Five Parsecs: Salvage Jobs

Watermarked PDF

This expansion adds Salvage Jobs to the Five Parsecs From Home game system.

With these rules you can obtain a license, dig around old starship wrecks and get in a shoot-out over the loot.

Updated, tweaked and improved from the original version, this expansion includes all the extra detail needed to work in the current version of the Five Parsecs rules set, letting your crew take on a quest one day, a salvage job the next and fight off alien invaders on Thursday!

If you are familiar with the original version, now salvage jobs are simply another mission type you can get involved with in the game, using the same crew. It also benefits from the many improvements to Five Parsecs such as the massively increased Enemy table

Note that this is an expansion to Five Parsecs From Home. It is NOT a stand-alone title.

Players who prefer a simpler stand-alone experience can check out the original version here as a Pay What You Want title

So I have the original stand alone version and I was wondering if this version is different enough to be worth buying? Any details?

This version allows you to integrate salvage missions directly into your From Home campaign and use the much bigger enemy tables from that game.
There are now more variation in the game worlds with regards to salvage jobs and a lot of the mechanics regarding how contacts work have been cleaned up and smoothed out.

I'd say if you are happy with the current version, wait until there's a sale for From Home and then grab that and Salvage Jobs. I think you'll appreciate the updated stuff, but it may not change your life or anything.

If you've played the current version to death and need new challenges or just want a "bigger" universe, grab it now.

Does that help?

Hey and thanks for a quick replay! Yes, that helps. And by "There are now more variation in the game worlds" you mean that Planetary Generator supplement is integrated into this book, or is it a new material?

From Home features some special tables to generate "features" for the world. It is not identical to the planetary generator.

So in the excitement to get this part out there, I didn't really think about the potential impact for people who may have recently purchased the stand-alone title.

So in the interest of customer friendliness, how about this:
If you bought the stand-alone Salvage Crew rules in November, December or January (so about 3 months), email me at and I'll give you a free code to get the supplement.

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.
