Mankind once looked to the stars and wondered what, or who, might be out there. But before they could go out and seek the answers, the answers came to them. Humanity endured the onslaught of a "Dark Alliance" that savaged the very planet, forever changing its face. Others born of the stars came to the planet's rescue, but at a terrible cost. These savior races have divided the globe among their own, leaving Native Earthlings second-class citizens on their own planet. Former nations have been portioned out among an alien government known as the "Co-Operative" and broken up beyond recognition. Human cultures have faded over the decades under the rule of this or that species. The resources of Earth are no longer its own but are used to line the proverbial pockets of the newcomers. Some of these aliens spoke of Earth as a holy land promised to them, others merely as a commodity. Some saw a chance for acceptance, and still others sought to help... even if their help is not always welcome.

Now it is the 23rd Century. Generations have passed where the Earth held not one, but many sentient species. The stars remain distant and, for most, inaccessible. It is on the Earth itself where colonists must craft their future. It is on this planet where the descendents of humanity must decide what of their past they hope to salvage. Wonders and terrors await them. Finally, the age of ashes has passed, and now comes a new world of clay that the brave and determined have a chance to shape. Earth is now used or ignored in turn. It is truly a 3rd World.

Will you let it remain so?

Discover...

The rich history of Humanity, including the fate of its lost children and the war against the Dark Alliance.

The alien races of the squabbling Co-Operative. Here are the curious and brilliant F'Trana and the headstrong and passionate V'Sharl. Here are questing Drugan who require death so they might truly live, and the ruthless and material Razneeth. Learn also of the offspring of the defeated Dark Alliance, some of whom still live on Earth; be they the rapacious Murkot, the nihilistic Glastyx, or the doomed Volvant. And learn how each of these species isn't always so easy to label.

Study the numerous new dominions built on the bones of the United States and other countries of old Earth.

Perhaps you prefer the all too perfect F'Trana Utopian Projects, or wish to partake of the grand experiment of the Free Allied States? Maybe you will rebel against reptilian overlords in New Tianxia, or hope to escape from the aggro strip.

The drug that makes psychic powers possible, and how its presence on Earth is both a curse, and perhaps a salvation waiting to be utilized.

Mysteries and motives yet to be fully revealed in a world that mixes cyborgs and wastelands. A place that needs desperately heroes, but is not yet without hope.

Samples, examples, and suggestions to help you get started on your way.

3rd World is a setting for Star Hero 6th Edition, a genre book for the HERO System 6th Edition. The zip file includes both standard and printer friendly versions of the PDF.

Format
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.
