Hell by Starlight

Watermarked PDF

These Science Fiction skirmish rules are based on the fire team. Whilst men move and fire as individuals, they are all part of combat units. Whether these units are regular infantry formations or the following of tribal or feudal chieftains doesn't matter. These formations attempt to keep together, and share a common reaction. This formation is normally between three and five figures. Two or three fire teams will form a squad, a couple of squads a platoon etc. When you start using Hell by Starlight, use a couple of fire teams a side, but with experience platoon scale actions will prove easy enough to run and with a couple of players a side you can even have games with up to fifty figures a side.

Also these rules have to cover a myriad scenarios, some which will happen, some which could happen, and some which almost certainly will not, but look like they will be fun to play. There is no "Official UniverseTM" There are possibilities for very hi-tech games, where you stretch the ECM rules to the full. There are also occasions where semi barbarians armed with dodgy firearms purchased from shady traders fight it out with other barbarians who have been less commercially aware and are armed with swords and bows.

You can also design your own aliens. But beware, at this scale you cannot just nuke them from orbit. It no longer possible to be sure.

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.
