This is a pay what you wish adventure for Cepheus Engine.

The Frontier Scout Serviceis offering a substantial sum for a dangerous mission in the sector just beyond the Sonora. A previous mapping expedition discovered a world just four parsecs into the next sector. The scout service placed an orbital research station there and sent three scout ships to explore this world. The station has gone silent and none of the scout ships have returned.

The Frontier Scouts want an expedition to find out some answers to the following questions:

Expore the planet. What type of atmosphere does it have if any?

Do a mineral and geological survey

Take soil samples

Are there alien ruins there?

Are there any forms of life there? Does anyone live there?

What happened to the orbital station?

What became of the scouts who never returned?

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.
