[Alarm Klaxons sound.]

 “What is going on?”—Head Researcher

 “We don’t know sir. We’ve checked and all the aliens are still in containment.”—Scientist

 [Glass crashes as two plants burst into the hallway from the greenhouse and grab the scientist with vines!]

 “The alien plants…they are ambulatory! Run sir…Auggh”--Researcher

 SciFi Research Station includes a single interior level of a futuristic research station that could be located on a planet surface or as part of a space station. The area is entered via a door in the east center of the map opening up to a central hallway. There are five doors to the north and five doors to the south (for ten total rooms).

 SciFi Research Station can be used in horror, supers (especially as a mad scientist type of villain hideout), and near or far-future science fiction games.

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 Greenhouse Expansion: Last contact with the Interstellar Space Station (ISS) Magellan was over a week ago. A marine squad (the player characters) has been sent to the ISS Magellan to investigate a distress signal sent on repeat since then. The marine’s orders are to save the station if possible. If the marines determine that the ISS Magellan cannot be saved, they have been given authorization to activate a thermonuclear device inside the station. Upon arrival at the ISS Magellan, they find the station’s walls covered with plant life with heavy fronds and vines. Something moves within the foliage. Moving the fronds away, human beings and aliens alike have roots growing out of them. The alien plant is absorbing nutrients from them like they are soil. The alien plants attack the marines after this gruesome discovery. It is up to the group to fight off the alien plants and save the station or decide to nuke it to prevent further contamination by the alien plant life.

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.
