From before the beginnings of history, mankind had spun tales and wondered about that bright point of light named for the Roman goddess of love: Venus, the enigmatic, ever-shifting star of evening and of morning. Yet more recently, scholars speculated what might be hiding beneath the swirling clouds of Venus. Then, the first pioneers started their journey into the ether, and found the Morning Star to be a deadly Garden of Eden. The first expeditions entered a world resembling an Earth 150 million years past. Steaming jungles, treacherous swamps, and stormy oceans cover its surface. Giant dinosaurs dominate the planet, and in the midst of these primeval beasts, strange and alien Lizard-man peoples fight for survival. Despite its hostile nature, thousands of human colonists have already been lured to Venus, searching for resources, treasures, new territories and more …

With this source book you and your fellow players can now plunge into the "green hell" of the Morning Star! Try your luck as a soldier-of-fortune in the pioneer settlements and the wilderness of Venus. Or perhaps as a scientist, exploring the wonders of a new world. As a colonist you can create a new home far away from Mother Earth. As a secret agent you might want to intervene in the dangerous and bloody game of the great powers. Or you can choose to play a Venusian warrior defending his homeland against the cold, emotionless invaders from beyond space. It’s up to you!

This source book tells you everything you need to know about the settlements of the four nations represented on Venus - Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and Russia – as well as some minor powers and stakeholders: only here can you glean what they have established so far, what they are up to in the future, and which dark crimes they are trying to cover up. You'll also learn about everyday life in the colonies and settlements, the exploitation of natural resources, and the conflicts that arise among the colonists.

Also included is an extensive chapter on the "Ha", as the Venusians call themselves. This source book provides all the information needed concerning the culture, the biology, and the young civilization of the alien Lizard-men that allows you to portray a Venusian authentically during play. Of course, you will also find extensive material on the unique flora and fauna of the Morning Star – not only new monsters to trouble your player characters, but also the innumerable exotic biological treasures flourishing on Venus.

Furthermore you will find new equipment, sample characters and tips and advice on how to play adventures on Venus, as well as a detailed "chemistry set" with exciting new rules for inventions. These will allow your player characters to exploit the natural resources of Venus and develop new drugs, chemicals, and all kinds of bizarre and wondrous substances.

Last but not least, we will also unveil many a secret that still lies hidden beneath the misty shrouds of the Green Planet.

The deadly swamps of the Morning Star await you!

No, but they will be published regularly and be available via our international distribution partners/normal retailers. :-)

I expect the books to be released in print version around early fall. Keep an eye on www.clockwork-publishing.com around that time or follow us on facebook (Clockwork Publishing) if you don't want to miss the exact date.

Format

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.
