TimeSPAN Role Playing Game

Watermarked PDF

The year is 2120. Humanity has survived an alien invasion that killed nearly half the Earth's population and left once beautiful cities in ruin. But mankind has risen from the ashes, and thanks to captured alien technology humanity has made great strides in rebuilding its civilization. Earth is no longer our only home. Colonies have been built on the Moon, Mars, and in orbit around Venus. But the greatest achievement of all is the discovery of time travel!

But like many great discoveries time travel has fallen into the wrong hands. Rogue nations and organizations of "time terrorists" seek to alter the flow of time in their favor. The only thing stopping them from causing irreparable damage to the Earth's history are teams of brave agents from the TimeSPAN Agency.

TimeSPAN is a science fiction time travel game using the d20 and d6 for its game mechanics and a class-based character generation system. The setting forces players to think about the potential consequences of their actions, for a single mistake at a critical moment might erase a character's existence entirely. TimeSPAN also includes guideline for using the setting with other role playing games, tips on how to use TimeSPAN's system for a generic science fiction campaign, and rule for using it with the MADS role playing game.

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.
