Five Parsecs From Home

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $7.99


While Five Parsecs will be updated in the future to provide a stand-alone game experience, for now, the original version has been made available as a Pay What You Want download.

Please note that it was written with the original FiveCore rules in mind and need a little conversion work for use with 3rd edition, though you should have minimal difficulties.

Salvage crews, free traders, mercenaries, bounty hunters, tax collectors and secret agents. The Fringes of colonized space are teeming with those who seek fortune, freedom or are too crazy to fit in anywhere else.

Bounty hunters are on your trail, you're pretty sure the new girl that just joined the crew is crazy and that battle droid you bought last week seems to be convinced it's in love. Time to lock and load. You're Five Parsecs From Home.


Five Parsecs From Home is a skirmish science fiction game where you follow a small band of unique characters, as they try to make their fortunes on the backwaters of human space. Watch your group advance from game to game, learning new skills, finding alien artifacts and contending with everything the Fringes can throw at you.

Using the Five Men/FiveCore system, the basic game mechanics are extremely quick to learn and incorporate elements like reaction fire and one of the simplest and fastest suppression mechanics out there.

You get fully fledged campaign rules with random events and encounters, a wide range of possible characters, enemies and opponents and a flexible system that covers items such as psionics, trade, bluffing and randomly generated encounters and enemies.

Look at your shelf. Pick out 5 miniatures you don't get to use too much. Roll up some characters and see where it takes you. 


PLEASE NOTE: This is an expansion for the FiveCore system. You will require a copy of the FiveCore main rules (or Five Men in Normandy) to use these rules.

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.
