Jovian Chronicles (Mekton)


Strapped in to your cockpit, you impatiently wait for the launch signal. Suddenly, a surge of energy, a blast of light, and your 65-ton war machine is catapulted into the vastness of space. Skillfully, you search the silent void around you for signs of the intruder: there!

Thrusters at full power, you bring your massive railgun to bear, already dodging a hail of missiles launched by the black exo-armor. As your opponent's armored hide buckles under the multiple hits, its powerplant explodes in a blinding ball of light. the computer confirms the kill as you recognize the CEGA emblem on the attacker's wingman...

The Jovian Chronicles is a new universe sourcebook for the acclaimed Mekton II role-playing game. Greatly inspired by Japanese science-fiction animation, it is the first in a line of modules and sourcebooks that will take you beyond the confines of planet Earth to discover a solar system on the brink of war. Along the way, the players will interact with a rich cast of characters and possibly alter forever the destiny of the Jovian Confederation, if not the human race!

Is it compatible with Mekton Zeta?

Not exactly... it was made when Mekton II was out and they added some of their own optional systems that Zeta would also touch on. Fans have converted the write-ups to Zeta stats, though you might need to dig through the Usenet archives at to find them.

You can use the Mecha presented in this and Europa incident as is with the rules of Zeta. Building Mektons for the setting may present cost issues, but otherwise should present no other issues.

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.
