Badlands Sourcebook

Watermarked PDF

Jade struggled with her Jäger's controls as she slid down a large slope. Sand billowed around her as autocannon fire ripped into the fine silicate. Darting through smaller dunes, she watched in horror as Bart's Elan took a direct hit from a Northern rocket. The buggy exploded in an orange ball of death. She was next.

Spinning on the Gear's foot-mounted wheels, she emptied her pack-gun into the Jaguar coming over the crest. Thick smoke started pumping out of the attacker's side and Jade allowed herself a grim smile. It faded as two Hunters appeared to cover their wounded commander. Tracer shells zipped past her viewscreen and she slammed her Gear into a zigzagging run. It wasn't enough.

A high-caliber shell cracked her Jäger's V-engine housing just before Jade got behind cover. Fuel oil poured onto the sand and all her gages slammed into the red, but the dry well was right where she remembered. She pulled the manual release, grabbed her canteen and rifle, slipped out of her Gear and jumped into the fissure in less than a minute. From there, she could make it out of the battle unseen.

They may have won the first encounter, but the Northern Guard hadn't heard the last of the Desert Wolves.

This Badlands sourcebook provides a wealth of information on the inhabitants of the great desert. A perfect complement to the Terra Nova sourcebook, it focuses on people and events, including most of the principal actors in the desert setting, and emphasizes how their relationships are changing with the move to war. Some highlights of this book include:

  • Paxton Arms
  • New settlements
  • Rover gangs
  • The Northern and Southern forces
  • The Revisionist Church
  • The semi-legendary Sand Riders.

Scanned image
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.
