ARGOS III
Deep Space Port

Argos III is also known as "Midway Station" because it lies as the halfway point of the trade route between the Confederation core worlds and the distant Tohoku Colonies. Though the station is owned by a Japanese crime syndicate, a strong military presence keeps things under control. The end result is a mix between a bustling small-town community, a military base, and a lawless port where anything goes. Whatever you want, and then some, can be found here.

In addition to facilities for the military personnel and residents, Argos III has a multitude of services that cater to travelers and tradesmen passing through. In Blue Sector, the Yosoko Hotel and Autumn Moon Casino lie next to shops and street vendors of all sorts. A short ride on the transit system will take visitors to the Infinity Health Spa or the open spaces of the Green Sector park - featuring the latest in synthetic trees & shrubbery. For those seeking something a little less 'mainstream', the Warrens (where the downtrodden and dispossessed have taken up residence in an empty engineering area) can probably provide. And of course there are ample docking and cargo facilities for ships of all sorts.

This PL 7 deep space port is almost 2400 ft from top to bottom, making it the largest structure in any Future Armada supplement. The interior maps are constructed out of reusable pages which an enterprising GM can also employ to architect his or her own facilities. Even though many pages are reused to construct the station interior, this product still has four times as many unique map pages as a standard issue of Armada!

The .zip file contains the following:

  • Overview
    • 37 page PDF file detailing the station, interior locations, and key personnel.
    • Open Game License stats provided for the station and sample crew, as well as fighters and shuttle.
  • Map Book
    • Full-color 79 page PDF file.
    • Contains pages to construct interior maps of all habitable areas.
    • Includes miniature-scale maps for tactical combat.
    • Broken into pages for easy printing.
    • Pages follow a set design pattern to allow for efficient reuse.
  • Printer friendly, grayscale version of the map book.
  • Subsector Map Book
    • Full-color 27 page PDF file.
    • Provides an overview of each neighborhood.
    • Includes location key and page layout diagrams.
  • "Bonus Art" directory with rendered images of the station and auxiliary craft.

Sample documents and bonus art are available at 0-hr.com.

Please note that, unlike most issues of Future Armada, this installment does NOT contain giant composite images designed specifically for an oversized printer. The extreme file size required for an installation of this magnitude made the inclusion of such bonus maps impractical.

This space station is designed to serve as a ready-made setting for your ongoing adventures. It can be just a stop along the way, a final destination, or a base of operations. While OGL statistics are provided for wide compatibility, they kept are separate for quick modification or replacement. No matter which side of the law you end up on, you can find a haven in Argos III!

The maps provided and the background info for these maps and of the station are awesome. I haven't looked too deeply into it yet, but did skim through them on my iPad. Going to be using this for my Star Wars game and these maps will be very useful for [...]

Whilst this has been built for a specific background, I bought it hoping I could use it for my Hyperlite campaigns, needing deckplans for deep-space stations or orbital corporate headquarters. It was a shot in the dark, a hope, but one informed by a like [...]

I bought this product a few hours before a new Starblazer campaign kicked off. The characters were due to limp in (faulty FTL drive) into a spaceport, where all sorts of trouble would land upon them. A bit late I realized that I could use a detailed space [...]

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.
