Hive of Bone (Sci-Fi Starter Adventure)


A hunk of space rock has been floating near one of the Star Republic’s space ports for some time. For a while, scientists believed that it was nothing more than your usual asteroid that had loosed itself from its general gravitational rotation. However, a probe sent to check it out has disappeared. It only managed to transmit one reading back before it vanished. The transmission seems to indicate that the asteroid is made up of . . . bone. Now, the Galactic Guild is asking members to take a ship out to the asteroid to inspect it more closely. 

Hive of Bone is a starter adventure module for the Micro Chapbook Sci-Fi Roleplaying game. All the rules you need to play are included.

How adapatable are these "chapbooks" to Traveller? Stats easy to convert?

I have never played Traveller. As such, I'm going to venture to say, "no." This isn't an adaption of any previously existing game system. On the other hand, the game is designed to be very simple, so maybe if you're very creative you could adapt it.

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.
