Instant Aliens

Watermarked PDF

Finally! An alien life creator that builds plausible ecosystems from microbes up to plant, animal, and sapient species.

Alien encounters are some of the most exciting aspects of science fiction. In many cases, though, the beings depicted are only slight variations of our own species, often with barely a thought given to the other creatures that populate the native ecosystem.

With =GALACTIC BAROQUE = INSTANT ALIENS your horizons will be vastly expanded! Not merely a rulebook for random alien generation, this guide helps you create exotic, plausible extraterrestrial biospheres from kingdom level down to clades and species. All details of intelligent beings, as well as animals, plants, and microbes are influenced by the initial conditions of the world from which they arose and the organisms from which they descend.

Did intelligent life emerge on this exoplanet? Learn its strengths and weaknesses, determine its technology level, and discover how far from its home (and even out into space) the species has explored. Is your universe filled with humanoid aliens and anthropomorphic beasts? No problem! Our own future will see genetic engineering and directed evolution, where animal species may be uplifted to humanlike sapience. An entire chapter of INSTANT ALIENS will help you through this process.

Writers of any genre, gamers, roleplayers, world-builders, extraterretrial enthusiasts, and more will find this deeply researched book both useful and fascinating. It's a great way to introduce children and students to the wonders of life, too!

Although not required for use, the companion book INSTANT UNIVERSE provides all the information needed to fully detail alien homeworlds, systems, and even galaxies, plus integrates perfectly with INSTANT ALIENS

Interested in this. Is this still a viable project?

Absolutely. It's nearly finished at this point and should, depending on my mundane employment workload, be complete in a few weeks. As is, you can create everything from microbes to intelligent species; I'm working on the technology, civilization, and uplift systems which are nearly done.

Thanks for the fast response. I have run and played everything out there, and this is a new approach to worldbuilding. Always looking for variants.

File Size:

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.
