HardNova 2 RPG (PDF Collection)

Watermarked PDF
Take to the stars and smuggle exotic goods across the galaxy, solve mysteries aboard space liners, or explore the frontier. HardNova ][ includes alien races, starships, exotic abilities, ready-to-play scenarios, reference sheets, and numerous character, robot, and starship templates. Even Disposable Diceâ„¢ are included in this Virtual Boxed Setâ„¢.

HardNova ][ is very flexible and can be used for one-shot adventures or as a foundation for your own campaign. The included setting can be easily discarded and replaced by that of your favorite movie, television program, comic, or novel. Designed to be versatile, HardNova ][ is a toolkit for your own space opera adventures — only your imagination can limit your enjoyment.

Optimized System & File
HardNova ][ uses the genreDiversion i rules, which provide intuitive and dynamic mechanics, utilizing 2 six-sided dice. The design of the PDF file has also been optimized, so you can download and print it more quickly than similarly-sized products.

While the rules are straight-forward and easy to learn, we recommend that at least one player understands the concepts of roleplaying and gamemastering.

Space Opera Collection
This 115-page download includes:
  • HardNova ][
    The main rules with 4 scenarios and over 40 templates.

  • HardNova ][ Enhancement Pack
    New rules, alien race, and a scenario to accompany them, plus 6 templates.

  • Miniseries Alpha: The Vanguard
    A complete, 5-part episodic story with 6 ready-to-use characters.

...[Gimmicks] include the game's numerous psionic abilities, which I should note are laid out in most simple, easy to access manner I've ever seen... [the] advanced rules system, which is actually interesting while not detracting from the game's elegant simplicity... Speaking of ease and simplicity, lets move on to the star ships. Stats just like your character, only with a couple of additions such as shielding. They even take damage just like you... if you want to plug in your own world there's no problem... "

PIG has done a great job creating an easy to learn, multi-genre rules system (genreDiversion i) that actually works really well in play, and the Space Opera Sci-Fi setting of HardNova II is no exception. The rules are easy enough to learn that I was able [...]

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.
