The Black Star Companion provides additional rules and information to help you tweak your Black Star games. This book is split into nine parts, as follows:

1. Vast is the introduction.

3. New Talents includes a collection of new Archetype Talents, Gear Talents, and Inherent Talents.

4. New Archetypes offers two new Archetypes: the Fringer, a Discipline-based Archetype with no supernatural abilities, and the Psychic, a less spiritual alternative to the Mystic.

5. Optional Rules presents a number of optional rules that can be used to tweak the game to better suit your table, including rules to make the game more challenging and combat more dangerous, for those who want to turn space opera into hard sci-fi.

6. Advanced Vehicles offers a few additional vehicle rules and provides stats for a variety of new starships and vehicles.

7. Capital Ships provides rules and guidelines for dealing with these massive vessels in your games.

8. Expanded Galaxy includes various resources GMs can use when prepping or running their games. This includes rules for aliens, a rogues' gallery of foes, rules for handling wealth and commerce, and even a random world generator.

9. Clarifications answers a few common questions.

Black Star is a rules light sci-fi roleplaying game you can carry around in your pocket. Using the latest version of the Furious Games Engine first used in Magnum Fury and refined in Six-Gun Fury, Black Star is designed for fast play and high-flying action, perfect for classic space opera and heroic science fantasy.

Yes, although I can't promise when it will come out. Last one took ... a bit of work ... to finalize. ;)

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.
