Rocket Age - The Asteroid Belt

ADD TO WISHLIST >
PDF
$2.99

Spinning and tumbling between Mars and Jupiter, a vast conglomeration of asteroids and planetary fragments spread across millions of miles in the fifth orbital position around the Sun. The remains of the planet Eris, these stellar bodies range in size, speed, and trajectory. Though travelling through such chaos is dangerous, the mineral and archaeological wealth present within the ancient rocks make such voyages tempting and lucrative despite the risks.

The Asteroid Belt is by no means a dead zone, untouched by outside influences. The Belt is home to many: venture capitalists, pirates, criminals, xeno-archaeologists, and more inhabit the frozen surfaces and hollowed-out interiors of the asteroids of the Belt. These brave and foolish individuals face hardships unique to the region; though some survive and prosper, most accomplish neither.

The Asteroid Belt by Gabriel Garcia is a 24-page supplement for Rocket Age. In it you will find a gazetteer of some of the locations within the Asteroid Belt, from the treacherous but mineral-rich Fields of Golundria to the mysterious xeno-archaeology of Kalami Gru, describing each in detail alongside characters to encounter and plot hooks to investigate. There are also rules for four new organisations, new equipment and new creatures.

About Rocket Age

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 our new radium-powered game line of interplanetary adventure! Powered by the Vortex System (like our Doctor Who game) 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!

An excellent quick introduction to a region of space so far unexplored in Rocket Age. Like most Rocket Age supplements the emphasis is on story telling and adventure hooks. It also provides a number of new careers and factions to work for and against. [...]

I have to say, if anyone hasn't grabbed one yet, these short PDF offerings are really good value at under two quid! Avoiding spoilers here, but this one adds a decent new antagonist (or employer, depending on your PCs) in the form of 5th Orbit Excavati [...]

Format

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.
