Setting Update Alpha


So, you're new to the Twilight Sector, eh? You stepped off the Mistress of Orion and into the Gateway at Terra/Sol and you're wondering if you want to check the place out further.

Well, we here at Terra/Sol Games may have the answer.

In our first official Setting Update, we bring you a freeguide to our universe drawn from the material in the Setting Book and some of our online free downloads, put together in a convenient book form. The Galactic Timeline maps humanity's journey through the next millennium. The Stellar Nations gives you a succinct feel for the political climate, some color and smells if you will. A few other tidbits have been added, such as a brief sketch of the Transluminal drive and Character Generation alternate rules, to whet your appetite for some of our upcoming releases.

The Alpha Update includes input from our Insider Forum and our blog from the past year. By popular demand we have also added free adventures! Send us your players, your friends and other interested parties to our website at to download Setting Update Alpha.

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.
