Traveller Book Writer Call

By on 11 March 2014
Mongoose Publishing

Mongoose Publishing is currently looking for established writers to work on books for our Traveller RPG. Traveller remains one of the most popular science-fiction roleplaying games on the market and its huge scope guarantees projects of interest to the right person.

They are currently looking for writers for these specific projects, though they are always happy to hear other ideas.

  • 2300AD Adventures
  • Wild West setting book and supplements
  • Steampunk setting book and supplements
  • Pirates (how they act, how they gather – part career book, part supplement)
  • Third Imperium Sectors/Alien Modules (not that canon has to be adhered to, and your text will be picked apart!)
  • Adventures/Mini-Campaigns (in the style of Beltstrike, Prison Planet and Trillion Credit Squadron)
  • Judge Dredd Adventures and Sourcebooks

If you are an established writer with past gaming credits to your name, send a one page outline of a project you wish to work on, highlighting proposed chapters and why you think the book will be so cool, to

Mongoose Publishing compensates writers of Traveller books by immediate sharing of revenue (35%) on sales of all electronic books. Given the popularity of Traveller, this can be quite lucrative for the right author and book.

If you are not an established writer, they are currently looking for several Traveller articles, which can be found here.

Some of the writers of past articles are now working on full titles for Traveller, so it is a good place to start!

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
