A Referee is many things: host, writer, actor, and judge. While players play, you have to do everything else. It’s almost like work, and isn’t for everyone. But you’re different; you LIKE the job. It’s a big job to do, and your toolkit should stack up to the size of your job.

The Referee’s Handbook is the essential toolkit for the FrontierSpace roleplaying game. While it does contain rules for action, adventure, and combat – it is full of so much more. A wealth of game preparation tools accompany this rulebook.

Inspiration is contained herein. Add psionics to your games. Design security systems and corporate installations to infiltrate. Customize characters, weapons, robots, vehicles, and starships. Design your own species and creatures. Build a campaign setting of your own, or flesh out the one provided. Generate star systems and planets to explore. You just add imagination!

The Referee's Handbook is the essential toolkit for every FrontierSpace Referee. Contained in this book you'll find all the rules you need for running the game. This is a companion volume to the Player's Handbook, available here.

FrontierSpace is built upon the foundation of the d00lite system, the same game engine used to power BareBones Fantasy and Covert Ops roleplaying games. Years of feedback and continued game system development has evolved this product into something that flows at the game table while getting out of the way of a good story.

Hi William,

Excellent that you've got the print version available now. Is there a mechanism for a discount for those of us who bought the PDF version right away?

Thanks

Hi Ken. Yep... I sent out an email using the publisher tools on this site. If you purchased the PDF you should have received the email - check your spam folder :-) If for some reason you're not set up to receive site discounts & contact, please send me an email at wlogan[at]dwdstudios[dot]com and show me your PDF order number as validation. I can then reply with the coupon for either a softcover or hardcover version (your choice - please specify). Happy to oblige.

To be clear, is there a bestiary?

There is nothing specifically called a "bestiary" but there is a chapter on "Alien Lifeforms" which provides Referee tools for creating alien creatures and species, and includes many pages of examples of both. So I guess there is a bestiary of roughly 9 creatures and five alien species.

Bought the PDF and it is awesome. Both volumes are excellent. Like others here though, I'd like a print version of the Referee's Handbook to go with the Player's one . And a print version with an adjustment for already owning the PDF would be even better! Really enjoying FrontierSpace and looking forward to gaming with it.

Is there a chance people who get the PDF now could get a discount for the price of the PDF to buy the print copy when it becomes available? I'd love to pick this up now, but I don't want to have to pay extra for the PDF when it would have been free with the print version. Assuming you price this the same way you priced the player's guide that is.

Yee, haw! Along with the Player's Handbook, the core rules are complete. I am dying for some old-school action SF of yore, and *this* will do the trick.

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.
