"This is the Marika Karu. We've been attacked by some kind of creature out in space  mayday...  send help ... heavily armed help."

In the depths of space, strange creatures live. Some feed off passing starships while others live and feed of the fabled Karu Reef; a large semi-sentient biomass. The resources the Reef provides certainly makes the risk of being eaten by a giant Star Angel tempting. What about those reports of unknown ships patrolling the Barakun Nebula? Could they be true?

In this book for the Arclight system, you will find:

  • The history and rules for the Karu Reef
  • Two reef-dwelling creatures
  • Four space-dwelling creatures
  • The mysterious Barakun
  • The mighty Barakun Tabor Shields
  • Six new ships from the Barakun fleet
  • The brand new slider for every faction in the game

So venture forth into the reef, what is the worst that could happen?

Well ? yes, but maybe you will get lucky.

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.
