Space Opera

Watermarked PDF

SPACE OPERA includes complete rules for character and planet generation, human and alien races, skills and professions, starships, individual and ship combat, etc. Also included are summary charts, tables, ship and planetary record sheets and character reference sheet. SPACE OPERA is the most complete science fiction role playing game ever produced.

SPACE OPERA is a science fiction role playing game. Players control characters who may be star pilots, scientists, soldiers, merchants, explorers, space marines, or any one of a number of other professions. These characters have adventures in a galaxy designed by the StarMaster who referees the game. SPACE OPERA adventures may be interwoven over several game sessions to play out the lives of the characters involved in this fascinating game of action and interaction.

VOLUME 1 covers the generation of characters, their attributes, skills, career possibilities, and the effects of their planets of origin. Variations for alien races are presented. Psionic talents are explained. Details for running, maintaining and repairing a starship are given. Five starships, complete with deckplans are provided. Volume 1 is 90 pages long.

VOLUME 2 presents a wide selection of equipment and weapons for a variety of technological levels. Combat, both on the ground and between starships is covered. Detailed sections on starship design, world creation, interstellar travel and commerce, and planetary cultures fill out the book. Volume 2 is 91 pages long.

An assortment of master record forms and a selection of useful charts are also included.

For you as a player, SPACE OPERA offers a selection of species for your character. From a basis of randomly determined characteristics (slanted to favor your character) you take him through his career up to the point when his adventures start. This development system results in a complete and rounded character with skills chosen in a nonrandom fashion to suit his or her needs.

For you as StarMaster, SPACE OPERA offers rules covering a wide variety of topics from which you may pick and choose those that will best suit the universe in which you wish to play. In this way you can simulate situations from virtually any part of science fiction literature. SPACE OPERA gives you a framework within which to set and develop the adventures that you conceive for the characters. The only limit is your imagination.

SPACE OPERA requires one person to act as StarMaster and is most enjoyable with 2 or more other players. The rules present a detailed, and in some areas intricate, simulation of a science fiction universe which is a blend of scientific fact, postulated future science and just plain imagination.

This is not a review but a comment this game is about as old as me and the scan coversion to PDF looks as old as me (40). I realize some one was kind enough to scan it to PDF but I was hoping that it would be a quailty job too. However if your like me [...]

This is just an incredibly detailed and amazingly complex set of rules that really can cover just about any event or action that you can consider. I loved the character generation rules and i see where the basic concept was carried on in other games later [...]

The reason for buying this product is for the information in it. The game system is entirely dated, and overly complex, but it has a lot of information about how to run starships, psionics, weapons and types of items. It is loaded with stuff. * Us [...]

Amazingly enough I discovered Space Opera in 1981 and about 5 months after I discovered the D&D and the AD&D First Edition rules. I was hooked on role-playing and SO really added fuel to the fire. I studied those rules backwards and forwards, upside-down [...]

Back in 1981 while I was attending college I happened to stumble across this jewel of a game. The local wargaming club had just discovered it and was running original scenarios for it in addition to those of Traveller, which had been around for just a [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
