Hostile Space


Hostile Space is a space mecha combat game where the focus is on maneuver within three-dimensions.

It is the dawn of The New Age for humanity as the Solar System has been colonized with the help of the Fold Drive. Four great powers hold humanity together by cooperating through an extra-governmental organization called the Concert of the Solar System. Between the Great Powers an assortment of Free Holds, or small colonies; struggle for survival in the shadow of the Great Powers. The Great Powers compete for their spheres of influence with these Free Holders to gain commercial and political benefit within the Concert. It is a time of cut-throat colonial rivalry and Great Power tensions. It is a time of conflict.  

In games of Hostile Space, players will manage and maneuver 2-12 units per side that represent Combat Suits, interceptors, support ships and more. This is a small-scale, Model-vs-model level of engagement where the fighting is up-close and personal. The focus is on engaging and evading by pivoting, turning, moving, and changing heights while managing your fire arcs and ammo. Mechanics are resolved using six-sided dice, maneuver cards, and measurement for tactical game play. Life is cheap compared to hardware.    

The primary design goals for the game are: 

  1. Scale and model agnostic – Use the models you want to use
  2. Maneuver is critical
  3. Player skill in piloting the units of the game is key
  4. Death can come from any direction, up, down, left, right, behind, or straight ahead!
  5. A campaign system where you can create and build your own Ace pilots
  6. Military focused mecha; not super-robot, Kaiju, or Over-the-top mecha

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.
