The Dark Lonesome: The Ariel Sector Sourcebook


Welcome to Ariel Sector!

Ariel Sector, located to coreward of Clement Sector, is generally regarded to be an empty wilderness by those in Clement Sector.   However, Ariel Sector has a variety of small settlements scattered throughout the sector which vary from mining colonies to pirate bases, from trading posts to scientific research stations.  

Meet the waldläufers, independent explorers who feel the call of the wild or, as they say, "The Dark Lonesome" where they go to commune with the untamed nature of the worlds of Ariel Sector and escape the constant connection to other people.  Encounter those on "The Liar's Trail" who are wanted for crimes in Clement Sector who have gone to Ariel Sector to hide from the authorities or start a new life.  Discover the settlers that have left Clement Sector to find fortune in the mineral wealth of Ariel Sector and the scientists who have found evidence of previous alien life in the sector.  Engage with the gunslingers who roam from settlement to settlement showing off how fast they are with a laser pistol.

Ariel Sector provides all the information to expand your Clement Sector game into nearby Ariel Sector with maps, random event tables, and details of what your characters may find in Ariel Sector all while leaving portions of the sector available for the Referee to imagine more possibilities.  The book includes full details of some of the most interesting sites in Ariel Sector as well as career tracks for the waldläufers and gunslingers who make the sector their home.  Here you can learn about the potential war brewing between New Perth and Minerva as well as the various legends which have sprung up about Ariel Sector, the Dark Lonesome.

Heed the call of the Dark Lonesome!

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.
