Dead in Space

Watermarked PDF

Dead in Space is a series of one-shot space horror modules designed for use with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game. Each adventure is designed for varying character levels to negotiate, all encounters include 3 difficulty levels designed for specific party levels. Full color maps and deck plans are included in the product, and as add-on downloads for both printable and virtual tabletop ready use.

Over the last four decades, Anomaly Investments has fired millions of deep space probes into colonized space and beyond. The probes were programmed to land on unclaimed planets, moons and ateroids; once there they would gather information, take scans and samples, and send all the detail Anomaly needed to identify new investment opportunities. Two weeks ago, a probe sent Anomaly images of the Scoundrel, a ship lost in space over 35 years ago. There are thousands of ghost stories told about colonized space, the Scoundrel features in several.

A mining company, FiveCorp, lost contact with two supply ships and a mining operation on an asteroid the ships were heading towards. Over 1200 people - humans and enfaddin - were never heard from again. Fragmented accounts, hearsay and garbled communications never satisfactorily explained what happened to them. Rumors of the sightings of the ship or the asteroid have always been hoaxes. The images from the probe are the first real clues in those 35 years.

Anomaly would like to know...

What's included:

  • An introduction to the Cronusverse
  • Five adventures that can be played separately or as a longer connected adventure
  • Five starship deck plans and planetary station playable maps
  • New themes, playable races and playable characters
  • New weapons, technology and NPCs of varying levels
  • Excerpts from Deepwell's Database of Documented Dangers which catalouges rogue robots, alien threats, artificial intelligences, and tons of technological traps

Dude, something other that a map preview would be nice.

I don't know if it will work, but I just attempted to change the PDF/Flash previews to start at the beginning of the first one-shot in this publication. Hopefully it will update sometime today, so you can check it out - it was not my intention to just show a map preview, so maybe this will help. Give it some time to refresh, though. Note, I don't know why the current preview isn't showing - that's an issue with DrivethruRPG, not me.

Do you have a preview that isn't a map?

What are you looking for? These are one-shot modules, there's really not that many maps at all. It mostly text that occur on mapped locations.

I liked the look of this, but my feedback is to fix the labelling on the Scoundrel map. They don't match the description (not sure if anybody has mentioned this before).

Hope that helps... I am looking forward to trying to scare the pants of my players.

I will do a look see of the Scoundrel map and see how I can best fix, but thank you for pointing that out. Although Trevor wrote this not me (the publisher), but I did the maps, because that's what I really do more than writing or designing. So if there is something that doesn't match, I can fix it from the map-makers side. Somebody just gave a 3 star rating for this product - if that was you, it would really help if you told me what exactly was wrong to rate it so low, so I can fix it and maybe improve the rating. If not you, I hope someone can point out what is wrong. Though 3 stars, is not 1 star, it's still too low for my comfort. Quality control is so important to me. Let me check on that and maybe give this an update to fix the issue. Again, thank you.

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.
