Survey and Explore. A Starport Scum expansion

Watermarked PDF

One more rock floating in space. 

* * * * *

Welcome to Survey and Explore, an expansion pack for the Starport Scum game rules.

With this expansion, you will be able to land on any uncharted world and explore, using random scenery, sights and encounter tables to find interesting things to loot, explore or get eaten by.

This emulates the "hex-crawl" gameplay style used by some fantasy roleplaying games, where you explore a world map one hex, grid or region at a time seeing what you find.

This can be used as a travel mechanic for an existing campaign, as a diversion or even as a solo-campaign.

Random animal stat generation is included as well as well as a few notes to explain core rules terms to those using this with another rules system.

Survey and Explore is easy to use with other science fiction role playing games and campaign games, though any rules references are for Starport Scum.

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.
