Dept. 7 Adv. Class Update: Voidsparrow


The Voidsparrow is an iconic symbol of mankind’s expansion
into deep space, a visible reminder of human courage, ingenuity, and
combat-readiness. Voidsparrows are scouts and soldiers, defenders and
explorers- they are cybernetically enhanced champions of humanity.
Voidsparrow flight wings patrol trade routes, protecting human startravellers
from space pirates and raiders, Lifechained xeno-monsters, and
hostiles of all kind, human and otherwise.

The noble starfighters are instantly recognizable thanks to their
gleaming, high-gloss cyberarmor and the hawklike wings and combat
helmet that are their badges of rank. A mated pair of Voidsparrow partners
soaring alongside a Earth-registered sublight cargo hauler is a common
sight in most human operated ports of call. And an entire flight wing of
Voidsparrow warriors filling the sky during manuevers or during a large
scale engagement is an unforgettable sight.

Voidsparrow cyborgs are an advanced class designed for
use in a high-tech starfaring campaign set at Progress Level 7 or on
the verge of PL 8. The Voidsparrows work best in a campaign using
FTL travel. As written, Voidsparrows are intended for a slightly
less realistic, comic-book inspired sci-fi setting, though they can be
integrated into a ‘hard sci-fi’ setting simply by reducing the scope of
their activities from galaxy-wide to solar system-wide, as well as by
describing their distinctive bionics as being slightly cruder, relatively
untested prototypes.

Voidsparrow characters can function in a D20 Modern
campaign; they might be the first of their kind, wielding untested new
bionics and establishing the traditions of their order. In this case, the
first Voidsparrows might be an outgrowth of NASA or Department
Seven’s space program. The Voidsparrow can also be an alien visitor
or a time-traveller stranded in the past. However, while Voidsparrows
can function well planetside, they shine in deep space battles, and
some of their class abilities are useless without an enemy starship to
blast apart.

In the Psi-Watch and Otherverse America campaigns, Voidsparrows
represent a unique breed of military cyborg, an elite branch of the
world’s space navies. It’s easy to imagine these colorful, chromed
cyborg knights as Psi-Watch operatives, and its just as easy to imagine
them as lonely orbital warriors in the service of either the Lifer or
Choicer factions.

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.
