Aberrant: Elites


Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more of Santa's savings, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

Nova eiltes are paid millions of dollars to wage war for baseline clients.

Money can buy anything — governments, body counts and, some say, souls. Project Utopia calls elites thugs. The Teragen calls them toadies to their inferiors. Nevertheless, elites — high paid mercenaries, agents of the powers that be and darlings of the N! network — are more than happy to give up stability and peace for the glory of the battlefield and the comforts of blood-soaked wealth.

What would you do for money?

Aberrant: Elites reveals the lives of those novas who offer their services, ass-kicking and otherwise, for sale to the wealthy. This book exposes the shadowy DeVries Agency (and some of its even seedier competitors) and includes rules for creating your own elite agency. Learn how your character can rake in the big bucks through assassination, bodyguarding or simply ripping apart small third world countries. The best become unimaginably wealthy. The incompetent die in the mud and are forgotten. Which are you?

Hidden Lore

Release: Originally published July 10, 2000.

Cover: The cover features a battlefield with a number of baseline soldiers and several obvious novas flying or otherwise showcasing abnormal abilities. In the foreground, backlit by fire, is the elite Totentanz, who is impaling a soldier with one of his trademark twin spears.

Oops: Due to the vaguaries of publishing, Elites was published one month before Worldwide: Phase I, the book intended to push the timeline from 2008 to 2010. Elites itself pushes the timeline even further, to 2011, so those following the releases in order of publication were treated to a little back-and-forth as the "current" setting varied by three years between books.

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.
