Fading Suns 4 - Fakers & Freebooters

Suggested Price €3,52

Space piracy — a plague on interstellar society! A scourge nearly impossible to eradicate!

The line between pirates, privateers, opportunistic adventurers, and space captains confiscating resources for themselves is blurry. Common to them all, however, is their preying upon freight, infrastructure, and commerce, and their willful looting of space depots, scientific installations, and astro-settlements.

Some space pirates rely on stealth to hit-and-run, others on strength to discourage resistance and retaliation, and yet others on greasing corrupt palms. The most successful, however, employ all these strategies and more.

Fakers & Freebooters is a 24-page bonus drama, in which the troupe finds itself on the world of Hargard, investigating the murder of Bishop Benedict in the backwater bishopric of Ruthwyck.

Please note that the drama Fakers & Freebooters will also be included in the forthcoming title Hard Times on Hargard that was recently funded in the Fading Suns: New Frontiers crowdfunding campaign.

Original electronic
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.
