The examples rolls are, to be fair, genuinely typical of what you get from this resource. But, that's all you get: a list of fifty single-line descriptions of small outposts, in a single page. There's not even a bit of flavor text to flesh out the descriptive tags. It's fairly obvious that these lines of text were randomly generated from an algorithm, with a table of descriptive tags. You might be able to work out the algorithm and the table from the fifty examples given, but it's not provided directly, as you might expect.

I'm generally in favor of inexpensive tools to generate content on the fly. But this feels like the creator was deliberately ratcheting down to the bare minimum they thought they could provide in a product. The best feature is the cover art. That there's a second volume, with the same cover art, makes it feel almost like this is a deliberate insult. It could have as easily been a thousand stations as fifty. Or better, it could have been the algorithm and the table, a bit of flavor text, and a few examples.

It's hard to say that something that costs less than a dollar isn't worth the price, but I think that's the case here.

Piracy and Privateering

This is good stuff, written with care to be useful for a broad range of space opera role-playing games.

Pirates are adventurers, by definition, and space opera often includes space pirates, so I've wondered why there isn't more material that directly addresses space piracy as the premise for a campaign. This starts to fill that gap.
