Angari: Secrets for Sale


I tell you, there's something I just don't trust about the squids. Yeah, that's what I said, squids! Report me to the Tolerance committee if you want but Angari have got tentacles instead of ears. That's pretty squidy to me. And they smell like swamp water too...

Yeah, I've seen ‘em, and smelt ‘em, up close. I was a gunnery officer back when we hit Chintaro -the second time, not the first- and got captured once they smashed our fleet. They must have known we were coming, how else could they have beaten us so easily? I know, I know, it was a "tactical stalemate", but the Imperium's gone so let's face it; they kicked us around their whole solar system and didn't even bother to chase us once we turned and ran.

Angari deal in secrets get it? Archive information; shake all those little facts around until they discover new ways for their clients to use them, who knows what they might figure out by looking at the patterns. All I know is; they started pounding on us as soon as we entered their space, so they must have known the wheres and whens for the fleet before hand. And the stuff their ships could do... If they had come out to fight things might have gone differently with the R'Tillek.

Sure, they treated me pretty decent when I was a POW, and they sent me home way faster than we did their people, but those Angari were strange. They have this other language you know. Maybe telepathy or some kind of radio signal, I'm not sure, and I doubt anybody is really. They all can hear it, but only some of them can "broadcast" I guess you'd call it. So sometimes they'd just stand around, those tentacles twitching like knotted braids of hair with minds of their own, while they got their marching orders. It's creepy as all hell, like one of those monster movies where something takes over the townsfolk and turns them into zombies.

You know what? I bet that's why they mostly stay close to home. They're never really alone when with their own kind so maybe they don't handle solitude all that well. The rest of us are probably pretty lucky if that's true. And I guess that makes the Angari who actually do venture out into the big wide galaxy their version of weirdoes or kooks.
Something to think about the next time the Angari ambassador drives by the shop...

Transcript of interview with Sgt. Gregor Marne (ret)

Angari: Secrets for Sale introduces a new race for the Reign of Discordia setting. Though intended to fit within the overarching themes explored by Reign of Discordia, Narrators seeking to adapt the Angari to their own space opera, or at least space based, campaigns should find little difficulty. By both instinct and inclination most Angari prefer to stick close to home. For this reason their influence on their neighbors proves quite subtle and easy to overlook. This makes it relatively easy to simply place the Angari into any empty solar system and claim they had always lived there.

To outsiders the Angari seem very mysterious. A race in love in with secrets, demonstrating technology which most others cannot use let alone comprehend, pursuing an enigmatic agenda, the Angari present themselves as a puzzle to the rest of the galaxy, one which they refuse to solve. This gives Narrators the luxury of coming up with their own answer to that fundamental question; what are the Angari up to?

Angari: Secrets for Sale offers up information and new game content suitable for whatever use the Narrator wishes to put them. Section one presents the Angari as a playable race ready for immediate introduction into a campaign whether as heroes, antagonists or something in between. Section two, focusing on the Angari fleet, introduces new ships and equipment for those ships which makes them equally useful as allies or opponents in a campaign.

"This gives narrators the luxury of coming up with their own answer." Yeah, right. Stopping with the creative work where it becomes hard. Take a look at Eclipse Phase, please. They do not provide one answer to their questions, but several, and if the gamemaster doesn't like any of these, they can still come up with their own.

File Size:

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.
