Your Empire Awaits... "Those also serve that stand and weld." War is not just about defeating your enemy on the field of battle. A war can just as easily be won by avoiding it with diplomacy, wonder weapons developed by your scientists in secret, being the best at knowing other people's secrets, on the floor of a stock exchange, in the busy floors of your factories, or the cavernous interiors of mighty shipyards. But, in the end, the matter must be decided one way or another. Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war...

Victory by Any Means (VBAM): Campaign Guide is a generic sci-fi campaign system that can interface with existing tactical war game rules or else operate as a stand- alone campaign environment. Unlike some campaign systems, VBAM is easy to run - both for players and gamemasters alike. The time savings is even more important considering the breadth of the rules: research, intelligence networks, space and ground combat, colony insurrections -- rules for all of these (and more) are included in the VBAM campaign rules.

This modular rules system is designed to integrate seamlessly into your favorite game universe. The main book includes several existing player species to get you started and rules and ideas to create your own source material. Several pre-created source materials are available to expand your gaming universe.

Well written and easily adaptable system that with the addition of supplements allows a full blown solitaire adaptation to the core moderated game. I have played VBAM many times and the only complaint I could fathom would come from individuals that de [...]

I bought this in October 2005, and I have been playing in two PBEM games for quite some time. While it is written to be able to be a campaign system for a tabletop wargame (such as for playing, say, Babylon 5 Wars or Star Fleet Battles with your frien [...]

Another excellent VBAM publication! I found it most useful in understanding why some of the things in the FASB edition were done the way they were. The VBAM people are also very good about taking suggestions for improving their products.<br>< [...]

A fairly well written game. There are a few items that could use a more detailed system though the openness of the system itself does allow for house-rules in situations where the CM feels that the detail is lacking. <br><br> <b>LIKED [...]

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.
