Nova Solis... The legendary home of the Ancients...

A tiny pocket reality containing untold treasures untouched since the Ancients’ departure from our universe.

When a functioning gate was first discovered it became a race for the great empires of the galaxy to be the first to mount an expedition and claim the riches of Nova Solis. In our greed we did not stop to consider why the Ancients abandoned Nova Solis until we encountered the Entity...

Its attacks came from out of nowhere and decimated our defenses... Great fleets of ships made from shadow pouring out of enormous tears in the fabric of space.

Its power is growing and the black hole is becoming more active... Even worse, many of the stars near the Nova Solis gate are becoming unstable... We have to get out of here but we can’t let this thing enter into our universe... Our only hope is to recover the ancient knowledge and to seal it inside!

Nova Solis is a semi-cooperative 4X (eXpand, eXplore, eXploit, eXterminate) space game for 1 to 6 players where the players must work together to survive against the malevolent Entity while also trying to claim the riches of Nova Solis to lead their empire to victory!

The game features the following:

- eXpand with 6 Asymmetrical player Empires each with different technological advantages.
- eXplore a dynamically created game board. Scan distant stars for resource containing planets, asteroids and nebulae and discover them onto the game board.
- eXploit a deep technology and strategic resource system with over 60 different upgrades.
- eXterminate the autonomous AI controlled opponent using a unique dice-crafting combat system.

Initially the players will start with a small fleet of ships and limited resources which they will use to colonize sectors, build their forces and develop new technology. As the game proceeds, the Entity will grow in power and its attacks will become stronger, eventually causing a supernova explosion that will annihilate the players!

Nova Solis can also be played Solo, Fully Co-Operative or as a Fully Competitive experience.

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.
