An original adventure for the Dark Horizons Universe Campaign Setting

If you thought man's past was dark, wait until you see his future.

Crisis on Sol Observatory takes place on a research space station in orbit around Mercury. Built to study sunspots and solar flares, the station was equipped with two high-powered electromagnetic radiation-shielding generators to protect it from solar radiation. Unfortunately for the station's inhabitants, both of these shields malfunctioned during a recent and particularly severe solar storm. Sol Observatory was bathed in radiation that should have killed the occupants, but long-range scans by rescue craft shortly after the storm detected lifesigns on the station. The PCs are the emergency response team that has been sent to search for survivors, recover any valuable data, and find out why the shielding failed.

To run this adventure, the GM needs the d20 Modern Roleplaying Game, d20 Future, and the Dark Horizons Universe Campaign Setting. This adventure is best suited for a party of 6th level characters.

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.
