Traveller


Traveller. It's one of the giants of the RPG world.
Also, you can die in character creation.
But that aside, there's a new edition in the works, and it's up on Kickstarter now in order to be funded (spoilers: it has, several times over).

Finishing up our tour through RPG Zines, we have Xboat, a new Traveller 5th Edition RPG zine that, like the others, is up on Kickstarter now. Obviously, this one will take you out into the reaches of space as part of the Traveller game.

In deep space, many conflicts will be between opposing troops on their ships. Much like the ancient Greeks fought out in the Mediterranean, so will it be as boarding parties rush over to the other vessel, dealing death in the confines and tight quarters of the enemy ship. That's what you'll be doing in Vanguard, a new sci-fi miniatures skirmish game that takes place within the Traveller universe. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Modiphius has a trio of new Mindjammer releases over in their webshop. The first is Mindjammer for Traveller. That's bringing two great sci-fi minis game systems together into one. The next is The Far Havens, which is an adventure pack that can get your game up and running in all sorts of interesting places. Finally, there's The Worm Within, a new novel based in the Mindjammer universe. All are available now.

You know, if you're going to be travelling around in Traveller, you could travell with just your feet or you could use a vehicle so your travelling is more... travell... able...
Anyway, if you do want to get into a spiffy new vehicle, you shouldn't look much further than the Vehicle Handbook, which is now available to pre-order.

You've possibly seen that Modiphius is bringing the world of Mindjammer to the Traveller RPG system. You've maybe been curious about how, exactly, that all works. Well, the folks over at Modiphius are here to help. They've created the Dominion quickstart rules set. It gives you a primer to the system as well as a quick adventure to get your feet wet. PDF versions of it are free.

Sometimes you like a particular setting for a game, but your other players like a particular rules set. Often, that can create tension as you want to play one thing while other want to play something else. Well, that's where settings getting cross-over books to different systems help. In this case, Modiphius brings you Mindjammer in the Traveller rules set.

Traveller is an RPG that's been around for... heck... seemingly forever. Millions of players have taken Marc Miller's game and used it to play out all sorts of interplanetary adventures. However, RPGs aren't always for everyone. Sometimes you'd want something a bit quicker-playing. Well, Traveller is being turned into a card game. It's up on Kickstarter now.

Many of us love Star Wars and Star Trek. But all of us know that the actions depicted on-screen don't really depict what space combat would be like. And the minis games based on those series really leave out a lot of the intricacies of the combat, such as momentum and elevation. Well, sometimes you want that more intricate, complex set of rules for your games. That's where Squadron Strike: Traveller comes in. It's up on Kickstarter now.

For those that have been around the gaming block a time or two, Traveller needs no introduction.

Steve Jackson Games has been making GURPS sourcebooks for the Traveller system since 1998. That will be coming to an end on December 31st of this year. This means that SJG will no longer be making or selling those products. If you're a fan of the GURPS Traveller books, but you've not gotten all the books you wanted yet, you've got 5 months to pick the last ones up if you want to get them right from Steve Jackson.

Hey everyone. Here's another batch of news snippets for you.
Remember, snippets aren't "leftovers" or "scraps" or anything like that. They're news like everything else. They're just... smaller. There's good stuff in here and we want you to know about it. It's just that the story's shorter, but no less important!

So what do we have in this round? Well, there's a new punk green from Slow Death Games, an announcement from ThunderChild Miniatures about a new Kickstarter, a new release from Hitech Miniatures, a new adventure for Fantasy8s, new Pulp Alley templates from Sally 4th, a notice about the final days of the Rise of the Kage pre-order, some new goblin nurses from Kromlech, a Squadron Strike: Traveller Preview, an announcement about the Death Saves Anthology release, and some new accessories for Robotech from Burn In Designs.
