Bounded Fortune: Independent Merchants in Clement Sector


Are you ready to live the independent life?

Bounded Fortune is the sourcebook for the independent merchants of Clement Sector.  This book builds on the trade and merchant rules in Clement Sector providing more detail and additional insight into how to be an independent merchant.

This includes sections on how to buy a starship and how to obtain funds for an item that is expensive but essential to living the independent merchant life as well as how to set up your own independent merchant business and the obstacles presented to you by the various challenges established by the Clement Sector setting.  This book covers ship quirks, hiring crew, leadership styles for captains, crew wages, freight hauling, mail contracts, and passengers.  It also includes expanded speculative trade tables as well as random encounter tables to make the Referee’s job easier.

This book also contains 11 careers which are involved in being an independent merchant based on our career progression system first detailed in Hub Federation Navy.  Start your career as a cargomaster, move up to being the purser, and then become a member of the bridge crew, and finally take your place as captain of your own ship!

Can you handle the challenge of being an independent merchant?

I read the swords and stitchery review. It spoke about market flux, supply and demand and after a quick scan of the book I cannot find any reference to supply and demand.

Where can I find such details.

I suspect that he means the Trade Characteristic Table and how the characteristics of each world have an effect on the trade. If not that, I'm not sure what he means by that statement. I'm afraid you'd likely have to ask him.

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.
