Lightspeed: Old Earth Empires

The Galactic region around Earth is the realm of the Old Earth Empires, the ancient decadent powers that originally colonized space. The horror and destruction of the Core Wars and the subsequent secession of both the Pan Solar Empire and the Interstellar Federation ended their domination and reduced the once-great nations to second-rate players squabbling for scraps in the shadows of the new Galactic Superpowers.

Now, after centuries of uneasy peace, the modern Old Earth Empires are beginning to re-arm and shift to a more aggressive strategy. Many believe it is only a matter of time until the next devastating wave of Core Wars begin anew.

Lightspeed: Old Earth Empires provides gamemasters and players alike with a wealth of information on five of these interstellar colonial nations: Imperial Japan, the United Sates, the European Union, the African Consortium, and Brazil. Within, you'll find complete histories of these rivals along with descriptions of their law enforcement and military organizations.

Included are 26 new NPC write-ups suitable as PC templates, 24 new starships and starfighters, and 7 new vehicles and Battle-frames. There's also advanced character creation options for creating law enforcement officers and agents, military officers and enlisted personnel, titles of nobility, and one new alien race.

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.
