Vehicles of Glory

Without starships, the interstellar civilization of the Thousand Suns would be impossible. Starships travel the jumplines, bringing not only passengers and trade goods, but also protection against pirates and invaders, both human and alien. Starships press onward into Wildspace, seeking out new worlds to explore, settle, and conquer. They are mankind’s greatest inventions.

Vehicles of Adventure

Thousand Suns: Starships is a supplement that provides options for starships — construction, operation, combat, and more — that expand on the rules presented in the Thousand Suns Rulebook. This book gives players and Game Masters alike the tools they need to build and utilize any starship they can imagine, from fast, maneuverable fighters to mammoth dreadnoughts. Designed to add depth witout unnecessary complexity, Thousand Suns: Starships is an invaluable resource for any Thousand Suns campaign.

Hello, I have bought a PDF version of this book and the content suits my needs and I would love to upgrade to Hardcover. Is there a chance to get a discount for a Hardcover book?

Is this the kind of supplement that can quickly be tweaked to play with another system?

Possibly, though that would probably depend on the system.

So we're a year beyond the target update date. Any news?

The author has just submitted some corrections, which are being incorporated to the revised text and layout. I won't make any predictions as to the final release date -- we saw how well that worked previously -- but I don't think it's unreasonable to say we'll see the full revision released sometime this year, perhaps even this summer. If it's any consolation, the revision is minor, consisting mostly of incorporating some errata and correcting typos. The majority of the changes are cosmetic -- new layout and art -- so the current version is perfectly usable.

Are there any plans for a print on demand version for this book?

A revised version of this book, with new art and a new layout, should appear soon. When that happens, a POD option will also be made available.

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.
