Ambush at Altair

Starship Troopers - The Roleplaying Game

Ammunition is running out. Power is running out. Time is running out… and the Arachnids are coming.

You thought you had it easy – a few days shore leave on Tango Urilla, the only colonised world in the Altair System. You were ready to knock back a few beers and enjoy the nightlife. You had been told by the boys in Military Intelligence that the system was devoid of Arachnid activity.

Military Intelligence had got it wrong.

You have had vacations turn sour before but this time you are fighting for your life. Now locked in battle against a terrible enemy, every shot will count as you desperately avoid the worst the Arachnids can throw at you.

Ambush at Altair is an extended series of missions for a squad of Mobile Infantry Troopers. Using the unique scenario format of the Starship Troopers RPG, you can pick up this book and enjoy an evening’s game in just a few minutes.

For a group of four to six Mobile Infantry Player Characters of 6th to 7th level.

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.
