Type S: An Adventure for Traveller from Comstar Games

The Type S Scout/Courier
The Type S is one of the commonest starships in all of Charted Space. Users describe it as tough, reliable, robust… just plain hard to break. And yet the crew of the Detached Duty Scout/Courier Highndry have somehow managed just that. Now the ship is stranded on Walston in the Spinward Marches, the crew have absconded and the Scout Service wants the vessel back.

A Simple Task
Enter the travellers, a resourceful team of adventurers or maybe even heroes. Commissioned to track down the missing ship, effect a repair and return it to Flammarion Scout Base, they might consider the recovery of Highndry to be easy money. They might be wrong about that…

A Call to Adventure
Type S is a complete adventure for Traveller. Written by Martin J Dougherty, author of the Spinward Marches sourcebook, it takes the travellers from the high-tech starport at Flammarion to a frontier world were adventure, disaster and crisis await.

This volume also details the world of Walston and the surrounding systems, providing additional adventure possibilities and background material that will help bring the Spinward Marches to life.

An adventure well-suited to draw together a group of adventurers and arrange for them most likely to end up with use of a ship (though in what condition, depends to some extent on their abilities). The scenario begins with quite mundane, even bureaucra [...]

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.
