Interstellar Patrol for Fate Accelerated Edition presents a campaign frame for optimistic space fiction like the original Star Trek television series. It includes random tables for generating worlds and plots for GMs who are short of time or inspiration.

Now, Interstellar Patrol Adventure Cards expands on those tables with three decks of cards that let you quickly create an entire episode of your own space adventures. Start by drawing a random plot card and picking one of the two adventure hooks. Then choose an adventure fractal card that suits the plot you drew, or draw one randomly to put an unexpected twist on the story. Finally, choose or draw a world card (or set your adventure in Space) to establish the environment.

Plots and worlds give aspects for your adventure, while worlds and fractals provide an array of skill bonuses that determine what kinds of challenges will be most important to the evening's story. The cards are designed to fit together to keep all this information right at your fingertips.

With Interstellar Patrol Adventure Cards you can have an entire night of space adventure ready to go in minutes. Draw your cards, jot down an NPC or two, and you're off. Go forth, explorers, and be bold!

Contents: 27 plot cards, 24 adventure fractal cards, 28 world cards, 1 rules card.

Your instruction card says that the plot card has two different possible plots, but looking through it, it seems like they are the same plot at the top and bottom.

So sorry. That was an error in the original file that I fixed and updated in the print version, but apparently missed updating in the Print-and-Play PDF. I've uploaded the corrected file, and you should be able to download it from your Library. Sorry for the inconvenience.

So if you bought the printed cards, you're just SOL?

No, the printed cards were corrected before the product ever went on sale. The Print-And-Play PDF was not updated at the same time. The corrected P&P PDF is now available.

What is an "adventure fractal"?

Basically, it stats the adventure with Fate skills, which you can use to determine oppositions and make rolls for elements of the adventure that don't have full stat blocks. Based on Ryan Dank's idea here:

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.
