Traveller: Mercenary Campaigns on the Rim

Games in the Solomani Rim are in a much more civilized region of space than the Spinward Marches. As such, games have less of a rough and tumble feel to them. Or do they? Here are three ways to run mercenary campaigns in the Solomani Rim. 1) Corporate Wars Just because the governments in thisContinue reading “Traveller: Mercenary Campaigns on the Rim”

Traveller: 3 Reasons to Include Ultra High Tech

Giving players some ultra high technology is controversial. That tech shouldn’t be easily available but they’re players and should have access to the cool stuff. It can be game breaking or game defining. While both sides have a valid argument, I come down in the side of including it for several reasons. 1) It MakesContinue reading “Traveller: 3 Reasons to Include Ultra High Tech”

Traveller: Drone Racing

Thinking about new careers got me thinking about my last book of careers: Foreven Worlds: Careers Beyond the Claw, specifically the athlete career. I designed it with auto racing in mind, putting a vehicle sports assignment. However, it got me thinking about what other ways the sport could change in the future. Which brings meContinue reading “Traveller: Drone Racing”

Traveller: Grav Belt Variations

Grav belts are a staple of Traveller, but their style is dated, if we are totally honest. They belong in a time where Kyle MacLachlin, Sir Patrick Stewart, Max von Sydow, and company were resisting the bloody Baron Harkonnen. It seems antiquated in a day and age where kids have a wheel in their shoeContinue reading “Traveller: Grav Belt Variations”

Traveller: Don’t Fear Low Passage

Since my first Traveller game, I’ve heard nothing but jokes about low berth passengers. “Why would anyone take that? You might die.” “It’s the way to go for those that don’t like their lives.” While there is a chance, I no longer think it is the ludicrous option that I use to. Background: for thoseContinue reading “Traveller: Don’t Fear Low Passage”

Traveller: Corona del Rey

It would be fair to say that 2020 really threw me off my game. April of last year, we posted the deck plan of a ship on Instagram, saying that it was coming soon, and I did not get back to it the rest of the year. It was not just this ship; there areContinue reading “Traveller: Corona del Rey”

Do You Run Holiday Game Sessions?

It is about this time of year that some GM’s run holiday-themed game sessions. That got me wondering, how many GM’s actually do that? Fantasy or science fiction, it doesn’t matter, holidays work in both. Does your star-travelling furry race celebrate Life Day? Do your dwarves celebrate the freezing of the ground? If you haveContinue reading “Do You Run Holiday Game Sessions?”
