As hostilities between the major nations continue, all factions mobilize their main fleets, bringing battleships and heavy carriers into battlezones across the Solar System. The conflict has spilled over into heavily-traveled trade lanes, unwillingly drawing merchants and neutral nations into the fighting.

Lightning Strike is a game of tactical fleet combat set in the universe of the Jovian Chronicles, simulating the numerous space battles fought between the solar powers in the early 23rd century. The Companion is a supplement for the game, completing the space-based rules set with provisions for giant colony cylinders, magnetic sails, escort units and and even nuclear weaponry! Within these covers you will find:

  • Advanced rules for combined ships, colony cylinders, escort/strike missions and more!
  • Extensive campaign rules, including resource management and strategic deployment;
  • Campaign, Historical and Training scenarios;
  • Information and game statistics for Mercury, Mars, Titan, Nomads, STRIKE and United Space Nation Guards combat spacecraft;
  • Four full-color modeling pages.

In addition to the basic Lightning Strike rulebook, a few six-sided dice, miniatures/counters, pen and paper are required to use this manual.

Selected vehicles and texts from the upcoming Mercury Planetbook by Paul Lippincott appeared uncredited in the Lightning Strike Companion.

Scanned image
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.
