Captain Henault of the lead mining vessel

Princessfloated up from his seat and grabbed a zipline handle. He moved through the dark, greasy hold of the ship and down towards an open bay. He dropped through the double doors and drifted to the floor with practiced ease.

Henault landed at the feet of an almost alien-looking device. It was oblong and the size of a small transport vehicle. There was little on the outside to define it, aside from a sensor and communications array. In front of what was obviously a circular hatch, a greasy-haired and skinny mechanic was waiting. A green light on the side of the hatch pulsed as the hatch spiraled open: a young woman emerged from it like an uneasy insect from its chrysalis. She was tired and a pale shade of queasy green. Henault smiled and extended his hand.

"Welcome to the Princess," he offered kindly.

"I'm..." the young woman began, then stopped as her stomach turned.

Henault smiled again. "Welcome to Caprice, Lieutenant. We're having a small problem with some cockroaches called the NEC. We heard you Terranovans kicked their butts once, and we're hoping you might be able to help us."

Caprice: the planet known as the Gateworld, and Earth's first daughter. One of the main human colonies, this harsh planet harbors a dynamic society that not only survived the turmoil of the post-colonial period but managed to thrive on its own. As the forces of the imperialist New Earth Commonwealth prepare their take-over of the human worlds, however, Caprice finds itself an occupied world, stuck between hammer and anvil. But the Capricians have always been a resourceful people . . .

The Life on Caprice sourcebook is a game resource for Dream Pod 9's exciting Heavy Gear science-fiction game. Within these covers you will find:

  • A complete history of the Caprician world;
  • An extensive examination of Caprice's characteristics, from its geology and hydrography to each region's resources;
  • A listing of all settlements, with location, population, political system and special characteristics described in depth;
  • Dozens of important personalities for the players to meet and interact with;
  • An in-depth examination of the cultures, habits and lifestyles found throughout Caprician societies;
  • New equipment, campaign seeds and archetypes.

Format
Scanned image
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.
