ADVENTURE ACROSS THE GALAXY!

Ace Pilots, dead-eyed Gunslingers, and irrepressible Star Squirrels blast off across the stars to save the galaxy from the horrors of the Void! Hellfire Mecha march across the battlefield, leaving carnage in their wake! From the galactic center of Omega Consor to the Manrash System on the edge of the universe, the galaxy needs heroes!

Endless galactic adventure awaits you in White Star: Galaxy Edition! Integrated and updated to include material from White Star and the White Star Companion, White Star: Galaxy Edition integrates new rules, new options, and expands the original game. Now more than just a tool box, White Star: Galaxy Edition offers you a universe full of thrilling adventure!

White Star: Galaxy Edition includes:

  • Twenty-five character classes!
  • Complete rules for Starship, Vehicle, and Mecha combat!
  • New Starship and Vehicle Modifications!
  • New Aliens and Creatures!
  • New Equipment, Advanced Technology, and Cybernetics!
  • New Meditations and Gifts!
  • Two new forms of Mysticism: The tribal Etchings of the Yabnab and strange Chitterings of the Star Squirrels!
  • New Optional Rules, like Deeds Dark & Daring, to add pulp sci-fi heroics to your game!
  • New Star Systems: The rugged Marnash Sector and strange Scuiridae System!

White Star: Galaxy Edition is compatible with all previous White Star products and can be seamlessly integrated into White Box and other OSR material!

For the record, if this had a print version I would ask Santa to put it under my tree (even though I bought the core book and companion in PDF) :)

Is there a list of changes in the new update (to 1.1), that those of us who printed it out can note rather than reprinting?

I love this game! Mr. Spawn is one of my favorite OSR developers. Is there an ETA on the Pod version yet? I have to have it NOW!

Im new to White Star and am a bit confused. Is this a combo of the White Star rules & Companion? So those are not needed and are covered in this book? Print soon?

The galaxy book has everything from the main book, companion, and previously released supplements with the exception of the multi-classing rules from the companion. It's only one page, but they are very well thought out and really enhances the playability of characters. I'm hoping the missing page was just an oversight and not intentional. It needs to be included with the errata to be added to the PDF and the future print version.

Richard is exactly correct on all but one thing. The Multiclass rules were intentionally omitted from Galaxy Edition. I felt that with over 20 classes to pick from, Multiclassing felt a bit like overkill. HOWEVER, with the rules being present in the White Star Companion, they can easily be included.

Will the multi-classing rules make it into the galaxy book from the companion? If they're there, I can't find them.

The Manrash system...that's a joke right? Can you get a cream for it?

what format is this one in? The last time I bought one it was in A5 Printers format, which made it very difficult to use.

Is this to the original White Star as AD&D is to the original D&D?

No, I'd say it's more akin to what the Rules Cyclopedia was for BECM.

So do those of us that have both the White Star and the White Star Companion get a discount on this?

Proofreading?

This is obviously an early release. It doesn't even have an Index yet. I'm sure it'll get more editing before it gets indexed and then proofed for PoD.

Patience y'all.

There is an errata thread on the WS Google+ community--please contribute, so that the print version is as error-free as we can get!
Customer avatar
Michael B October 08, 2017 3:17 pm UTC
Ordinarily, the publisher and author are supposed to have the patience to have proofreading done. Patience is for creators. Discernment is for consumers.That doesn't mean I'm not going to investigate this to see if it's eventually good. I just think the problem is not on the side of those who have purchased it.

will there be a print on demand edition? any chance it can be full size rather than the digest size the other white star books were in?
Customer avatar

PUBLISHER
There will be PoD and we're keeping to the 6x9 format.
Customer avatar
Jeffrey G September 22, 2017 5:38 pm UTC
Personally, I'm glad to hear that. The 6x9 format prints really nicely in PDF booklet format on 8.5x11" paper, making it easy to saddlestitch or DIY perfect bind into a very nice book. Barrel Rider's *The Hero's Journey* is a beautiful example of this format, and a lovely book by any standard. I'd expect *White Star: Galaxy* to measure up to the same standards (although that's hard to tell from the Full Preview on this page, since that only shows the table of contents...).

We're fixing the full preview to give you a better look at the interior. I'll be updating the previews soon.

Great to hear. It's a common problem on DTRPG--previews that only show the credits and the ToC.

The preview's been updated.

I much prefer the 6x9 format, glad to hear it's still in that size. Easier to read on my big tablet, too.

Format
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.
