The chief tenet of the Astrnomischen-Rechen Institut is the pursuit of interstellar exploration for the betterment of humanity. A rich and coveted pocket of stars lies a mere 350 light-years away. The time has come to unlock its secrets.

Resting comfortably in the constellation of Tauras in Earth's familiar night sky, the Pleiades have long been an object of awe, worship, and inspiration for different human cultures. To ancient civilizations which placed tremendous importance on the heavily bodies, the unique character of the Pleiades was as compelling as it was puzzling.

To the modern men of the 24th century, however, the Pleiades are very nearly as great prize - a storehouse of young stars just waiting to be tapped for information. The Astrnomischen-Rechen Institut, a foundation pledged to extend the boundaries of human explration and human knowledge, recognizes this potential and has for years been in preparation for the long voyage to this fabled cache of stars.

The vehicle for that mission has been carefully designed and purposefully crewed for the tenuous journey across uncharted stars. The ship is called Bayern.

After Bayern's aborted launch attempt in 2297, the Astrnomischen-Rechen Institut completed repair and redesign on its vital stutterwarp drive system, and the ship was then ready to set off again for the haunting star group. Now as the 24th century dawns on the human race, Commander Leopold Schmidt and his international crew of 110 brave explorers make ready to bid farewell to their friends and families for a journey that will last almost half a decade.

The module Bayern contains all of the background data needed to run an ongoing campaign of adventures based around the monumental voyage of this great craft. The important crewmembers are all detailed, as are the ship's systems, including the computers and the extra vehicular craft used on the Bayern during the mission.

Also included in Bayern are two complete adventure scenarios, Death Throes and The Daughters of Atlas. Each scenario is designed to begin or supplement a continuing campaign covering the unique encounters and adventures that can be found along the long flight of the Bayern.

An OK adventure. Basically this reminds me of the movie 2001 Space Oddysey. Not much combat but a lot of exploration and discovery. The galactic alien being at the end reminded me of 2001. [...]

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.
