. Both sides have been building up naval and land forces with the expectation of an all out shooting war beginning soon.

Recently an Olonsean Army General disappeared. Whether he has defected, or has been snatched by the Ilsunsi, is not yet known. What is known, however, is that he has extensive knowledge of Olonsean military capabilities and plans. He is a decorated veteran of many previous military campaigns and is believed to be loyal to the Empire. But the Olonsean Government can not afford to take chances. They need this General to be “rescued” and brought back home again....for interrogation....

Olonsean intelligence forces have determined that he is being held on world known as Gumoran which is just beyond the borders of the Sonora sector. This world is a sparsely populated agricultural world off the beaten path. It has always been an independent world but many affluent individuals in the sector own large estates on this world. It generally has been considered sort of a retreat for the rich and famous of the sector who want to get away from it all.

The general is believed to be held at an estate of a wealthy corporate officer of the Purgatory Corporation. This estate is believed to be guarded by at least a company of soldiers if not more. The Olonsean government does not wish to start the war just yet. They would prefer someone not linked to them to perform this mission and bring the general home.

They offer CR 250,000 for his delivery. They will, of course, pay a small amount for his dead body if bringing him home alive is not possible. This offer is CR 50000.

Additionally the Olonsean government offers the traveler(s) the services of five individuals from the penal colony on Ritel III. These individuals have experience and skills deemed necessary by the Olonseans for mission success. The Olonseans also agree to outfit the entire party with whatever gear is deemed necessary by the traveler(s) up to TL 11 with a limit of CR 300000.

This adventure is suitable for play by a single player with a GM.

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.
