Dossier: Eirik Steed

Watermarked PDF

Meet Fortune’s Fool…

“Everybody on the floor! NOW!”

Eirik Steed turned at the shouted command. Three masked men — two brandishing revolvers, and another holding a submachine gun — had burst into the G-bank. A guard gambled he could draw a bead on the attackers – and was ripped to pieces by a burst from the SMG.

“I told you to get on the floor, punk!” one of the criminals shouted at Eirik, leveling his weapon. Eirik surprised everyone by returning a loud and defiant “No!”

The robber pulled the trigger. Twice. Nothing happened. He turned the weapon sideways to look incredulously at it, and it immediately went off, the bullet ending his SMG-wielding partner with a perfect shot to the temple. As the remaining two thieves took stock of their situation with widening eyes, Eirik went for the nearest one. The other whirled, squeezing off a round. The shot flew wide, striking a heavy metal plant holder and ricocheting into the criminal who had tried to shoot Eirik. Seconds later, the remaining robber lay unconscious at Eirik’s feet.

As the bank customers swarmed Eirik with accolades and claps on the back, one remarked how lucky it was that the robber’s gun jammed.

“Lucky? I dunno about that,” Eirik replied, grinning.

Some people are just born lucky. And then there are those who seem to abuse the privilege. Eirik Steed is one of the latter. Born to poor parents on a struggling industrial world, his lack of education put him on an early path to crime, but his luck soon manifested itself when he tried to rob an influential noble. Instead of summoning the authorities, the noble decided instead to try and save this disheveled urchin from a life of despair. The fortunate act put the youngster on a different path, one that saw him embark on a long career in the military, aided by one of the most incredible streaks of luck in human history.

Dossier: Eirik Steed is an offering in the Dossier series for 2D6 games such as Cepheus Engine or the Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG.) The file offers a brief character sketch, a personality sketch, character motivation, character stats usable for CE and the OSFRPG, and suggestions for using this fortunate soldier in the Referee’s own universe.

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.
