Rocket Age won a 2014 ENnies Judge's Spotlight Award. 

"It's alternate history pulpy retro-sci-fi space opera planetary romance. It's throttled up rocket packs burning radium on the long blast to the farthest reaches of the Solar System. It's hunting thunder lizards in the upland jungles of Venus. It's battling Ancient Martian killing machines piloted by the Deutsche Marskorps across the baking red deserts of Mars. It's exploring the deadly skies of Jupiter under the constant threat of Europan disintegration. It's RAY gun wielding heroes bulls-eyeing mutants in the blasted ruins of Io" - Ken Spencer, Rocket Age Line Developer

Rocket Age is the core rulebook in our new radium-powered game line of interplanetary adventure! Powered by the Vortex System, it's packed to the fins with all the rules, setting information and game ideas to keep you playing throughout your very own rocket age!

Good Morning,
I was just wondering what the base mechanic of the game was? Just a quick blurb if you are able or have the time.
Appreciatively,
David

PUBLISHER
Rocket Age uses the Vortex system developed by Dave Chapman for the Doctor Who Adventures in Time and Space RPG. The system has been modified to fit a more cinematic and pulpy setting. Basically it is a combination of a classic attribute + skill +2d6 roll vs. a target number with the twist that all results are non-binary (yes but, yes, yes and or no, but, no, and no and as opposed to yes/no systems) and a strong narrative point spending system.

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.
