Just Add Dice: 50 Modern Ship Cargos

Watermarked PDF

Rick checked off the names on the cargo manifest as the crates and boxes passed him and went into the hull of his plane.

Today more than ever, the ability to ship goods world wide has led to the creation of a new global market place. But with this new surge in shipping, old problems have resurfaced. From pirates to natural disasters to civil unrest, much threatens the shipping routes of today and there is just as much need for brave, daring young adventurers to become involved in shipping today as in times past. However, with this involvement comes one question: so what is it that we are carrying anyway? To answer this question, healing Fireball Publications is proud to present another in our line of Just Add Dice products. This one is dedicated to the generation of cargos for a more modern or near-future setting. So, as always, we invite you to grab your dice and spark your imagination with 50 Modern Cargos.

This 18 page product contains detailed descriptions of 50 cargos suited for a modern or near future setting as well as several tables and rules to help you generate appropriate cargo for every train, truck and ship in your world. Rules are also provided to combine this product with the original Just Add Dice: 100 Ship Cargos to give you even more options.

Now with more value. This product has been updated to include the flexible, abstract value system present in the other Just Add Dice: Ship Cargo generators. This update includes a value rating for all of the cargos presented in this book as well as 5 new tables to modify these values based on the port where they're sold. The new Item Pricing section also gives advice on how to use the value rating to determine an item's worth in both a historical and modern time. This update finally brings the Just Add Dice: 50 Modern Ship Cargos book in line with the other cargo generators and makes it fully compatible for their use together.

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.
