The PDF at starfrontiers.com doesn't seem to have the reference sheets that came in the center of the Alpha Dawn Expanded Game Rules. Is there a PDF of these sheets anywhere? I'm not interested in the "remastered" version.

Why not? They're the same information.

At any rate, I went back and checked the PDF vs my hardcopy.

The pages are there.  You may be thrown off because the page number on the page image is 2-3 pages behind the pagecount at the top of the PDF viewer.  The PDF viewer counts the pages starting with the cover as page 1.  So to get to the Equipment List on page 40 of the physical book.  you'll want pp 42 or 43 of the PDF.

I'm not looking for the Equipment Lists pages; I'm looking for the pull-out reference pages. They came between pages 30 and 31 and were not numbered themselves. They include most of the tables found in the rules.

Why not? They're the same information.

Because the graphics and heavy purple styling make them difficult to read. This is true of the entire "remastered" set. Although I appreciate the "remastered" effort, the creator obviously has no concept of good typography.

Fair ennough.  I didn't realiza my hardcopy was incomplete.

Have you tried the GM's Screen (next scan to the right of the Expanded Rule Book)?  It has all the same information.

That's better, though it's not the greatest scan. Oh well.

Glad I could help.  I'll cop to the layout/design of parts of the remastered project being a bit off.  I think those borders are too busy, esp in that bright color.  They don't look as bad when printed out in  B/W though.

I've got my 32 year old copies of those reference sheets sitting right behind me.  I'll scan them in and post in the Port Loren Library once they are done.

Actually now that I think about it, those ones are pretty beat up.  I'll can from my pristine copy of the rules.  Back in a bit.

Get your copy here:

Not a perfect scan but I was a little rushed as I had to get to my son's ball game.  I'll try to get a better copy when I get back next week from my conference trip.
