Close Quarters: The Prometheus Incident

Selected Option:

Close Quarters is a fast-paced print 'n play boardgame of futuristic man-to-man combat, played on maps created from multiple room tiles. Using easy-to-learn game mechanics, The Prometheus Incident places players in the roles of the defending crewmembers of the Earth Protectorate Ship Prometheus or the troopers of an assaulting rebel faction intent on capturing the vessel for their own purposes, with battles fought within the confines of the key areas of the ship.

Close Quarters: The Prometheus Incident includes:

*Complete game rules for playing Close Quarters, including rules that will be used in future combat modules;
*Over 30 unique room and corridor map tiles, rendered at 300dpi for best printing results. Use them in the provided scenarios, those of your own design, or to spice up the combat layouts of your favorite SciFi RPG.
*Five highly replayable scenarios that allow players to re-create the more intense segments of the action aboard the Prometheus.
*Background fiction describing the basis of the overall conflict and each of the scenarios.
*All of the counters, markers, and reference sheets necessary to play - everything but dice!

Close Quarters can also be played on any RPG-compatible map overprinted with 1" squares, allowing players to use self-created or commercially available maps or deck plans from their collection when playing this game.

The CARDS print product option contains all of the game counters, charts, markers, room and corridor tiles pre-printed on 8.5" x 11" heavy stock sheets, ready to be mounted on backer board (or used as they are), to play all of the scenarios from this Close Quarters module.

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.
