TNE-0309 Path of Tears


Where were all of the others? All the people who'd taught me, watched over me, helped me live this long? Some were still alive, still whole, but not enough of them. Not nearly enough. On over a dozen worlds, I'd left behind the friends and pieces of friends until it was finally my turn to stand up and give a toast, because there wasn't anybody here who's lasted this long. "If you live long enough," I remembered someone saying, "You lose everything."

I raised a chipped shite Navy coffee mug.

"To absent friends."

In what was once a neglected backwater of the Third Imperium, a dozen small worlds have banded together to make a new beginning. With a motley collection of patched up antique ships and a handful of Marines and commandos, they have set out to reconquer an empire and rebuild interstellar civilization. Their struggle will pit them repeatedly against seemingly hopeless odds, and every step forward along the road to their final goal will be purchased with their blood.

For the men and women of the Reformation Coalition, the roard to the new future is a Path of Tears.

Path of Tears: The Star Viking Sourcebook establishes the standard for campaign backgrounds in Traveller: The New Era. Space may be infinitely large, containing billions of habitable worlds, but each of those worlds is unique, and home to innumerable potential adventures. Space is not interesting because it contains thousands of cookie-cutter planets; space is fascinating because it contains thousands of unique, multifaceted worlds. Because of this philosophy, Path of Tears and following New Era campaign support materials will provide an effectively inexhaustible adventure resource.

Path of Tears: The Star Viking Sourcebook is a detailed, comprehensive and intriguing exploration of how much diversity and adventure possibility can be in a small group of planets. It brings the Reformation Coalition alive, and will permanently raise your Traveller campaign to new heights of excitement.

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.
