Watermarked PDF

It’s been five hundred years since the aliens came and almost as long since they took the Earth away from us.

Now we live in the cracks and crannies of the galaxy with ten thousand other outcast species, scraping up everything we need to live day to day: water, food, even air.

At least we have The Network. The Imperial Races may own all the garden spots, but ninety-nine out of a hundred places it connects are too cold, too hot, too arid or just too all-around awful to interest them. That’s the stage we play on now. Maybe one day we’ll get our own back, but right now our business is survival.

Outcast is an OSR SF RPG using the free Cepheus Engine core rules (available via DriveThruRPG) or other similar game systems. Play as humans or one of five alien races, using any one of fifteen adventure seeds and eleven worlds as a starting point--or use the included rules to create your own.

Outcast has a very original setting, with humanity having been evicted from Earth by superhitech aliens. Our descendants are forced to eke out their lives on marginal worlds that are interconnected by stargates. Unfortunately, the book is too thin to [...]

For once a truly original concept in RPGs! And even better, humans aren't the dominant or "special" race (a la Traveller, Babylon 5, Star Trek, most sci fi books ever...) Apart from a few typos, it's well produced. I'd like to see adventures [...]

A sandbox setting that combines several underused sci-fi tropes (underused in RPG's anyway). Earth was conquered by a hyper advanced alien race and humanity has been exiled to a distant, harsh “reservation” world where they have managed to eke out [...]

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.
