Castrobancla, The City of Aliens

Suggested Price $6.99

A lonely city sits on the edge of a hot desert, in a solar system perched on the edge of a stellar desert.

This city of aliens is ancient. It is a home for secrets. A den of gamblers, thieves, hustlers and spies.

Welcome to Castrobancla. Have your papers ready for inspection, and make sure you've had all your shots.

Castrobancla is a sprawling city setting for use with Mongoose Traveller, Second Edition. It features a secondary world, Amarja, the city Castrobancla and a host of landmarks from the moon Candra to the Great Western Ocean and the Great Amarjan Desert through to buildings such as the Great Spinward Hotel, locations such as the Life Markets, the Search and Rescue Garrison of Menilak Ward, T'Pol International Spaceport, Voitila Ward - also called "Paradise" - and regions ranging from sublime opulence to crushing poverty.

The Travellers can discover Castrobancla's quirky public transport system, learn the terrifying secrets of Watertown and the Settlers, and encounter several all-new alien races including at least one with a secret that reaches across the stars.

Sixty six pages of fun and adventure await the Travellers in Castrobancla, the city where a thousand faces greet them on arrival, practically none of them human.

Rule System(s)
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.
