Supplement M9 Meshan Sector Ironside in The New Era

Watermarked PDF

This is the ninth book in a series, that explores the world of Ironside in Meshan Sector in the New Era of Traveller (TNE). Written by former members of the History of The Imperium Working Group who detailed Meshan Sector during The New Era, this is a non-commercial publication for use with Traveller.

This book provides a brief overview of the world, system data and maps for the world of Ironside. The writeup focusses on the Classic Traveller era mainly, but has notes and specs for the Rebellion and the New Era.

Use this as a companion to the more recent and detailed version of the world presented in our generic science fiction world supplement, Far Frontiers Ironside.

Ironside is an inhabited human water world in the Meshan Sector. The locals live a quaint maritime lifestyle with many cultural elements derived from their Earthly roots, enriched with some Vilani influences.

The world and one of it’s moons was once the subject of active study, as the largest moon showed signs of a terraforming attempt prior to the 2nd Imperium expansion into the sector. High tech artefacts were sometimes discovered.

Note: This is a fan level publication available for free and is part of pre-commercial work done leading up to our failed commercial Traveller project.

A Cepheus compatible version of this is available in Far Frontiers Ironside.

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.
