Rude Awakening

Watermarked PDF

It looked so good when we took our first job - top salary, unique experiences, explore exotic colony worlds beyond the vast. They didn't say our first ship was aboard a pre-Drift tech starship and that we'd have to spend the next 18 months in cold sleep, this was not the unique experience we were hoping for. I hope we don't have a rude awakening before its done.

Rude Awakening is a FREE one-shot module designed for use with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game for a party of four 1st level characters. This adventure works best as the 1st module in a campaign arc. This is the first installment to a series of Starfinder Roleplaying Game Compatible products Gamer Printshop will be releasing over the next year.

This product includes; 18 page one-shot adventure module and appendices for new rules as a PDF. A separate layered PDF containing print ready adventure map and starship deck plan as full size maps and sliced to letter size for home printing. A Zip file containing JPGs of the map and deck plan without a grid for use with virtual tabletop applications.

I ran this little adventure for a small group last night and they loved it. They want me to continue on with this and see where it goes. Thanks for the freebie of fun.

Missing Hit Points for Salvage Drones also no damage or critical listed for drones. May also be a good idea to list them as Constructs. Text box page 9 not clear what Reflex save does or even how you succeed. In Appendix 2 you list DCs for the Cold Sleep roll, but don't say what Ability/Skill to use.

The salvage drone uses the same rules as the Mechanics combat drone, and this drone is controlled by the Mechanics in adjacent chambers in the module. The rules regarding Reflex are word for word the same as those used for exploding traps in the back of the Starfinder Core rulebook.

I don't appear to have the maps PDF. I have a one page PDF with print instructions, and a couple of JPGs without grids but not the maps with grids?

You should have been taken to a page with 3 downloads with your purchase - the main PDF, the map printing instructions PDF (that one contains the maps), and a Zip file with all the maps in virtual tabletop ready JPG files, to download all three products. Now you can go to your accounts link at the top of DTRPG page. Click "view all your products", look for Rude Awakening, and you should find all three products there - and download the ones you don't yet have. I peeked into my products page and I see they are all there available. Go check, it's there.

Yeah I downloaded them all, and I'm not sure what to tell you. My PDF reader reports that there are no additional layers in either of the PDFs. The map printing instructions one is a single page with *just* the instructions.

The printing instructions page contains a screenshot of Acrobat with the file "rude-awakening-maps.pdf" open and a file with this name has not been uploaded. Is there any chance you could double-check the downloads?

Try it again - I just fixed the instructions PDF to include all maps and sliced maps like it was supposed to in the first place.

Well, I don't have the starfinder core book YET but this is DEFINITELY going to be one of the first adventures I try out. Not only does it leave the PCs in a tight spot from the very beginning, death is almost a certainty if no one is thinking or is wasting a lot of time (and air...). This is a very cool starting idea & I'm REALLY looking forward to running it. It starts with a bang and just goes from there. A great rapid soundtrack would do nicely playing in the background.

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.
