In 5150: New Beginnings you’re thrust into a bustling, living, urban environment, hundreds of years in the future…or maybe it’s now but just far, far away. Your goal is to take your Character, your “Star”, as far as it can go. Acquire wealth, fight crime, commit crimes, live large or fly under the radar; it’s up to you.

Five Character Classes and thirty different Alien races, including Robots.

Exploring Alien worlds for adventure and profit.

A gaming environment where no two games ever play exactly alike.

All this and much more.

5150: New Beginnings can be played solo, same side against the game (Co-op) or head to head. Play on the Battle Boards with the Counters or with any minis you may already have. 5150: New Beginnings is all about the Story – your Story.

I can offer it here and on my site. Here would be PDF then you print on cardstock. My site, I can talk to the printer, and he can set up Battle Boards and real counters.

I have a lot of the 5150 rules before battleboards. Are there any plans to offer counters & battleboards separately?

It has everything you need for a Firefly or Johnny pneumonic/ cyberpunk campaign. Considering the vast scope of rules covering everything you need to play solo, the lighter 2d6 approach allows for quicker resolutions to challenges.

What is the difference between this one and the one from rebel minis?

This is a newer version. It's mostly simplified/streamlined, and although the rules for miniature battles are included the combat is meant to be played in an abstracted form on battlebords.

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.
