Scrappers: the Molucca Enigma


The Molucca Enigma

With the purification of cosmic fuel, exploration and colonization of deep space became easy and profitable. Spaceships which had once bankrupted entire nations were used up and discarded when their drives failed. The graveyard of space gave rise to a new class of spaceman. These hardy adventurers saw the many drifting space hulks as a ready source of salvage, and their removal as a steady source of employment. They have become known as


Entering the Command BridgeThe Molucca Enigma is a completely self-contained rule set and adventure path. Your characters plunge right into the action when a derelict spaceship shows up in the Molucca System. Your team of Scrappers is on retainer with Molucca Prime just so you can clean up this kind of junk. Problem is, you're not the only team of salvage experts bidding for the job. Get to the drifting space hulk and find out if it needs to be towed to the scrap yard or dropped into the sun. But don't take too long, other scrappers are trying to get their bid in first, and there's something about this particular wreck that makes your space senses go all squirrelly...

Scrappers takes you back to the future of the 1950s, when daring and cleverness carried the day, every planet had a breatheable atmosphere, and every spacesuit had a fishbowl for a helmet. 

The Molucca Enigma will continue in episode 2, The Molucca Entrapment, and race to an exciting conclusion in episode 3, The Molucca Exigency. 

Smoking rockets, scrappers! Stand by to raise ship!

Scrappers: the Molucca Enigma uses a lite version of the 1-2-Lock System. Create your own characters or use one of four pregenerated adventurers.

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.
