A Season in Hel


This supplement provides a short science-fiction campaign for control of a strategically critical spaceport, Hel.

There are three main battles, the optional ones (depending on choice, and how things go), and a one-off adventure/encounter set in the Hel milieu.  Each of the main battles also provides a way to set up force outside the campaign environment.

The scenarios are written as a supplement for Quick Intermediate Level Skirmish, our free rule set.  We also provide guidelines for picking equivalent forces from other gaming systems, if you want. 

The .pdf contains:

  • Seven scenarios, with set up, terrain diagram, and victory conditions
  • Twenty pages of 2D and 3D terrain pieces to cover all the Scenarios
  • Stats for infantry, armour, air cavalry, and naval guns in QILS
  • Weather

The weather system in A Season in Hel is the crowning jewel of the game.  It is quick and simple to play (no tables, charts, or nomograms), yet provides a robust, unpredictable, yet logical meterological environment to beat on your troops as they beat on each other.  There are even a dozen options for adapting the weather system to other environments like desert, derelect space station, and the toxic atmosphere of Venus (or another like planet).

    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.
