100 Problems to Encounter at a Starport


This is a collection of 100 different problems that could be encountered at a starport. Some are most suited for planetary starport, others for space-based ones whilst most can be used for either, albeit with tweaking in some cases. They range from minor inconveniences to dangerous to potentially disastrous.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here are some sample results:

  • Drugs have been found in cargo that has been stored at the port by unknown parties.
  • Electricity starts arcing from a piece of equipment which appears to be suffering from an overload.
  • Emergency doors seal off part of the port, though there doesn't appear to be anything that requires this be done.
  • Engines fire on a ship getting ready to depart, but they are turned up too high and cause damage to the surroundings.
  • Equipment is malfunctioning as some sort of small creatures have got to various cables and conduits and chewed through them.

One page is the front cover, one the front matter and half is ads.

I'd love to see something like this developed to the level of adventure seeds rather than just adventure hooks, but this looks like fun (I tried to buy it, but DriveThru was being DriveThru and the site just kept stalling on the transaction ... I'll try again in a day or so; looking forward to reading it)!

It's possible - it requires more adventure-creation practice! - that short hooks like this might wind up being made into short adventures.

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.
