From the idiot that brought you Delve Second Edition

You are in a ship when something goes wrong, your engines falter and you begin to plunge through space, caught in the gravity of a nearby planet, everything goes black.

You awaken to find yourself alive, your ship lies nearby, it is a total wreck. You quickly check for injuries and then your pockets you have a few items. You hear voices and looking around you see other survivors, good you're not alone. All you need to do now is work out where in the galaxy you are and how to get back on course. 

So begins Stranded.

Marooned on a planet once used by corporations to research forbidden science and test on dangerous criminals you are gonna need all your wits to survive, within this core rulebook you will find rules for:

  • Character Creation allowing you to choose from 7 alien races

  • 5 Professions to choose from.
  • Rules for Cybernetics
  • Guide to Psionics and Psi Gems
  • Gear, Armour, Weapons and Vehicles
  • A complete list of Monsters and dangers such as weather and plant life
  • A starting adventure to help you learn the game and a second adventure to see if you learnt it :)

  • Tables for encounters, weather, treasures, weird stuff and more
  • A Map of RU57
  • Character Sheet
  • Other stuff I may have forgotten

Ancient Alien Ruins is there a random table for them?

There is a d10 random location table that includes a few ruins [not necessarily alien] and then a subsequent d10 table that gives a very brief description of what's notable about it in about 6 words or less, but that also is applicable to wrecks too.

Other than that there are no in-depth random tables for ancient alien ruins that I'm aware of.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for updating the character sheet but the Skills and Attributes still don't tie up with the rulebook in places, i.e. Ambush [EDU not PER]; similarly Forage, Pilot, Psionics, and Survival are all wonky.

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.
