Traveller5 Game Designers' Workshop

The behemoth that is Traveller5 (759 pages long!) has arrived on DriveThruRPG/RPGNow. Although, at £22.90, it’s perhaps a bit too pricey for all but ardent Traveller fans.

The Core Rules for the fabled 5th edition of the Traveller science-fiction role-playing game. The best-selling kickstarter project from Marc Miller, replete with

Character Generation for 13 careers, plus rules for non-human aliens (we call them sophonts), clones, chimeras, androids, robots, synthetics, and more.

Core game mechanics for Tasks and Skills.

Starship rules for construction, operation, and combat.

World rules for star systems, habitable, and uninhabitable, worlds, terrain, world surface travel, and more.

Maker Systems that allow fast, easy creation of guns, armor, weapons, and even Things– mushc easier and more usable than the old Fire, Fusion, and Steel.

Trade and Commerce rules detail how (with hard work) characters can make a living travelling betweem the stars.

759 page PDF including 19-page index.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
