Mega Minis have released a free version of the Salvage Crew: Star Mogul rules (PDF link).
From their announcement:
You are the owner or star mogul of a newly formed salvage crew. Fifty years ago a pathogen annihilated most of the colonies of the outer rim. Those whom are brave enough to stake their salvage claims to this lost or abandoned property could make a fortune. All you have to do is grab the salvage and stave off other salvage crews with force if necessary.
This game includes 56 pages of basic rules and 29 pages of other material including the following.
- 25mm and 15mm ranges in inches for firing and movement.
- 2D paper miniatures of a basic starter Salvage Crew (Team Yellow and Team Blue).
- 2D drop zone and debris salvage templates.
- 3D wooden crates for use as scenery
- Six sided die results
- Starter Salvage Crew Rosters and examples of how they are created.
- Background material on the universe, weapons, and equipment.
We will begin introducing more free rules, examples of game mechanics, encounters, and general mayhem starting in May of 2011.
