Mothership: Piece by Piece

Watermarked PDF
The Daedalus Robotics Lab is in lockdown after personnel were fatally compromised in a random incident. Reports are linking the events to a work tool found at the scene, now classified as Artifact 21. 

Daedalus Robotic Lab’s parent company, Jensen-Hung, is excited to offer an attractive opportunity to any self-motivated freelancers in the sector! Taking on the important role of Temporary Maintenance Crew, contractees are tasked with retrieving Artifact 21 for analysis. Caution is advised; discretion is enforced. 
Piece by Piece is the fifth Mothership pamphlet module and includes:
  • A fully playable, ready-to-run one shot to drop in to any sci-fi RPG campaign

  • A Murder mystery in a robotics laboratory.

  • An easy to read map and key.

  • Five NPCs to interact with as well as a strange new artifact to collect (or fear). 

This adventure is suitable for characters of any level in a survival horror setting and is sure to pose a challenge to even the most battle hardened party.

Written by D G Chapman (The Haunting of Ypsilon-14, Hideo’s World) with layout by Sean McCoy and editing by Jarrett Crader.

i bought this from the TKG website so it's not letting me add this as a review, but, i played through this last night and had a great time. a player said it was his favorite RPG experience to date, which i thought was pretty high praise, and he asked me to NUKE my current mothership campaign and make a new campaign based around this pamphlet adventure and retrieving artifacts.

Ypsilon-14 is great and it's the same writer. It will be worth it.

Any way we can get a preview of the actual writing and artistic quality of the adventure before purchase?

It is a trifold.

Given the way DTRPG's systems work, they cannot give a preview without showing half the content of the adventure.

On top of that, because it is a trifold, presenting one side of the document will only give a weird and disjointed view of the content.

Everyone involved does good work, with a great tract record on Mothership material. It is worth a punt, especially at less than $2s.

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.
