Full Light, Full Steam

Suggested Price $10.00

The great steel ship shuddered as a torpedo clanged off of the hull and detonated a moment later. "What's this, you're throwing Russian torpedoes at us?" Lieutenant Downing laughed out the conning glass and yanked on the ship's wheel. The starscape beyond tilted and wheeled, sending the crackling shock explosions and whizzing fighters spinning past their view. Finally, the other battleship appeared in the distance, the ether cannons along its line snapping back and forth like ants. "Little Jack Harkness, you'll need to throw more than that at a British ship to make her turn tail. Mister Hastings, direct the batteries to take aim on the battleship and inform the engine room we will need full light and full steam. It's time to show these pirates what for!"

Full Light, Full Steam is a steampunk space opera roleplaying game with a strong emphasis on character.

The Solar Powers ply the ether of the Greatest Sea in steam-powered ships, protecting their colonies and trading posts on distant planets. None is greater than the British Empire -- and none has more to lose. Join the Royal Astronomical Navy and protect the rights and prosperity of the greatest nation on earth! God save the Queen!

Full Light, Full Steam is a steam punk roleplaying game (216 pages) which does include space ships (just this solar system). So, I soloed this using the Solo Investigator’s Handbook. I knew that I wanted a mystery which starts with a dead body [...]

Excellent setting, full of charm. It is a captivating universe delineated in this book, every planet, port or asteroid described with a gripping narrative that invites for adventures to be set upon them. The premise of a Victorian age Space Col [...]

Victorian, but not the Victorian era as we know it. For example, page 11 describes how Florence Nightingale led the Charge of the Light Brigade to capture the Russian space elevator at Balaclava. The solar-steam-electric-etheric space drive is p [...]

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.
