HardNova 2: The Intercosm


Expand your HardNova 2 adventures with the Intercosm.

The Darhren Empire came to power thousands of years ago, absorbing countless worlds in a relentless wave of conquest. Many sovereign systems realized that the benefits of joining the Empire far outweighed the cost of fighting it -- advances in technology swept across the galaxy, Imperial businesses prospered through free trade agreements, and hostiles were routed by the Darhren Military. 

The Empire is now in a steady state of decline. Despotic emperors, government corruption, and political infighting left it a fragmented shell. Rebellion has begun. Neglected and forgotten worlds contrast the prosperous inner worlds. Could the recent turmoil be a passing phase or is this the beginning of the end? 

This alternate setting for HardNova 2 is designed to be flexible and to accommodate a wide range of play. It includes new gimmicks, over 20 new species, historical context, galactic factions, focus on a handful of Imperial worlds, introductory scenario, 21 new starships, and 30 new character templates.

Now updated to match the style of HardNova 2 Revised and Expanded.

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.
