Mining Colony

DramaScape Blueprint Volume 05

This Product is a 2 level, Black and White Blueprint of an Outer Space Mining Colony. It is 72 inches by 60 inches at its widest point.

The Product comes with the Hex, Square and No Overlay versions and the Virtual Tabletop Maps.

“The trick is to make the people look where you want them to look. We are just a normal mining operation after all officially.”

Mining Colony is a hand-drawn, black and white, blueprint style map. The product includes a subterranean mining level and a ground level base on the planet’s surface. Each individual area in the spacecraft is labeled and includes hand-drawn objects signifying all of the objects in the area. 

Mining Colony is designed for use as a standalone map or with the Space Station blueprint map. The colony has enough bedrooms for 21 colonists.

Mining Colony is intended for use in science fiction games. 

Adventure hook for use with this product.

Pilfering from History: The mining company chose to excavate at exactly the right spot. Not only did they find rich veins of ore, but also strange and bizarre alien artifacts. Rather than register them with the government of the solar system, they decided to make molds of the alien artifacts, hollow out the cores of some of their mineral cubes, and replace them with the alien artifacts in molds. They sent these specific cores to their corporate headquarters for study of the alien artifacts at their research labs. The expansion of the mining colony added colonists who work to make the colony self-sufficient. 

Pirates often attack the transport shuttle but the fighters have fended them off up to now. This time, a single alien fighter attacked the transport shuttle and managed to disable one of the fighters before a lucky shot by his wingman destroyed the alien ship. The mining company sent home for help from their corporate headquarters immediately. 

The Player Characters are mercenaries bringing a new fighter with them to the mining colony. As soon as they land in the hangar, people inside the facility panic. Some sort of alien carrier has appeared. The fighter on the landing strip is bombed and most of the personnel panic and flee to the subterranean level via the elevator. The alien carrier lands on the north side of the strip and sends an organic tube to the walls of the transport ship and hangar. An acidic ichor breaches the metal walls and alien soldiers pour into the shuttle and mining facility. The nearly extinct alien race intends on getting their artifacts back with only the group and a few brave men of the mining colony standing in their way.

Nice simple yet elegant plans for a mining colony on a planet, moon or large asteroid - somewhere without an atmosphere, or at best with one that's unbreathable. The base exists on two levels (more if you decide to add in bits of DramaScape's Space Sta [...]

Format
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.
