Traveller: Paskrin

Creatures of Distant Worlds Compendium (MGT 1e)

Last week was TravellerCon/USA. If you enjoy Traveller and couldn’t make it this year, I hope you can join us next year. It is a fun time and glad to see everyone again.

I have been ignoring Traveller lately, an oversight which I plan to correct starting today. Since I post a monster every Wednesday to this site, today I am posting a Traveller creature. In our first book, Creatures of Distant Worlds, we created a number of monsters for your players to shoot or get devoured by. one that everyone seemed to live or hate is the paskrin. This tiny tentacled rat has a habit of finding its way into the worst possible places, and they can eat through anything. Yes, I said, anything. Given enough time, of course. But fragile parts, like a ship’s fuel line, their teeth can make quick work of that.

They were originally created for 1e Mongoose Traveller. Here are there stats updated for MGT2e.

Animal Hits Speed
Paskrin 4 3 m
Skills Athletics (dexterity) 1, Melee (bite) 2, Recon 2, Stealth 1, Survival 2
Attacks Bite (D3, AP 1)
Traits Armour (+1), Fast Metabolism (+2), Small (–3)
Behaviour Scavenger, Reducer

Check out this creature and more in our book Creatures of Distant Worlds, available now at the Jon Brazer Enterprises Shop. Also be sure to download all of our books for Mongoose Traveller Second Edition at DriveThruRPG and RPGNow.com.

  1. we need more “Prelude to War” and 5th Frontier War stuff in general. Every Classic Traveller buff out there loved this period of Traveller History…
    Adventures
    Background Fluff
    Intrigue Dossiers (gritty fluff? dirty fluff?)
    etc, etc.
