Planet X: Terror from Across the Universe

Watermarked PDF
Planet X: Terror from Across the Universe is the first supplement for Fantastic Worlds: Pulp Action in the Far Reaches of Space.

Players can now choose from many different alien ‘skins’ for their characters, allowing them to play anything from a lizard man to a cephalopod. Aliens with strong mental powers exert their will over weak minded characters using the new psychic skills and attributes. Players can even use hive mind creatures as player models.

No pulp sci-fi story or serial was complete without a wild and deadly creature for the hero to face. Pulp authors let their imaginations loose on these fabulous monsters, creating creatures of every size and shape imaginable, many with abilities that would challenge any hero. Planet X has a generic set up that allows players to use any creature model in their collection, creating a virtually inexhaustible supply of challenges.

Along with the rules for creating your own aliens, we have included information on some of the races and creatures that inhabit Planet X; from the strange hive minds of The Calanti to cyborg enhanced Rhonijn to the limb-rending Ripper Beast.

Then, to get you started quickly, we have 2 multi-part scenarios already done for you. One pits Kip, Sarah, Dr. Litmus and their allies against the psychic Zzinn in The Psychic Lords of Planet X. The second has a Star Command vessel investigating a mysterious floating wreck in The Chronicles of Star Command - Derelict.

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.
