Traveller Open Day – 5 September

By on 7 August 2009

On Saturday September 5th, Mongoose is throwing open its doors for fans of Traveller. Taking place at their offices in Swindon, it is completely free to attend, and everyone is welcome, whether you have played Traveller before or not!

Doors open at 9:30, and games begin at 10am, finishing at 5pm – and we have some special games lined up for you!

  • Rumble at Bay 13: It’s your ship, so no one’s going to take it from you. A miniatures skirmish.
  • Judge Dredd: Enforce the Law in the world’s most violent and crime-ridden city.
  • Masks: Settlers are on a poor frontier planet under the watchful eye of the Imperium. What could possibly go wrong?
  • Seek and Destroy: Take the part of Elite commandos rescuing hostages on a starliner.
  • Strontium Dog: Be the first to take part in this new setting for Traveller, where everyone plays a mutant bounty hunter.
  • Noble Blood: A noble retinue searches for a family heirloom.
  • Cold Dark Grave: You have one last chance to make enough money to keep your mining company running.

As always, the Mongoose store will be open all day, giving you the chance to pick up the latest goodies for Traveller and our other games.

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
