During last week’s New Year, New Game series of Picks, I featured bundles for Star Trek Adventures and Esper Genesis, two starfaring RPGs of sci-fi adventuring. With China’s moon landing and SpaceX and other companies going all-in to get us off this planet, it feels like a great time to celebrate To the Stars Week.
So let’s look at the great-grandaddy of all beyond-the-stars RPGs, Traveller, and this latest supplement for the current edition, Traveller Companion. For GMs and players alike, it’s a modular set of expansions and alternatives to customize your science fiction experience.
The Traveller Companion is here…
This book is the ultimate toolkit for Traveller campaigns, allowing referees and Travellers to pick and choose the best additions for their adventures and explore the galaxy in greater detail than before. From alternate Traveller creation systems and training to gas giant operations and starports, from the effects of gravity and diseases to animal encounters on alien worlds and the use of transponders, there is a wealth of new rules-based material for all Traveller campaigns, ready to be unleashed on every new world, every starship, and every group of Travellers.
