(Mongoose) New This Week – Elric and Traveller

By on 23 September 2010

There are three new releases from Mongoose Publishing this week, covering both fantasy and science-fiction – the new Elric of Melnibone core book for RuneQuest II along with a brand new Games Master’s Screen, and the 5th Little Black Book for Traveller, Agent!

Elric of Melnibone
Fully updated and revised for RuneQuest II, Elric of Melnibone will transport you to the Young Kingdoms, an eldritch setting providing a wealth of strange places, deadly foes and potent spells for your games. Sail the seas of fate into a demon-haunted world where dragons ride the storm-racked skies and the price of dreams is above rubies. Walk the streets of fabled Elwher, steal the lore of Pan Tang, and cross the Sighing Desert as you quest for eternal Tanelorn.

Starting the new Eternal Champion line, Elric of Melnibone takes players to the Young Kingdoms where dragons fly the skies and chaos reigns!

A copy of the RuneQuest II rulebook is required.

Elric of Melnibone GM’s Screen
With stunning Eternal Champion artwork facing the players, and every vital table for the Games Master, the Elric of Melnibone Games Master’s Screen is the perfect complement to a well run Young Kingdoms campaign.

With all the important tables and charts, including Combat Manoeuvres the new Elric of Melnibone Games Master’s Screen is constructed from quality heavy-weight cardstock that will stand the ravages of many years’ gaming.

LBB5: Agent
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 size.

From a secret government spy to a freelance espionage agent, this book expands the Agent career and provides new hooks designed to get the most from such characters. From infiltration techniques to advanced equipment, no professional Agent should be without the best aid available. Included is a brand new type of Agent, the Bounty Hunter, perfectly suited for Traveller campaigns where every credit is vital, and no questions are asked on how it is received.

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.
