Battlefield Press, Inc presents a science fiction campaign setting for Savage Worlds set in Stewart Cowley's Terran Trade Authority. This first book, The Proxima War written by Jonathan M. Thompson and Jeffery Lily, gives details from Earth's first contact to the aftermath of the war. Details will be presented on the military advances, the descriptions of the aliens and all the ships from the book Spacecraft 2000 to 2100 AD. 

This setting book gives you:

  • Background on the major races
  • Details on how to build each of the major races as characters - Aphans, Proximans and Terrans
  • Savage Worlds stat blocks on the ships in Spacecraft 2000-2100
  • Detailed timeline of events

About Terran Trade Authority:

The Terran Trade Authority is a science-fiction setting originally presented in a collection of four large illustrated science fiction books published between 1978 and 1980. This series was written by Stewart Cowley.

The books formed a connected space-opera milieu, describing the future history of mankind's expansion into the galaxy, presented in the guise of official handbooks by the trade organization from which the setting takes its name. However, the books sometimes contained contradictory information (e.g., the nature of early FTL technology).

Compared to other science fiction settings, the TTA setting appears optimistic about man's place in the universe, though elements of violence and authoritarianism do appear in the books. It features a strong undercurrent of wonder and adventure, due in part to the inclusion of various mysterious alien relics and incidents that are left unexplained by the author.

We will make sure that is fixed when we upload the final version. Thank you for point it out. Sorry it took so long to reply, we have been trying to get the final book together.

wow! This looks like fun. I loved the first book (I had no idea there were others until I was on Amazon maybe a year ago) when I first saw it too many years ago.

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.
