2300 AD Ships of the French Arm

Watermarked PDF

Since even before the time of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, men dreamed of travelling between the stars in marvelous machines of their own creation. Stutterwarp technology has made these journeys possible, and now the near space around Sol is teeming with the activity of human starships, ferrying people and their belongings between exotic, alien worlds.

Earth and its many colonies have an inherent reliance on space travel, but the nature of the the ships which move between them varies greatly with the mission it is to perfom. For instance, cargo vessels are quite often tailored to their specific route of trade, such as bringing food rom the core to hungry colonists, returning laden with strange goods for wager consumers. More recently, the pressing issue of the Kafer War has forved shipbuilders and tactiticians aloke to rethink their vocations, forcing them to redesgin man's warships to effectively deal with the alien threat.

Ships of the French Arm examines over forty ships which can be found in that region of human space. Each is given splendid attention to detail, including a brief history and explanation of design, an illustration of the vessel and complete statistics of the design for immediate use with the game Star Crusier

Ships of the French Arm deals with a wide range of human designed starships from the Bismark Class battlecruiser to the Cargodevil merchant ship. Special attention is given to such ships as the Richelieu Class Battleship and the recently upgraded Martel Illbis Fighter, ships on the frontline against the Kafer onslaught, being thoroughly tested by their alien opponents.

For the referee, Ships of the French Arm is an invaluable source of encountered vessels (both friendly and otherwise) and ships the adventurers might be travelling on. For the players, this book becomes a handy guide to the local starships, letting them know what they can and cannot expect out of the Ships of the French Arm.

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.
