Welcome to Xboat!

This is a science fiction fanzine, with most of the material suggested by fans who love Traveller. It's about discussion, example, and bold ideas.

Great Content...

Each issue is at least 24 half-pages (5.5 x 8.5), and has content such as:

* Starships profiled and illustrated to inspire.

* Equipment. Various types, ready to use.

* Characters.  Detailed for use in your games.

* Scenarios.  Situations to drop your players into...

* Aliens.  Strange new peoples to visit and interact with... or play one as a character!

* Beasts.  New, interesting, and perhaps dangerous creatures await the intrepid explorer.

* Robots.  Yes!  Robots are first-class members of the Traveller game now.

...And Beautiful Artwork 

Illustration is half of inspiration. My fantastic backers made it possible to jam in a generous helping of quality art into every issue.

I have leveraged the experienced and capable Ian Stead, Robert Pearce, Tim Osborne, and Brian Stearns for beautifully themed artwork.  Ian's starships are iconic, and Robert's characters and creatures are inspired.  Tim's aliens are simply fantastic.  Last but not least, Brian is admired for his work with Zaon, and his starship art is sleek and classy.

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.
