"A State-of-the-Art Supplement Approved for Use With TRAVELLER

In the years 420 and 1065, the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service published the First and Second Grand Surveys.

But now, with the brand-new state-of-the-art material in this book, you can have all the detail you ever wanted.

If you already use Scouts, Grand Survey continues where Scouts left off. And if you don't use Scouts, you can still use Grand Survey to learn more about a world. Starting with the basic Traveller UPP for the world, Grand Survey leads you step-by-step to detailed physical characteristics and an accurate map of the world.

Whether you're a Traveller player or a referee, Grand Survey tells what you want to know when you arrive at a new world.

Chapters include—
• World Design: Extensive rules, charts, and tables to tell you everything about the physical characteristics of a world: details of atmosphere, volcanic activity, tectonic plates, mapping, minerals and other resources, climate and temperature, population demographics, starport locations, ice caps, deserts, and more. Complete with examples.
• World Profile Form: The new imperial Scout Form 20, to record all the physical details of a world. Also includes a full size world hex grid for precise mapping.
• Imperial Scout Survey Procedures: How a survey of a world takes place, including new skills for Scout characters.

The Early Adventures: Background and Adventures from Travellers' Digest Issues 1-4
"THE QUEST FOR ADVENTURE
The Early Adventures introduce you to four fascinating characters: a Scout, a journalist, a scientist, and an almost-perfected pseudo-biological robot. Learn about them as you piay out these four exciting adventures:
Of Xboats and Friends: Dur Telemon, the ex-Scout, wants to stop off and visit a friend at an express boat station. Suddenly, events take a sinister turn when the party stumbles upon an amazing secret that may cost them their lives. Included are cut-away deck plans of the 1,000-ton xboat tender, complete with its MEGATRAVELLER Universal Craft Profile.
The Journey of the Sojourn Moon: A strange backward culture inhabits the bright side of the tidally locked world Wal-ta-ka. Who are the "Children of Wal-ta-ka?" Akidda Laagiir and his companions travel there to find the real story of these mysterious nomads descended from starfaring colonists. An extremely detailed treatment of the world and its lifeforms is included, as well as additional details on Dr. Krenstein's robot companion, AB-101.
Visit to Antiquity: Emotions run high when the four travellers encounter a group of Vargr researchers at a historically important Ancient site. The Vargr and our four characters make some startling new discoveries. Also featured is an article on Gvegh, the most common Vargr language, and how it reflects one widespread Vargr culture of the region.
The Gold of Zurrian: A mysterious murder on board an interstellar liner catches the passengers by surprise, and to make matters worse all evidence points to one of our four characters. Can the others clear their companion's good name in time — before the real murderer decides to take matters into his own hands? Included are detailed deck plans and the Universal Craft Profile of the 1,000-ton liner where the adventure takes place.

AND LOTS OF BACKGROUND MATERIAL

Are you looking for new technology? Within are excerpts from the first year's 'Tech Briefs', an ongoing feature highlighting new devices for Traveller. (There are even some fantastically high-tech Ancient artifacts.) Plenty of diagrams and charts are included.
Referees, would you like to add pizzazz to your adventures? And without extra work? The adventures in this special book are packed with ideas and tips for leading your players through each adventure. Watching the same group of characters develop adds excitement to your role-playing, while your players' ability to role-play expands with every game-And each adventure gives the referee plenty of detailed NPC's to play with."

Grand Explorations

This accessory was announced in Traveller's Digest, Issue 13. Grand Explorations never saw print. Too bad, sounds interesting.

Look for this, the biggest book we have ever published, early next year [1989]."

From the back cover of the World Builder's Handbook:
"A Scout survey team takes advantage of the first light on Deyis II, seeking to verify recent rumors of unusual lifeforms on the world. The Scout in the left foreground is pleased because his neural activity sensor has just registered a "semi-intelligent, unknown" lifeform 500 meters ahead. Meanwhile, his partner waives to her fellow Scouts hovering overhead in their Kankurur G-Carrier. The Scouts from the G-Carrier, in grav belts, are coming to help home in on the newly discovered lifeform."




A.I. - Roleplaying Adventure in a TechnoFantastic Age
"Earth: 1500 years in the future — or is it Earth 1500 years in the past?

A massive citadel towers over your village and you tremble at the stories of the strange lifeforms which lurk in the shadowy wilderness that encircles you. For a generous offering, the priest-adept will "resurrect" your tools when they die. The great citadel provides for your basic needs, while you trade for "seeds," seeking to fulfil not only your material needs, but your wants, too. If you can just buy, beg, or borrow the right "nanneez" and the right raw materials, then you can finally grow the devices you'll need to help you on your quest for the ultimate tool: a GENII (Genetically Enhanced Nanotech Intelligent Interface)!

Shaping the decayed future with nanotechnology (molecular-level machinery), machine intelligence, and genetic engineering, A.I. puts you on an alien, future Earth with unlimited adventure possibilities. Remnants of ultra-high technology make the miraculous become reality.

---

A.I.'s new "fuzzy logic" and object-oriented approach eliminates the mounds of rules and lets you start playing right away.

The basic game includes: 200 pages of background and rules and a fold-out world map of the Alien Earth with area maps of the major citadels. $25.

A.I. Not technology and magic - but technology AS magic!"
