In the vastness of space, the ship’s intrepid crew discovers a starship, floating wounded in the void. The boarding party opens the hatch in anticipation: what is down the corridor? Tabletop Adventures provides scores of descriptions of the sights and dangers of a derelict starship, stat-free and suitable for use with nearly any futuristic game, regardless of system. Whether a ship is damaged, abandoned, or filled with the victims of a space-borne plague, these pieces will help bring the dead ship to life.

Drop in one of 100 short descriptions that can fit in anywhere (also provided in index card format for ease of use by Game Masters), or choose among dozens of special locations within the ship: hatches and corridors, life pods and crew quarters, hydroponics, medical bay, cargo hold, weapons turret and more. Excellent original art by Jeff Uryasz depicts several scenes. Bring even more realism to your vision of the future with help from an article on what happens to a dead body in a vacuum.

Into the Future: Derelict Starships has all the details needed to make your futuristic adventures just that – adventurous. To make life easier, they are indexed so a GM can easily find a description to fit a particular need. We have also included a text-only version which can be used to cut and paste directly into your GM notes or sized into a large print version for those who prefer larger type.

Augment your imagination with products from Tabletop Adventures!

48 pages plus index cards; 65 pages total.

I do have one strange problem with the PDF- it is unable to extract a certain font so there's some text missing in the PDF on both computers I've tried it on. The RTF prints fine, though, so I know what was supposed to be there. But it would be great if that could be fixed or if I could get that font.

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.
