By on 10 May 2010

Two new books from Mongoose will now be appearing on the shelves of your local games stores – the long-awaited Cursed Earth for Judge Dredd and the first in a new line for Traveller, the Little Black Book version of Mercenary!

LBB 1: Mercenary
The Little Black Books return! Harking back to the original release of Traveller in the 70’s, the Little Black Books from Mongoose bring the latest version of Traveller to your gaming table in a handy and collectible pocket size.

Mercenary is a detailed expansion for the Traveller game, and the first in the line of Core Supplements. With advanced options for Soldier and Marine characters, any player with an interest in infantry combat will find something of value in this manual. With new weapons and tactics, career options, and the lucrative mercenary ticket system, Mercenary puts ground combat front and centre.

The Cursed Earth
If you thought the streets of Mega-City One were bad, wait until you take a walk outside the city…

The Cursed Earth is a blasted, irradiated wasteland filled with mutants, desperadoes and renegades eking out an existence in the most hellish place on the planet. Stretching across the old continental United States, the Cursed Earth separates the three great Mega-Cities of America, and it is a foolish citizen who makes any journey across its wastes. Still, judges often have cause to venture out into danger, to pursue renegade perps, stall mutant invasions or even just to introduce rookies to the Cursed Earth in order to fulfil their training requirements in the legendary Hotdog Run. This is a complete guide to the Cursed Earth, depicting the inhabitants, hazards and other dangers that beset all travellers across the wasteland.

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.
