Starship Tyche: The Cosmic Zookeepers

Watermarked PDF

An all new Lighthouse System edition of the space opera story game!

As humanity spreads out among the stars, it begins to discover questions about its own origins. Not only are there other intelligent species improbably similar to humans, there are hints that older, more technologically advanced beings may have had a hand in our development. Who they are, what exactly they have done, and why they have done it remain a mystery.

In Starship Tyche you and you friends take on the roles of Coalition Peacekeepers. Your mission is to investigate sightings of these “Cosmic Zookeepers”. Is humanity what it asserts itself to be? Or in the face of mounting evidence, are just starting to realize that we are something far different than we ever imagined?

This book contains everything you need to play out a complete campaign! 

  • Background on the Coalition Peacekeepers, the protagonists of the series that include the crew of the Tyche!
  • Details on the Cosmic Zookeepers, ancient aliens who have shaped mankind and act as the antagonists!
  • 12 ready-to-play characters, the main crew of the Starship Tyche!
  • All the rules necessary to play, a streamlined version of the Lighthouse System!
  • New rules on Psionic Powers for the Lighthouse System!
  • 9 all-new, original stories forming the Infinite Space campaign!

Starship Tyche: The Cosmic Zookeepers is for people who enjoy the elements of creativity and collaboration present in tabletop roleplaying, but are put off by large, expensive manuals full of complicated rules.

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.
