Globetrotters’ Guide to the Old World

By on 5 February 2013

European colonialism stretches back to the days of the Roman Republic, though its modern history begins with the voyages of the great 15th century Portuguese and Spanish navigators. Today, many of the European powers have colonies across the globe. Some, like France, Germany, and Great Britain, are on the ascent, while the superpowers of old, Portugal and Spain, are waning. Aside from occasional clashes with the Ottoman Empire, which still holds parts of southeastern Europe in its ailing grip, the continent appears to be at peace. Beneath the surface of political calm, though, the twin currents of colonial ambition and avarice are swirling and gaining strength. It may not be known to the common man, but those in positions of power sense war is coming.

This supplement contains two new Leagues, information and adventure seeds on countries the length and breadth of Europe, three sample characters, and eight sample henchmen.

This product is compatible with the Hollow Earth Expedition RPG.

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 and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
