By on 24 August 2009

Two new Traveller books will be arriving in your local stores this week – the Golden Age Starships Compilation and the first adventure set specifically in the Third Imperium, Tripwire.

Golden Age Starships Compilation
Compiling the Golden Age Starships, this book features new ships for Traveller, including deck plans, crews, variants and scenario ideas for each. All ships can be found in the official Spinward Marches setting, and the Compilation features the Fast Courier, Corsair, LSP Modular Starship, Sword Worlds Patrol Cruiser, and a collection of archaic small craft and stations for worlds who are just finding their way into space.

Tripwire
In an effort to increase their control over Jewell subsector, the Imperium has announced that a new duke will be appointed to oversee Imperial interests there. This move has caused political friction with the Zhodani who have since restricted trade to their worlds. Imperial agents’ suspect the Zhodani are now planning to deploy a new super weapon, forcing the Imperium to strengthen their borders and military outposts. With tensions running high only the bravest travellers remain in business, demanding higher fees for their services. Making the most of the current trade opportunities, the players take on a passenger who pays them a handsome fee for their services. However, the passenger is more than he appears to be and the players are soon plunged into a world of conspiracy and danger.

Tripwire is set in the Jewell subsector of Spinward Marches. The story takes the players to every system in Jewell where an adventure awaits them at every turn. This book is more than just a campaign; it serves as a useful guide to the Jewell subsector, detailing each world with a brief history, local laws and places of interest. Tripwire also includes a timeline of Jewell subsector, random encounters, new equipment and spacecraft.

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.
