S.C.A.R.E. - Secrets, Contacts, Allies, Rivals and Enemies. They are part and parcel of the character generation process, and provide endless opportunities for adventure, intrigue and complication. The S.C.A.R.E. line NPC's are designed to provide maximum flexibility for the Referee as they can be used in several ways; either as a valuable Contact or Ally, or as a dangerous Rival or Enemy. Secrets can be exploited for profit, patriotism or career advancement; and each could lead to danger, wealth or fantastic new discoveries. Multiple plot hooks and adventure ideas are also presented in each release, allowing easy integration into your game.

The first volume of this series details Hamnett Yamazaki, Admiral and commander of all Imperial Naval Forces within the Sub-Sector . Hamnett is a study in contrast; he is a career Naval Officer that takes his duty seriously. He also employs means well outside the accepted code of conduct for Naval Officers. He views his job as overseeing the Sub-Sector as the main priority, and applies that motivation to all his actions. He'll take credits to look the other way while a container of fermented Anshevaax Milk passes through, or give a careless crew intercepted with illicit goods a pass so he can know more about a new syndicate setting up shop in "his" Sub-Sector. He will not let crimes like kidnapping, arms shipments or certain types of espionage go un-punished. While he considers himself an upstanding officer and would never do something directly harmful to the Imperium or his home system, like knowingly allow terrorists or prohibited weapons to pass unmolested; he sees other infractions of the Imperial code to be lesser sins. Indeed, sometimes "greasing the wheels" of commerce does more to avoid hostilities than a dozen peace negotiators. Hamnett learned long ago that it is impossible to prevent illicit goods from travelling the stars. "Profit finds a way" is one of his personal sayings. Hamnett is a realist, and he also realizes that if the goods are going to flow anyway, he might as well get a small piece of the profits. His current position as head of the sub-sector fleet facilitates this nicely.

This PDF release includes information on Hamnett including his background, personality and how he treats people he conciders Allies, Contacts, Rivals or Enemies. There are also dozens of adventure hooks and ideas for using Hamnett in each of these roles.

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.
