Velvet Generation: Ashcan

Watermarked PDF

Note: this is a preview/quickstart for Velvet Generation, currently on Kickstarter. The full version will be available here once it is fulfilled.

The Starchildren came to Earth on a pilgrimage to find the home planet of rock & roll. But they're a century too late. In 2071, rock music and free expression are outlawed by the fascist Ministry of Music. Stranded, the Starchildren join forces with the underground music movement here to create a revolution that will rock the world free.

This preview offers a quick look into the world of Velvet Generation, currently in the works by XIG Games. Get introduced to the Starchildren, the pacifist rock & roll revolutionary network called Velvet, and their militant hardcore counterparts in The Blue Army.

Sound-check the in-house rules engine for the game with the premiere of our in-house rules engine, designed to keep your bandmates riffing off of one another onstage and off. The onstage performance system is to Velvet Generation what systems for violence and combat are to many traditional RPGs, so you can get a taste of that here as well.

There's so much more to come, so enjoy this early-access pass to Velvet Generation!

Thanks for the heads-up! Looks like the original link got a little mangled when I was pasting it in, but it should work now.

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.
