A Fistful of Spore Pods

A brochure adventure for Mothership RPG.

The gold rush is over. The spore pods of Hayden V, swelling in the magenta light of a dwarf star, are prized across the galaxy as hallucinogenic cosmetics for the rich. Unfortunately that same star is going to send a life-scouring solar flare over and through the forest moon in 24 hours. The rock’s been picked over, but there’s rumors of one last great pod bloom, one a prospector team could retire on. Only the desperate would try. But there’s more than enough desperation to go around in the ‘verse.

You’ve got a tip: the location of the Motherlode, a spore field of great richness. You rode a malfunctioning drop pod down to the surface. You have 24 hours to get down valley to the last Haruthers ship and off the moon as the star is going to emit a powerful solar flare, scouring all life from the planetoid. You can only carry so many pods with you.

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.
