Warped Beyond Recognition

"This is THE Mothership project I've been waiting for since we first came out with Mothership. One of my all time favorite adventures. I cannot recommend this highly enough!"
—Sean McCoy, creator of Mothership

Warped Beyond Recognition is the first Mothership module from Quadra, creator of the TRAAASH RPG blog, featuring the Mothership community's favorite house rules and various tools for Wardens to streamline and spice up their games.

In Warped, you'll explore a research vessel in deep space, uncover the site of a terrible series of experiments, and discover their ultimate purpose — if the test subjects don't get to you first!

This module comes with a lot of stuff, thanks to the generous backers of the Kickstarter campaign that got this off the ground:

  • 32 page hyperlinked PDFfeaturing:
    • A fleshed-out spaceship setting for players to explore/get torn apart on!
    • Six psychic Test Subjects as fully-realized antagonists...or victims?
    • A creative and open-ended psionics system that players can discover and use -- at their own peril.
    • Numerous plot hooks and consequences that make this module a perfect way to kick off a Mothership campaign, use as a one-shot, or drop into an existing campaign!
  • A full soundtrack by Galen Drew with ambient tracks for each floor of the spaceship that makes up the setting of the module, plus signature tracks for each of the test subjects the players will encounter.
  • A desktop mixer app (Win/Mac) that Wardens can use to easily live-mix the module's soundtrack by dragging a puck representing the players' position on a set of maps. It also contains a bunch of extra materials and background information about the world of the module, tables for your Mothership games, and a few secrets...
Design, art, writing, and layout by Quadra. Editing by Fiona Maeve Geist (MRC).

I am inspired and awed by Warped Beyond Recognition's tremendous good-idea density, ingenious approach to NPCs-as-puzzles and elegant information design.
— Ian Yusem, creator of HULL BREACH and Picket Line Tango

Is there any way to get files of the map to run for online games?

Hi Larry, thanks for asking! I've added additional files containing separated art for the characters and maps, plus a text file containing the ASCII map.

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.
