VANGUARD STATION
Security Outpost

This Vigilance-class listening post was designed as a deep-space station that could serve a variety of functions. The small, PL-7 outpost is just over 160 feet tall and houses a permanent crew of 10. There are also barracks and facilities provided for 16 additional personnel or guests

Have you ever hesitated to have space-faring characters arrested because you don't have a detention center ready to receive them? Well, worry no longer! Vanguard Station VII is one of twelve such outposts used as a base of operation by ConFed Security - the law enforcement officers of the space lanes. Not only does the station have a pair of armed patrol craft, but it also has a dedicated detention center and full compliment of trained personnel.

The station lounge and administrative offices are open to the public. The food is only re-hydrated government fare, but the drinks are good and the patrons understandably well behaved. By re-using the barracks map page in place of the detention center, the same station can represent a civilian establishment (like a truck stop in space)or even a military garrison or supply depot. Whether the characters are just visiting (voluntarily or not), or looking for a place to call their own, this little station can fit the bill.

The .zip file contains the following:

  • Overview
    • 21 page PDF file detailing the station, interior locations, and personnel.
    • Open Game License stats provided for the vessel and crew, as well as the shuttles and escape pods.
  • Map Book
    • Full-color 26 page PDF file containing complete interior maps.
    • Includes miniature-scale maps for tactical combat.
    • Broken into pages for easy printing.
  • Printer friendly, grayscale version of the map book.
  • Miniature-scale composite maps of the station interior.
    • A 22x22 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG image of the top deck.
    • A 22x28 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG image of the main deck.
    • A 14x10 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG image of the engineering deck.
    • (Other levels along the "spine" already fit onto a single page.)
  • "Bonus Art" directory with rendered images of the station and patrol skiffs

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

This small space station can serve as a ready-made setting for game masters or a base of operations for players. While OGL statistics are provided for maximum compatability, they kept are separate for easy modification or replacement. Whatever your game system, Vanguard Station can serve as an interesting place to visit, or a secure place to rest and recuperate between adventures!

The only thing that I would ask to be added to these awesome ship and space station files would be a "counter" or "token" to be used for online gaming. I use Roll20.net and plan to use this as my party's home base in an upcoming Traveller game. :) No [...]

Vanguard Station is a nice set for running a good claustrophobic space horror game. Nowhere to run and no where to hide! The options for both full color and line drawings are nice along with a "GM's map" version for easy notation. Like all in this series, [...]

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.
