Beta Maxx X Quick Start

Watermarked PDF

The recently added outpost in the Sakkad System has encountered indigenous lifeforms. The Panstellar Federation of course started negotiations and soon after a contingent from various Interstellar Corporations made moves to open trade with the Sakkadians. After these trade negotiations, Keelta Resources Corporation gained contracts to extract minerals from moons of a gas giant in Sakkadian Space, and started Project 39.

After Project 39 had commenced, and a number of facilities constructed, there was a planetarist coup on Sakkad and the incoming government unilaterally ended all contracts with Corporations and gave a deadline for the removal of all non-Sakkadian persons and equipment other than the Panstellar Embassy. The Planetarists were allegedly chanting something to the effect of “Sakkadian System for Sakkadians!”

The Network has been extended out there, first with a local Network that has then been hooked up via FTL-Node Relays.

Keelta Resources Corporation is looking for a security detail to escort the final technical staff to the moons of Sakkad IV. Your job is to help salvage what can be salvaged, and destroy what equipment cannot be salvaged.

Your Team are entering the cargo hold of a landing craft of an interplanetary freighter belonging to Keelta Corporation; the landing craft is basically an empty box with engines and a cockpit. Carlos Antonio Maria del Vega is standing by the Launch Bay, looking like he might be being friendly or just checking that you all are leaving together. By the time you are clear of the station, Carlos is clear of the Launch Bay.

This is meant to be a quick start set of three different products:

  1. A Reduxx version of the Beta Maxx X rules
  2. Episode 1 - Project 39 of the "Damocles Intergalactic" Series 
  3. Episode 2 - Keelta Resources of the "Damocles Intergalactic" Series 

Inside Episodes 1 & 2 you'll find a variety of situations which could be used as examples of play, a Team of six Characters prebuilt for the start of a Series, and details for the various antagonists the Team will meet along the way. Also included is a blank Character Sheet at the back of each Episode that could be used for creating your own Characters.

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.
