Starport Scum
Regular price: $12.99
Bundle price:
 Watermarked PDF
Starport Scum is a tabletop game of fierce space adventure, space pirates and salvage crews looking for the next big break. Drawing on sources such as Traveller, Firefly, Trigun and Borderlands, it's a game about getting by on the outskirts of civilization, always on the look out for that next job. Combining miniatures war gaming with role playing game touches, Starport Scum is playable as a conventional miniatures game, a narrative RPG or a hybrid beast combining the best of both worlds. * * * * * The core combat rules use a dice pool system to deliver results very quickly. While the rules cover a variety of situations, the basics can be condensed down to one page and revolve around gathering up a base number of dice (based on character class), adding bonus dice for suitable tr...

The Storyteller's Guide to Starport Scum is the first big expansion for the game, offering a host of new toys to play with. Starport Scum rests on the middle ground between a wargame and a roleplaying game.  This first supplement expands the latter part, adding new story-telling and story-generating mechanics to the game engine.  Included are the following rules: *The Information System, allowing players to ask questions and get (occasionally unpredictable) responses about the game world. *Connections, allowing missions to be tied to past events. *Revelations, a simple mechanic to add an unexpected plot twist. *Social combat, if you want your arguments and verbal confrontations to be more dramatic. *Fate dice, for more heroic games. *The Story die, allowing pla...

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
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.
