The Stars Aren't Right


Humans have spread beyond the confines of Earth, colonizing and mining various planets.  Ships nearly able to achieve faster-than-light travel with engines powered by nuclear fission go between the mines of the planetoid nicknamed Solitude and Ascendant Station in orbit around Saturn.  The material sought after most is the highly unstable mineral UE-31.  Scientists have been working for nearly seventy years on the best way to transport UE-31 and, with any luck, how to synthesize it with mixed results; scientists have died, ships of scientists have gone missing, and none of the artificial versions of UE-31 have proven to be comparable in energy output versus mass.

Those people with the highest levels of influence hope to solve the mystery of UE-31, hoping that one of the missing scientist ships has solved the mystery; hence a lot of laws and backroom deals have been made to ensure that any lost ship is found and recovered.

This scenario is meant for 2-5 players. While this game is set in the future, the amount of action and alien violence necessitates that it utilizes the Pulp Cthulhu rules.

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.
