Foreven Worlds: Dispatch Science Shuttle

The Dispatch Science Shuttle is a mobile laboratory. Its small size lets it be taken inside any larger, jump capable ship and transported anywhere in a quick time frame. Add it that its military sensors and onboard science lab and it is the laborary you need in the field. Top that off with the fuel process, fuel scoops and an oversized fuel tank and this ship can act as an emergency generator and refuel tender, increasing its functionality.

The Dispatch Science Shuttle was originally designed for governments to have a rapid response lab ship for disasters. When the Rowan manufacturing company started getting order for them from corporations looking for a planetary test vehicle, they knew they had a hit on their hands.

This ship appears in the upcoming third installment of the Foreven Worlds: Prelude to War Adventure Path, due out this Summer. Order your copies of the first two installments of this series of adventures today at DriveThruRPG with the Rose of Death and State of Chaos.

Pathfinder: What Adventure Paths Need SideQuests/Adventure 7’s?

Deadly Delves: Along Came A Spider (PFRPG)

When we asked in this post, I did not expect to get such a clear answer expressing the a need for high level adventures. Well, we heard you and are looking to figure out where to start.

One thing we heard over and over again is “Give us an adventure 7 cap stone to take the campaign to 20th level.” Ok. We also heard, “We need side quests for the adventure paths.” Alright. So the question then is, which adventure paths are most in demand for such adventures.

The poll below has all the adventure paths releases in the last 3 years. Please vote on what you want to see. There are also options for those that don’t necessarily want something that ties into an adventure path. The last option is for those that want that more mythic adventures since there were a few people saying that as well.

Please share with us what you want. If you do not see an answer that you want, let us know in the comments below.

Traveller: Enter the State of Chaos

Long Live the Monarchy

Ms. Klein assigns the travellers to extract seven people from the Torres Monarchy, a region of Alespron Subsector engulfed in a bloody civil war. Here the characters can see for themselves what kind of havoc SORAG can cause if left unchecked. To make matters worse, Zhodani warships are attempting to pacify the more rebellious worlds, only serving to make the people more militant. Can the travellers convince their targets to come peacefully, or will they have to use force to achieve their goal? Will they be caught by Zhodani forces trying to remove such high value persons from that region of space?

This volume of Foreven Worlds continues the Prelude to War Adventure Path and includes:

  • State of Chaos, a Traveller adventure for 4-5 characters, by Martin J. Dougherty
  • The history and gazetteer of Queen’s Heart, a planet of stability surrounded by systems engulfed in war
  • Details on the layout and crew of the Dlaftpar, a Zhodani cargo ship that gets goods to market, food to refugees, and does anything else that will pay
  • Six new Patrons to give your travellers opportunities take some money on the side and develop their characters
  • Ten new creatures of these distant worlds to provide your characters with a new and different challenge

Arrive in the Nick of Time! Be the Big Darn Hero!

Traveller: Monsters Are Coming

We are sharing what is inside the upcoming Prelude to War: State of Chaos. Earlier this week we were talking about the adventure itself. Today we are sharing details about one of the appendixes after the adventure, the one covering the monsters.

Weird and unknown creatures have always been a stable of science fiction as well as fantasy. From the crystalline entity and salt-sucking creature of Star Trek to the rancor and the wampa of Star Wars to the giant rock monster of Galaxy Quest, there’s always lots of monsters. And Traveller is no different. Whether you are looking for a psionic rat to invest your ship, a genetically engineered hyena cub that is all the rage of the nobility to have one of their own, or a dog that the ancients scattered to various planets and mutated to a mean, hairless beast, this issue has you covered. So if you want your neobarbarian bandits to be even more viscous, give them a demon dog. Want to throw in a side plot about a giant bat that has been mutilating livestock, we’ve got you covered. Or, if your players need a no-consequence combat to help them get into the game, pull out a giant spider that spits acid and let the players go to town. The choices are up to you.

Animal Hits Speed
Devil Dogs 15 6 m
Skills Athletics (dexterity) 1, Melee (bite) 2, Recon 1
Attacks Bite +2 (1D+1)
Traits Armour (+1), Heightened Senses
Behavior Carnivore, Killer

Traveller: State of Chaos Coming Soon

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.

Foreven: Prepare for War with The Rose of Death

A Plague of Roses

When bacterial geneticist Dr. Rose is captured by a rebel group with murderous intent, it falls to your travellers to infiltrate their secret base and rescue her. Along the way, they must also intercept a weapons shipment bound for the rebels and deceive their contact within the organization. All the while, millions of lives hang in the balance. Can the travellers stop the Army of Unity before they carry out their nefarious plot and discover who is truly behind their actions?

This volume of Foreven Worlds launches the Prelude to War Adventure Path and includes:

  • The Rose of Death, a Traveller adventure for 4-5 characters, by Dale C. McCoy, Jr.
  • The history and gazetteer of Cornath, a planet of refugees who fled Imperium and Zhodani life and engineered an environmental disaster
  • Details on the military strength and organization of the Army of Unity, a rebel group with deadly ambitions
  • Four new Contacts, Allies, Rivals, and Enemies for your characters
  • Four new ships and a space station to flavor your game

Foreven: More than an Adventure

All week long, we have been showing off what is inside the first volume in the Prelude to War Adventure Path: The Rose of Death. Monday we started with the cover, sharing it with you as wallpaper for your screens. Yesterday, we shared with you some details on how the adventure starts. Today we share with you some details about the various sections after the adventure of this volume.

The two most distinguishing aspects of an adventure path are a series of linked adventures that form a campaign and additional material with each adventure. This additional material serves many purposes. When your players decide to do something that is not covered by the adventure itself, you are not left with nothing. You have a basis to improvise an adventure. Similarly, you can plan your own adventures that take place in the same locations and have a basis from which to start. So if you do not want to run this specific adventure, you can base an adventure in that location (or simply move the planet to elsewhere in the OTU or anywhere in your own homebrew). Some articles will expand on the culture of a people or a planet. Other articles will detail ships or vehicles that are common to the region. Sometimes we will feature Contacts, Allies, Rivals, and Enemies (or C.A.R.E as we call it) that you can give to your players during chargen that are designed to be integrate well with the adventure path. Each volume of the adventure path the articles will change up but will be relevant to the campaign.

Cornath Map
For this volume we have four articles: a gazetteer to the planet Cornath, details on the Army of Unity (the bad guys for this volume) with a full map of their asteroid space station, a C.A.R.E article, and a few ships found in the Cornathian Empire. As you can see in the picture above (click on it for a larger image), I’m going to talk about our gazetteer of Cornath. The players land in the starport of Cornath City, they don’t get to see much of the planet. However, that doesn’t mean that they won’t go off and do their own thing, as players are known to do. Nor does that mean that they won’t come back between adventures looking for work. Take New Zhodane for example. This region to the south of Cornath City is where a large number of Zhodani defectors settled. If a character ran away from the Zhodani Consulate looking for a better life, he will easily find him- or herself among friends here without being ruled by psionic mind-adjusters. Or if your players are looking for work where they get to shoot up something, look no further than the Northern Plains. This region is littered with farms that are having trouble with wild animals killing their livestock and destroying their crops. Players can hunt down packs of beasts and maybe discover another problem along the way. *evil GM grin*

One other thing I neglected to mention. Anything I write, I like to throw in little easter egg references to tv shows, movies, video games, and anything else I enjoy. My favorite reference for this volume is in the Cornath articles. Fans of the tv show Burn Notice will know the name Chuck Finley. A variation of that name makes its way onto Cornath. I just hope Bruce Campbell fans enjoy this as much as I do.

Foreven: Adventure Awaits

All week long, we are sharing with you some of what is inside The Rose of Death for the Prelude to War Adventure Path. Yesterday, we gave you a closeup look at the cover. Today, we are talking about the adventure itself.

black business woman colorsFirst and foremost, this Foreven Worlds volume is an adventure. It is here in the first few pages of this volume that the players meet Juliet Klein. I say, the players meet her because your characters have already met her. They do not know her well, but that will change over the course of the adventure path.

So who exactly is Juliet Klein? First and foremost, Ms Klein is the person hiring the Travellers for a series of jobs throught the Foreven Sector. Where does she get these jobs? Well, she’s a member of the Imperial Secret Services. That’s right, Juliet Klein is a righ-ranking Imperial spy, and your characters are her assets. Why are you doing her spying for her instead of she doing the work? Like I said above, she’s paying you, but also she needs to maintain deniability. If these mission goes wrong, the Imperium does not want to start a war over this, and that is exactly what might happen if she were to be caught and her true identity discovered.

Your characters, on the other hand, are expendable. Or to put that another way, your characters are The Expendables. That’s right, one of your characters would very well be Stalone! Or Jet Li! Just saying.

Foreven: So Where Does The Rose of Death Stand

Incase you haven’t heard, High Guard came out for Traveller this week. I’ve said previously that we’re almost done with the first volume in the Foreven Worlds: Prelude to War Adventure Path, The Rose of Death, but that we are waiting for High Guard’s release so we can make sure the new ships and the space station in it are up to spec. So now that its out and we’ve had a chance to compare the final version with the playtest version we designed our materials off of, where are we. …

Well …

Certain key parts of our space station changed. So I’m redrawing parts of a 1,400 ton space station. No problem. 😉

So, we’re adjusting. We knew this was a possibility so we’re ok, but it will delay the final version longer than we would like. Have no fear, it’ll be out soon. Next week, we’ll be starting previews. Look forward to the cover artwork as computer and phone wallpaper.

Basically, this is our first adventure path, and we want to take a little time to make sure we get it right.

UPDATE (8/19/19): Well crap. The part that I thought was changed was just in a place where I was not looking. It wasn’t changed; I just missed it. So now I have to put the map back the way it was. I’m glad I had not finished the changes, but I wish I had saved a copy of the original. Oh well.
