Daring Tales of the Space Lanes Compendium One
Strap in and prepare for lift off, with the first adventure compendium of Daring Tales of the Space Lanes!
Triple Ace Games presents five epic space adventures where fighting evil crimelords, dodging bounty hunters, and evading asteroids while blasting at enemy fighters is all part of a day’s work.
Waylaid on Wayland: When a senior political figure offered the heroes a tidy sum to deliver a small package it seemed like easy money, but that was before people started trying to kill them. What begins as a simple cargo run quickly has the heroes involved in a running battle over who gets to control a powerful political organization on the industrial world of Wayland. Trash incinerators, acid rain, high speed chases through chimney stacks, and a showdown where the scenery is just as dangerous as the opposition await!
Gunboat Diplomacy: Sure, helping a guy being blasted at by an armored goon was the right thing to do, but it’s embroiled the characters in the start of a potentially nasty situation. When an entire space navy is trying to kill you, you know it’s not a good day to take to the stars! Space Dangers: A special appendix detailing numerous space hazards you can throw into your own space tales. From asteroids to gravity wells to wormholes, that cargo run just got a whole lot more dangerous.
Bad Debts: Life in the spacelanes is hard, and spacers have to go where the money is. In this case, that means tracking down the kidnapped daughter of a senior member of the powerful Galactic Trade Assembly. From the explosive energy crystal world of Kerexi IV to the gas processing spacestation known as Dante and onward to a secret starship controlled by a powerful criminal fraternity, the heroes are plagued by vicious bounty hunters led by the ruthless and cunning Pandit Morg, an alien psion armed with a very deadly weapon!
Robot Rumble: When your trip to Lux III hits “difficulties” your patron suggests a way you can repay him and avoid his lawyers. It’s a simple enough task, on the surface; all you have to do is infiltrate a criminal gang, discover who their boss is, and put him out of business. But there’s a drawback, and it’s a big one. The gang operates in Tin Town,a robots-only slum, and fleshies just aren’t welcome there. But fear not, for your patron has a solution; you’re going to enter Tin Town disguised as robots!
The Last Journey of the Exodus: A man condemned to a terrible fate for his crimes possesses a long forgotten secret: to repay the heroes for an act of kindness, he reveals to them the location of the Exodus, one of the legendary “Lost Ships” with which the Human race began the colonization of the universe thousands of years ago. But strange things, a ruthless madman, and a race against time await the heroes within the hull of the ancient ship.
