Tricks & Guns. A Five Parsecs expansion


Whether you are looking for some shiny new hardware or want to fight more devious enemies, this pack has something for you.

In this expansion for Five Parsecs From Home 2nd edition, you receive the following systems:

* A new mechanic for finding and utilizing merchants of rare goods, with 10 new items to purchase like the Mk II dual pistol or high-velocity ammo.

This option gives you more flexibility, things to blow your hard-earned Credits on and some fun trinkets to experiment with on the battle field.

* The Enemy Ploy system allowing the enemy force to conduct flank attacks or have a sniper unexpectedly appear on the battle field. The longer a battle goes on, the higher the chance of facing an enemy ploy.

This system is great for adding more unpredictability to a battle, as well as increasing the challenge level for a battle-hardened crew.

* * *
Both systems can be introduced into your on-going campaign right away and can be used or removed at any point. If you want to only use Ploys for some enemies but not others for example, you are free to do so.

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.
