FUTURE ARMADA  

REDUX Beta
Variant Designs

This issue presents three new additions to the Future Armada universe – each an obvious decedent of an existing ship or piece of equipment. Based on previous designs and built to add depth and realism to your campaign, these additions should seem both familiar and new.

  • The first ship presented is Telemon – a variant of the Ajax design, which is itself a reworking of MisFortune. Where Ajax relied on customized cargo containers to fulfill vital roles, Telemon provides dedicated space for crew quarters and other necessities. A version with cargo bays rather than containers is also provided.
  • Next is a set of HMT 337 cargo containers customized to serve as prefabricated structures for a fledgling colony. To efficiently move these colony pods into place is the Tri-TOAD – a more powerful version of the boxy VTOL craft.
  • Finally, Future Armada ends up where it started with a variant of the CSS Morningstar – the flagship of the series. Starlance is a Fenris-class warship reworked with an mercenary or adventuring group in mind. It has fewer bunks but tons of extra space for fighters, a shuttle, and a lot more cargo.

The goal is to add a sense of continuity to your universe by providing an evolution of some well known vessels. Existing ships are repurposed and proven designs are reworked to fill a new niche.

 

Each ship is presented independently with its own document, maps, and art within the "Redux Beta" directory. The .zip file contains the following:

  • Overviews
    • 15, 15, and 18 pages for Colony Pods, Telemon, and Starlance respectively.
    • Each is a PDF file detailing the ship or station, interior areas, and crew.
    • Open Game License stats are provided for reference.
  • Map Books
    • A total of 73 pages containing complete interior maps and deckplans.
    • 10, 26, and 37 pages for Colony Pods, Telemon, and Starlance respectively.
    • Miniature-scale (1 inch = 5 feet) maps for tactical combat.
    • One inch grid built cleanly into the art.
    • Broken into pages for easy printing.
  • Printer friendly, black and white versions of the map books (so 146 pages total).
  • Art
    • Large, single-image maps of the ships are provided.
      • These are 150 dpi, color JPEG images.
      • The Tri-TOAD is 15x17 inches. Telemon is 34x64 and Starlance is 36x60
    • Additional rendered images of the ships and station are also included.

Sample documents and bonus art are available at 0-hr.com.

Like all of the Future Armada ships and stations, these are meant to be useful to game masters and players alike. Story, stats, and maps are all easily separated. Keep what you like & change what want, it's up to you.

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.
