Far Avalon Book 1: Background and Spacecraft

Far from the Home Worlds, the Far Avalon region was for many years an underdeveloped backwater. Now, it may be the only enclave of humans left in the universe. With the inexplicable failure of the Lubeck Conduit, the people of Far Avalon must find their own future. Some seek to build empires, some search for a way home, while others have less obvious plans.

 

Far Avalon is a region in turmoil, a place where a handful of daring individuals can make a difference. A new order may emerge, or chaos may descend. Perhaps some external threat is about to fall upon the people of Far Avalon… or it may be that the greatest danger comes from within. 

 

Far Avalon is a complete science-fiction game setting created by Martin J Dougherty. Book 1 details the history of the region and its power structures today. From the gangs of First Landing Starport to the bitterly divided remnants of the Fleet; from the emergent empires to the mysterious but benevolent First Church of Humanity Arisen, this book presents their capabilities, intentions and motivations. 

 

Book 1 focuses on the world of Far Avalon itself. Once a centre of commerce, a base for the colonisation of the region, it has suffered economic collapse and disasters, becoming a hotbed of political machinations as the city-states of Far Avalon strive for dominance and the chance to reclaim their era of greatness.

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.
