Alien Planets

This product is basically a stock art book featuring ten alien (from an Earthling’s point of view) planets. Each planet has been given a name and a brief description, though of course you need not fee bound to these. The pictures are attractive, but the author seems to have emphasized an exotic feel rather than realism or verisimilitude as far as habitable planets go. Also, you’d think that proofreading a product with so little text would be easy, but even the “front cover” exhibits very odd if not outright erroneous capitalization, and the abbreviation “RPG” becomes “PRG” after the front cover. The low price is a point in the product’s favor, though.

A better bargain when compared with my review against the Art of War products for Living and Barren planets, due to cost and resolution of images provided. Nice full page high resolution images for each planet. As I mentioned in opposing reviews, a crunchy 15MB collection of imagery for ready use in a SF setting. The planetary readouts are enough to set you to thinking, they could be mixed and matched but generally follow the obvious planetary characteristics. My key issues are that the copyright for use is not defined; can I post these on my webpage for my campaign and how do I attribute? I dunno! Also, graphically speaking, the planets themselves are a little more colourful than I would expect, so are in my opinion more geared toward a space opera as opposed to a hard-SF campaign, either that or keep them in reserve as really exotic planets. It is also very evident that they are computer or fractal generated, they could be softened up a bit (unsharp masking), have an atmospheric shell added or can possibly be remapped through colour palettes. Nothing that can be fixed with a little GIMP or Photoshop work.
