Archipelago: A Guide To The Islands Of Blue Planet (First Edition)


You'd better be packing more than a suitcase, 'cause this ain't no island vacation.

Archipelago is a tour de force, containing:

Regional maps and descriptions detailing the topography and colonial history of the six major regions of the Pacifica Archipelago.

  • Key maps and detailed descriptions of over twenty colonial, Incorporate, and native settlements.
  • Dossiers on thirteen of the planet's most famous and infamous personalities; their stats, personal histories, and current roles in the colony's frontier society.
  • Twelve new regional entries for the GEO's ongoing Biological Survey, detailing new discoveries within the planet's wondrous and deadly ecology.
  • Descriptions of the geographical, cultural, and colonial features unique to each of the Archipelago's various regions.
  • New Access Denied sections, rich with adventure seeds and background plot developments; more information on the covert activities of the GEO, the Incorporate states, the native resistance effort, and the always enigmatic aborigines.

Archipelago is the first Blue Planet supplement, and brings to life the islands of the Pacifica Archipelago. This book is awash in background, detailing the major people, places, and plots of Poseidon's most heavily colonized region. Players and game moderators alike will find Archipelago an invaluable guide to both the islands of the new frontier and the intrigues of the human colonization effort.

This is a sourcebook for the First Edition of the Blue Planet roleplaying game, originally published by Biohazard Games. The PDF has been produced from a scan of the original book and, as such, may be a larger download than if produced from the digital source files, which are not available. The PDF has been OCR'd to make it searchable. Defects and artifacts are also unavoidable as the conditions of the books used to make scans vary. We have attempted to balance quality and size throughout the process and hope you are satisfied with the result. The Blue Planet First Edition game line is no longer supported.

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.
