Mothership 1E Edition

There is a planet that no ship escapes. A place where death calls like a beacon amongst the waves of the living. This is the DEAD PLANET.

Dead Planet is the first module for the MOTHERSHIP Sci-Fi horror roleplaying game by Tuesday Knight Games. It's packed to the brim wtih usable, gameable content for any sci-fi rpg, including:

  • A one-page adventure on a derelict ship, called THE SCREAMING ON THE ALEXIS.
  • A planetcrawl of the dead planet with several locations, including the five-level underground bunker THE RED TOWER
  • An exploration of a ritual cannabilistic society traped on the Dead Planet's moon in MOON COLONY BLOODBATH
  • A generator for making your own derelict ships at the table
  • Several incredible tables ripe for stealing, including: d100 nightmares, d100 colonists, an eerie sculpture generator, and a hyperdrive malfunction table
  • And much, much more!

This adventure is suitable for characters of any level in a survival horror setting and is sure to pose a challenge to even the most battle hardened party. You can even find the core rules for Mothership here for Pay What You Want.

The fact that this update to the 1st edition rules is being sold as a seperate title, rather than just being an update to the 0e verions of the product has made me question whether or not I want to support Tuesday Knight Games...and for now the answer is a resounding "NO!" I urge everyone not to support such predatory sales practices until such time as Tuesday Knight Games is forced to rethink this abominably bad decision and provide a free update to this product for all those who purchased the 0e version.

I agree. I was going to buy some extra material but this really turns me off.

I think people supporting the publisher's move have the wrong take. 0ed was like an early access computer game, when you pay for it you don't expect to have to buy it again when they finish it. This is absolutely not the same as going from a 1rst edition to a second, where the old game is still available to buy in 99% of the cases.

It doesn't look to be for sale anymore. Concerned, I checked my DriveThruRPG Library, but I am still able to download it from there at the time of this comment.

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.
