Battlestations 2.0 Quickstart

Watermarked PDF

Battlestations is the game of heroic starship adventure that integrates ship to ship and boarding action in a hybrid boardgame/rpg. The cool thing about this game is that your starship moves on the hex map simultaneously with your characters moving on the square grid based starships. The ship to ship and shipboard action is integrated. You move around your ship and operate the titular “Battlestations” to activate your ship’s modules. Use Piloting skill in Helm to turn or accelerate. Use Engineering in the Engine to get more power and use Combat skill to launch Missiles or fire the Cannon. Where you are on the ship matters because when enemy ships shoot back at you, you might get personally damaged or have to move to repair the damaged module.  You can use the Teleporter, boarding missiles or docking to go to an enemy ship to have boarding action.

This is a one vs. many game but can be played unmoderated, solitaire, or pvp. The description here assumes the traditional one versus many format in a campaign.

One player takes on the role of the enemy. They run the game for everybody else. They are the equivalent of a “dungeon master” in a role-playing game but since Battlestations is a boardgame, the enemy plays to win. I’ll have more about that later.

The other players each play a character working together as the crew of a starship.

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.
