Plundered Stars


Space is Vast and Empty. Like a Mausoleum. A Tomb. 

*PocketQuest 2023*

The Fermi Paradox it seems is not paradoxical after all, humanity is just very late to the party. The great races, and alien civilisations and interstellar empires rose and flourished across our quadrant of the galaxy before mankind’s evolutionary ancestors had worked out how to grow hair. And then they died, leaving behind vast edifices and abandoned artefacts. Some remnants buried layers of strata, and other adrift in incrementally decaying orbits.

Dangerous remnants at that. As if their creators, now removed from this mortal coil, remain jealous of those lives that came after their demise. Jealous of light, and life and love and laughter.

Valuable artefacts. Immeasurably priceless. And it is very much a sellers’ market. The risks, the costs and the sacrifices required to excavate a xenoarchaeological dig site are all eye-wateringly steep, but the rewards are potentially astronomical.

It is that hope that draws tens of thousands to pursue an ultimately fruitless career in xenoarchaeology. But not you. This one is the big one; this site is going to make you rich and famous. You are almost sure of it.

Plundered Stars is a game about xenoarchaeologists seeking fame and fortune, who have, inevitably, woken something ancient, alien, and murderous. Can they uncover enough associated alien artefacts to make their fortunes and reputations? Can they complete their work in the face of bureaucracy, corporate politics and rival outfits? Can they escape with their lives before something unknowable and possibly face-eating awakes…

Plundered Stars Play AreaThis narrarive game  for 1-4 players uses a deck of cards to generate crisis' and obstacles which your characters cooperate to overcome, using dice -manipulation and -placement mechanics.

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.
