Yesterday, I turned over Prelude to War: State of Chaos over to the editors for final approval. It is almost done and will soon be read for you to download. So what is the basic adventure about?
First, just a quick recap of the previous adventure, Prelude to War: The Rose of Death. At the urging of their Imperial Intelligence contact, Juliet Klein, the travellers went to the Cornathian Empire to rescue a doctor from a group of rebel group. So this adventure starts off with another briefing from Juliet Klein. This time, it is not about a rescue from immediate danger as much as it is an extraction from a dangerous location. The players travel to the remains of the Torres Monarchy to get a number of people out of harm’s way, whether they want removed or not.
And yes, I said a number of people. Instead of going after 1 person, you have 7 this time around. While the previous adventure was rather linear, this adventure allows the players the freedom to extract their targets in any order they desire. Additionally, this adventure is not presented as a single story, giving you the referee the freedom to add in your own stories to this adventure, making it more of your own story.
We are really excited about this adventure and have been looking forward to it for quite some time. We hope this adventure, written by Traveller fan favorite author Martin J. Dougherty, is one that will excite you and your group.
