Tide World of Mani


Survival is the ability to swim in strange water." -Frank Herbert 

Tide World of Mani is a revolution sandbox adventure module for the Mothership Sci-Fi Horror RPG.

Mani is an ocean world, the only spit of land is the shoals of the Last Atoll, a settlement in the shadow of a crashed colony ship turned palace, ruled with an iron fist by the Land Barons, ancestral lords of the Atoll, the have-nots relegated to floating shanty towns.  It's a tidally locked planet where people live in an eternal sunset, the thin sliver between the dark and the light.

Recently, interstellar megacorp Sharpe Co. established contact with the Barons and scored a deal giving them full extraction rights to Mani’s rich aurora diamond seam. Their funds and resources have reinforced the Land Barons but popular dissent with their rule has only grown. 

Wave Priests cultivate a growing religious schism with the old High Priesthood that seeks to overturn the former order and usher in a zealous new faith to guide a new era on Mani. The Chromefolk roam the seas, cast out from their colony ship and forced to nomadic piracy. 

Mani is poised to blow and you're right in the middle of it. 

Hijack a hover train laden with aurora diamonds. Worship at the undersea grotto. Relax in a corporate beach compound. Rise against authority.  Crush rebellion.  Smuggle weapons. Indulge in coelacanth steak.  Break into a prison of salt. Choose a side or slink your way through the chaos. 

With some stat block surgery, Tide World of Mani is a great module for your other sci-fi RPG of choice like Stars Without Number or Traveler.

Tide World of Mani shares some setting connections my previous sandbox module, Desert Moon of Karth, in a similar format.

Nope, it's written for Mothership RPG but with some changes to the stats and mechanics referenced it could easily be adapted for your RPG of choice.

FYI, the VTT assets pack is a ZIP file without the extension. If you're not sure what to do with that file, just rename it and put ".zip" on the end and your OS will then know what to do with it.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm going to fix it to make a bit more user friendly.

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.
