Five Parsecs From Home - Expansion 1 - Trailblazers Toolkit


You are knee-deep in radioactive dust on some colony-world nobody has ever heard of, there are Precursor marines sniping at you whenever you stick your head up and the nano-comms are completely scrambled.

The Trailblazer’s Toolkit is here to help you out!

The first expansion for the RPG-Lite adventure wargame Five Parsecs From Home 3rd edition gives you 58 pages packed full of new options to customize your game and the way you play.

New players get an introductory 4 turn campaign perfect for getting a soft start on the game or introducing a friend.

For those wanting to see more narrative content, random tables will generate the names of starships, planets, colonies and corporate patrons.

If you have a crew who are looking for a new challenge, we’ve introduced two different systems for progressively increasing the difficulty of the campaign as you play. You’ll also find an extensive set of difficulty toggles, allowing you to tailor the game to your liking. This includes things like time limits, tougher enemies or more challenging economics.

Some of you are hoping to get some versus action going, so a unique scenario and set-up sequence for player vs player battles will allow you to face off against a friend's crew in a no-holds-barred fight. And if you’d rather work together, why not let your two crews join up and take on a coalition of foes in an expanded co-op scenario?

We’ve dialled up the adversaries, AI variations add unpredictability and a wider array of possible actions to each type of enemy AI in combat whilst deployment variables allow the enemy to set up in a variety of ways, based on their AI. Some foes are more likely to dig in or hold out for reinforcements, while others may launch a surprise attack from among your positions.

Escalating battles allows fights to grow in intensity as they progress with enemies fighting more furiously or revealing unexpected ploys as you try to complete your miss

On purchase you get will an immediate PDF download. 

This is the first expansion for the RPG-lite  Five Parsecs From Home solo adventure wargame. Assemble a ragtag crew of galactic trailblazers and head out to explore the stars, pick up jobs, and every now and then —  engage in some action-packed, sci-fi combat!

Any chance getting pages 40, 44 & 41 centered, they run off the page now. 40 is too far left so you cant see the full page number and 41 is too far right so the top right is cut off, 44 top left is cut off.

Maybe its just me, but it seems a little contrary-to-intent to put the supplement to a game on the "New Year, New Game" sale but not the game itself.

Hello, after downloading this today, the header and page numbers are shifted off the edge on some of the pages. I noticed this on pages 40, 41, and 44.

the plan is to release several small expansions like this then do a print edition with additional content for retail (pdf purchasers will get a discount on the print edition)

Just to clarify - the plan is to have multiple expansions in one physical copy for retail?

Correct it will make it more cost effective for the community

Chris, when you say "pdf purchasers will get a discount on the print edition" will we get a discount for each of the pdf expansions we buy? or is it just a flat rate discount for buying 1 or more?

I would much prefer to have my original preorder of the physical copy of the game. I am happy that the first expansion is out, but wonder why the physical copy isn't in my hands yet?

If it's a copy from US retail, all international shipping by boat is incredibly slow these days. Unfortunately that has dramatically delayed things. If you are waiting for a copy bought direct from Modiphius, hit them up by email. Those should all have arrived by now I think.

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.
