The Douchey DM - Mongoose Traveller Character Generation. Even young gamers remember the original Traveller character generations system — the one where your character could die before the game even started.

The Douchey DM - Mongoose Traveller Character Generation

I personally didn’t mind the death result, it gave character generation a real push-your-luck mechanic. The new Mongoose system has softened this mechanic — the chance of pre-game death is gone, but your character can get seriously maimed. We did character generation for the Traveller game I’m planning on running, and I’m almost overwhelmed with tidbits of character back story.

Any unfamiliar terms found in the text can be looked up from the Library Data page. The Third Empire contains roughly 11000 star systems and has existed for about 1100 years. As the name suggests, it is the third incarnation of a large scale political entity in this region. The second empire collapsed into a period of barbarism and technological backwardness called The Long Night which lasted for 1500 years.

Today, the version of Traveller I played is known as Classic Traveller, but at the time it was just Traveller. While we never actually did the adventure (we detoured badly in the first episode), the start given to our group by The Traveller Adventure sustained our group for a solid two years.

The odds are, over the next few decades its New World dialects are going to gain increasing global dominance, accelerating the demise of thousands of less fortunate languages but at long last allowing a single advertisement to reach everybody in the world. Then after a century or two of US dominance some other geopolitical grouping will gain the ascendancy, everyone will learn Chechen or Patagonian or whatever it is, and history will continue as usual.

If your crew is looking for a new Engineer (the last one having been accidentally flushed out of the airlock) they can stipulate they want one with a UPP of at least 779878 and have Vacc Suit-1. Picture your character looking at his own character sheet, then watch out for flying brain-matter as your head explodes. View topic - LBB 9 ADVENTURER ! Traveller, Original D&D and What if. Hello all.

View topic - LBB 9 ADVENTURER ! Traveller, Original D&D and What if.

I've been less active on the boards partly becuase of work, and partly becuase I decided to dedicate posting time to writing time on a pet project. For years the traveller community has tossed around the possibility of using the traveller engine for a fantasy (or at least sword age tech) RPG, and some great variants have resulted - (Mercator, Wanderer, Flynn’s guide to magic, Golans modifications, Jaime's Mace ) I hesitate to mention any for fear of missing some, butI've been inspired by all of them, so thanks !

It’s a simple premise that started this attempt: that Gygax and Arneson had different inspirations than the one(s) that became D&D. From this premise (so far) has come at least two variants I really like: Mazes and Minotaurs and Xplorers ; these ask “what if the font of inspiration for original three little brown book D&D was Greek myths, or Science fiction and a different miniatures campaign was being run in those fateful years by the authors and contributiors.

Last month’s Hexographer update (and yesterday’s) included some features to make it easier to create Traveller style sub-sector maps in Hexographer.

Specifically the updates made it easy to add “feature decorations” (small icons or text) placed at different clock locations on the map. These icons or text are used to name a star system or to denote it has a naval base, repair facilities, etc. All of the steps below can be done in Hexographer’s free version. Start/Setup Initial Map (click to enlarge) Once Hexographer starts, you can set up the map to be created. Some Extra Configuration. LBB Front-Cover Rendering Machine. Design - Starflight - The Lost Colony. Many centuries ago, our forefathers departed the ancient cradle world of Earth on a mission to colonize another star system. But they never reached their destination because the ship was apparently destroyed in deep space en route.

It's loss was a mystery that would haunt the other Noah colonists for centuries to come, until finally forgotten. But Noah 3 was not destroyed; it was caught in a massive wormhole and deposited into unknown space ten thousand light years from Earth. Badly damaged and losing life support, the colonists of Noah 3 desperately searched nearby star systems for a new home, but time was short. After many days and dozens of hyperspace jumps, their damaged life support systems were running out.

Captain Meriwether orders one final hyperspace jump that takes them to the outskirts of the system. Kategorie: Traveller. 23. JTAS: Article Ratings. Freelance Traveller - Doing It My Way.

In the science fiction game Traveller, players take on the roles of wandering interstellar adventurers who are willing to take on dangerous and/or illegal jobs for pay.

The genre sources for Traveller (now known as “Classic Traveller” or “CT” for short) are as obscured as a medieval palimpsest, yet a careful sifting through the evidence reveals the hidden roots, which in turn point to the pathways of genre evolution from 1965 to 2001. First published by Game Designers’ Workshop (GDW) in 1977, CT provided the new medium of role-playing games with a science fiction setting comparable to the fantasy setting established by Dungeons & Dragons three years earlier.
