Squaddies: Station Assault

Watermarked PDF

Eight years ago, the enemy took Hilder Station. It’s time to take it back! The PCs are an infantry or marine fireteam in the first wave to hit the docks. They’ll retake the station, corridor by gruelling corridor. Since this is the science fiction equivalent of street fighting your way across a big town or small city (population approx. 130,000), this is a combat heavy scenario. There are also opportunities for combat engineers to make use of their skills to get past the defences and all those pesky safety features designed to stop fires spreading or the atmosphere venting to space. The setting is a space station with spin gravity – a rotating Stanford torus design. So there is no artificial gravity.

Resources for the GM include:

  • Description of the space station and its normal day-to-day function;
  • GM and player versions of maps of the strategically important sectors of the decks;
  • A map template for you to design your own decks;
  • Details and maps of important buildings;
  • Equations for calculating line of sight on a curved deck (in case you want a bigger or smaller space station);
  • Enemy tactics and plans for the station defence;
  • Story seeds for an optional training scenario, with an opportunity for an inter-service bar brawl;
  • Bios for a whole platoon of NPCs with whom the GM can utilise on this and future missions.

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.
