Savage Battlelords Alliance Setting Guide


Explore the Battlelords Universe!

Battlelords is a game set in a dangerous future, where an Alliance of Humans and roughly a dozen other species are fighting for survival. Your Wild Cards are citizens of the Galactic Alliance, which spans large portions of the Milky Way. The species that comprise the Alliance pool their resources to expand, improve, and protect each other from external threats like the Arachnid hordes and the Atlantean nanite swarms. Despite their best efforts, the Arachnids (aka ‘Nids) have destroyed worlds and decimated populations as they advance into Alliance territory, during the 2nd Arachnid Incursion.

Inside the Alliance, the mega-corporations (aka mega-corps) make everything, own everything, and run everything from behind the scenes. Nearly everyone works for a mega-corp, and they employ armies of corporate mercenaries and spies to enforce their will and wage secret wars against their competitors.  Getting hired on as a corporate merc or spy is good pay, but you sign your life away for a contract measured in years.  You're expendable and every time you screw up the mega-corps just extend your contract.

I noticed this as well. I also did not see the METAPLOT details. Am I just missing it?

Just a quick heads-up: on pages 4 and 6, you have two overlapping headers, making it impossible to read what it’s actually saying. Hopefully you can fix this before it hits press!

You should not have to be told this, but the lack of bookmarks is a serious sin, as bookmarks for every pdf greater than 5 pages has been the standard for about 20 years. This book NEEDS bookmarks!

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.
