Description:

Humanity was struggling to catch up with its alien neighbors when Terra ceased to exist.

The attack had been a long time coming; it had traveled for over 200 years before it hit. Thousands of relativistic weapons swept across the system in a matter of hours, moving too swiftly for anyone to see them coming, try to escape, or to warn anyone else what was happening. When they struck the homeworld, the surface of Terra became a molten holocaust, and the oceans boiled away into the tortured skies. Every settlement on Luna, Mars, and the Galilean moons met the same fate. Colonies on smaller moons and asteroids simply shattered, vaporized instantly by the impact. In the final hours of the attack, on the fringe of Sol's oort cloud, the last comet-herders were just beginning to figure out something was wrong as they went off the air, one by one. And then it was over.

There were no survivors.

Terracide (by Grady Elliott) is a gritty, space opera noir. The Earth has been annihilated, leaving only the few thousand humans who were working in deep space alive. Those who have survived must not only continue the human race, but to discover who--or what--destroyed their home world. Players can chose from character Package Deals that include private eye, pirate, socialite, soldier, and many, many more.

Terracide is a setting for Star Hero 6th Edition, a genre book for the HERO System 6th Edition. The zip file includes the PDF, a printer friendly version of the PDF, and a cover image.

Overall: I found Terracide a generally well thought-out campaign setting, both comprehensive and a fun read in many parts. The setting is compelling and for the most part realistic (IMO surprisingly so for an RPG). The book is well-organized and laid [...]

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.
