BDSF: Spheres in the Night

Watermarked PDF

Billion &  Blurbfurst Planets!

Travel from the furious roads of an outlaw, desert wasteland to the floating peaks of a low-gravity tropical wonderland, and countless weird and wonderful worlds in between. Spheres in the Night gives you a distinct and varied set of easy-to-use tables for generating random, yet characterful and unique, planets for your Big Damn Sci-Fi Games.

Spheres in the Night gives you:

  • An elaborate table for generating random worlds.
  • Possibilities ranging from conventional to the outlandish. What’s this? Another desert wasteland… Roll again and see if you get a planet made entirely of psychic meat! It’s so good, you cannot deny the meat!
  • Varied environments from habitable and earth-like to toxic, death planets without atmosphere.
  • Guidelines for demarking planets into political and cultural zones. No more “every culture is a monoculture” cliché!
  • A simple measure of different levels of technology.

    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.
