Starguard Barracks at Skysend City

The Skysend City Starguard Barracks

Skysend City, the only town on the dusty, dried up desert world of Lee’s End, is by no means entirely unique among the hundreds of small mostly forgotten little communities scattered out over the frontiers of known space.  But it is, the last such place that can be reached by any form of public transportation.   You may start from Earth Prime in a first class starliner, but six weeks out you find yourself on a small McBrayne’s transport, little bigger than a shuttle sharing your first class seat with a crate of chickens and trying to keep the goats from eating your shoes.    

So why, you ask, would anyone venture to visit such a forsaken, out of the way, almost ghost town at the end of the known universe?  Red Star Mines has a regional office in Skysend City and operates a Class C Sandminer that plies the bottom of a dried up ocean 150 Km east of town.    However, most of the visitors come to see the ruins and archeological digs.   There were once, at least seven distinct civilizations here which over millennia’s of time blossomed and faded leaving some very unique remains behind them. 

Skysend City, at this time, is mostly a quiet, some-what, laid back kind of place,  where almost anything can, and does happen from time to time.    But in the early days, at the end of the Second Starwar, it was a wild and woolly place.   Every ship that unloaded at the port, was full of hard men and harder women.    People came from all over hoping for a new start working in the digs or just plain old tomb robbing.   Ex-soldiers, gunfighters, gamblers and prostitutes rubbed shoulders with the refugees displaced during the wars.

Such a situation could not remain peaceful for long and when the casualty rate exceeded thirty people one week the citizens, who formerly had never bothered to set up a government, now sent a petition to the Federation Colonial Authority pleading for help.   Unfortunately the Federation had its hands full with other problems and was unable to respond for the better part of an earth year.   The lawlessness in Skysend City was dealt with by Vigilantes.   By the time the Federation government had authorized a small garrison of Starguard in Skysend City there was nothing left for them to do but chase off the occasional Ralnai or Eli raider.  

Never-the-less, the old Barracks building is one of Skysend City’s landmarks and now serves as the Police headquarters. 

Reviresco’s kit of the Old Barracks building is a 6 in one kit with active layered .pdfs which gives you the choice of six different camouflage schemes and six national markings as well as layers of grunge. dust and battle damage.    The completed kit measures 8 x 5.25 x 5.75 inches and is designed to be built over foam core backing.

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.
