Traveller-20 (T20)

The Traveller's Handbook (D20)
Traveller has been updated to the popular D20 rules in this beautiful hardback.
Note that you will need a copy of WOC's "Core Rules" to use this book. I'd recommend the
D20 Modern Roleplaying Game rules to get you started.

"The Travellers' Handbook - High Adventure in the Far Future!

Traveller20 (T20) combines the popular d20 game mechanics with the most fully-realized science-fiction game setting ever - Marc Miller's award-winning Traveller!

Presented in a single volume, these rules allow you to go anywhere, do anything…

BE WHO YOU WANT TO BE: T20 presents 16 character classes, from brash Ace Pilots to studious Academics; from tough Mercenaries to streetwise Merchants. Characters can develop a wide range of skills and feats, from Combat Engineering to Astrogation. They can even study the powers of the mind as a psionic adept!

GO WHERE YOU LIKE: Design worlds and whole star systems with the system generation rules; populate them with human and alien societies, animal life and natural hazards. The rules cover technology levels, social organization and the unpleasant consequences of hazards like vacuum exposure or radiation burns.

MEET INTERESTING PEOPLE: Strange aliens and stranger humans are detailed as player and NPC races. Racial stats are presented, along with typical motivations and psychology for the various alien species. Aliens include the Vargr, Hivers, Wanderers and K'Kree, while the many human cultures include the Solomani, Vilani, Zhodani and Luriani people.

FIGHT DEADLY FOES: The T20 combat system scales between starships, vehicles and personnel. Blast ships or ground targets with lasers and meson guns; battle it out with guns, grenades and hand weapons. Don powered armor or activate a nuclear damper for defense. T20 covers weapons ranging from crude clubs to gauss rifles and laser carbines, and even vehicle-mounted fusion guns.

TRAVEL IN STYLE: Design, buy and operate a range of vehicles from steam locomotives to attack speeders. Trade among the stars aboard a Subsidized Merchant or captain a million-ton dreadnaught.

AND THERE'S MORE: The T20 system allows any style of science-fiction adventure to be created. The whole range of human (and alien) activities are covered: speculative trade, starship combat, carousing in starport taverns… if adventurers do it, it's in here. The Traveller's handbook also contains guidance on setting up and running a T20 game, awarding experience, and tailoring the campaign to the needs of the players. It also presents an introduction to the Official Traveller Universe, which will be detailed in forthcoming releases from QuikLink Interactive!"

Gateway to Destiny
The Gateway Domain Campaign Sourcebook
Settled long ago during the Rule of Man, Gateway Domain is both backwater and frontier: a bastion against foreign influences and a pathway for commerce. Yet the Domain is beset by troubles within and without: war with the Solomani, turbulent Imperial politics, and the machinations of the sinister Lords of Thunder. It is here, in the Gateway Domain, that the fate of the Third Imperium will be decided. Gateway Domain is indeed the gateway to destiny.

This sourcebook, forming part of the official Traveller universe, presents the whole of Gateway Domain in a single volume. Within are details of over 1000 worlds scattered across four sectors of space, plus a wealth of information on the people, places, and wonders of this troubled region.

* History of the Domain: A detailed history of the Gateway Domain, covering the rise of its native inhabitants, the later explorations and settlement of the region, as well as the political and military events of the region. A complete timeline is also provided.
* People of the Domain: The Domain is dominated by Humaniti, but numerous alien races with their own agendas and desires also inhabit the region.
* The Dominant Powers: A comprehensive look at the most influential power of the region, the Third Imperium, as well as the three other dominant interstellar states bordering the Domain: The 2000 Worlds of the K'kree, the Hive Federation, and the Solomani Confederation.
* The Pocket Empires: Located throughout the region the Domain encompasses are more than 30 individual interstellar states of varying size and ideology, with detailed backgrounds provided for each.
* Organizations and Megacorporations: Governments aren't the only ones that wield considerable influence and power across the region. From the 13 Imperial chartered megacorporations to the various political and religious movements to the smaller supercorporations of the region, all are covered.
* Personalities: An introduction to a number of major and minor power players in the Domain, including Archduke Erechs and his rival for power, former Archduke Nells, as well as the K'kree Nar'grxltir, who is known to represent both the interests of the 2000 Worlds and the Lords of Thunder.
* Political Map: A full-page map denoting the coverage and locations of the major and minor interstellar states and polities within the Gateway region.
* Quadrant Maps: 16 full-page, detailed Quadrant maps covering all four sectors of the Domain. Each map is broken down into four subsectors and supplemented with full Universal World Profiles for each world. Further, more detailed profiles are provided for three worlds within each quadrant.
* Adventure! An entire chapter is devoted to providing tips, suggestions, and inspiration for running adventures in the Gateway Domain. To further kickstart your campaign, a full-length adventure is included!"

GURPS Traveller

GURPS Traveller: Science Fiction Adventure in the Far Future (2nd edition)
GURPS Traveller, by Steve Jackson Games, is the home of one of the in-print versions of Traveller.
GURPS is a fine game system, and its d6-based mechanics translate well to the old Traveller supplements. Note: You'll need the GURPS basic rule books to run a game.
-Wayne


"Hang in there Beowulf. Help is on the way . . .
Marc Miller's Traveller is one of the most fully realized game backgrounds ever created ... a vast empire of over 11,000 systems, with a turbulent history dating back thousands of years. Locales can range from a crowded spaceport to a lonely frontier outpost, from the teeming cities of the Core to the unexplored worlds on the edge of the Great Rift. Characters can be merchant princes, diplomats, soldiers, politicians, nobles, criminals ... or all of them at once. Political intrigues, trading schemes, mind-wrenching alien enigmas, mercenary raids, wars . . . almost anything is possible.
GURPS Basic Set, Compendium I: Character Creation, and GURPS Space are required to use this book in a GURPS campaign. Ultra-Tech and Ultra-Tech 2 will be useful. As a sourcebook, GURPS Traveller can be used with any SF campaign.
The newly revised GURPS TravellerSecond Edition

melds this exciting universe with the rules system of GURPS, and includes rules for creating new characters and for converting old ones from other Traveller rules systems. It includes a modular starship construction system (fully compatible with GURPS Vehicles) and a space combat system for ship-to-ship encounters.

GURPS Traveller also brings you the official alternate universe for Traveller; in which Emperor Strephon, and the Third Imperium, have survived to face new challenges.

Continuing support for this line includes books on alien races, scouts, worlds, and playing a mercenary in the Traveller universe.

GURPS Basic Set, Compendium I: Character Creation, and GURPS Space are required to use this book in a GURPS campaign. Ultra-Tech and Ultra-Tech 2 will be useful. As a sourcebook, GURPS Traveller can be used with any SF campaign."

GURPS Traveller Behind the Claw: The Spinward Marches Sourcebook
"Behind The Claw: Slang phrase referring to those regions of the Third Imperium lying beyond the Great Rift. Almost a year from the Capital by Xboat, the Spinward Marches is a frontier region, scene of five Frontier Wars and innumerable skirmishes. The Marches are one of the most troubled regions of the entire Imperium.

Behind The Claw details the Spinward Marches, a complete sector of space. Over four hundred star systems are described in detail, along with essays on the Imperial Nobility and system of government, a detailed history of the region, referee's information, current events and a wealth of adventure material. The setting is rich and diverse, with unlimited scope for adventuring.

The Spinward Marches was first sector to be covered in the original Traveller background, and it is where the vast majority of campaigns are set. In many ways, it is Traveller's 'home.'"

"Beyond the borders of the Third Imperium, the Interstellar Scout Service seeks out strange new worlds! A Scout has to be ready for anything . . . or die.

GURPS Traveller: Far Trader
"Regina Departure, this is S.S. Freeman, passing the 100D limit, jumping outsystem to Jenghe at this time, no estimated time of return."

"Freeman, I show you departing Regina System at 16:05-115-1120. Jump approved; squawk 0000. Come back and see us sometime."

"Regina Departure, this is S.S. Freeman, squawking all zeroes; will do, thanks and out."

GURPS Traveller: Starports
"Patrol, trade and Xboat routes are the lifelines of the Imperium, and starports are the anchors to which they are tethered. Serving as trade centers, customs offices and outposts of civilization in far-flung systems, they play a central role in the lives of starfarers, and are a crucial source of goods, wealth and information for even the most planetbound of souls. At the same time, they are havens for smugglers, fugitives and black marketeers.

Starports classifies standard starports and describes their facilities, organization and functions. It includes examples and plans, and guidelines for starport adventures and encounters. It is designed to complement Far Trader and the upcoming Starships supplement."

GURPS Traveller: Starships
"From launches to liners, from patrol boats to pirates, a starfaring campaign requires ships. GURPS Traveller: Starships details the "View from the Deck," the experience of being aboard a starship. Passengers and pursers, bridge crews and black gang, owners and deckhands . . . they're all here. Charters and salvage operations are included, spiced up with encounters, adventure seeds and a cast of NPC owners, masters and crew.

Much of the book is devoted to ship designs and design philosophy, with a selection of starships and smaller vessels -- the traders, lab ships, yachts and prospectors likely to be crewed by PCs. Each ship has its own detailed writeup and deck plans. Another section expands on the starship design rules in GURPS Traveller (including components for TL 7-9, TL 11, and TL 13 designs). It collects all previously published components in one volume and offers new accessories and design options, as well as descriptions of the technology.

Ships detailed in GURPS Traveller: Starships include:

* Seeker (Suleiman II class)
* Yacht (Lady of Shalott class)
* Safari Ship (Animal class)
* Old/Low-tech Trader (Birdsong class -- new)
* Lab Ship (Kugashin class)
* SDB and Jump Shuttle (Dragon class)"

GURPS Traveller: Ground Forces
"When human worlds are threatened, people depend on the Imperial Marines and the Unified Armies -- the Ground Forces. They are the only soldiers most citizens ever see. People may follow orbiting battleships as bright 'stars' in the sky, but for the average man it is the Marine in battledress and the imposing bulk of an Army grav tank that embody the Imperium.

GURPS Traveller: Ground Forces covers the "ground pounders" of the Third Imperium and their comrades in arms, the sailors of the "wet" navy and the pilots of the Close Orbit and Aerospace Command. "

GURPS Traveller Rim of Fire: The Solomani Rim Sourcebook
"The Solomani Rim sector lies at the rimward edge of the Third Imperium. It is an ancient, densely populated region. For 6,000 years, the Solomani Rim has been a place of epic revolutions and wars. Today it remains a flashpoint for galactic conflict . . . The Third Imperium occupies hundreds of worlds, including Terra, the human homeworld. But much of the sector is under the control of the despotic Solomani Confederation.

Rim of Fire covers the Solomani Rim sector in detail. Writeups for over 400 worlds are included. Some are described in great detail, providing instant adventure settings, while others are merely sketched in to allow the individual GM to customize his campaign. There is also an extensive history of the sector, including detailed descriptions of the Interstellar Wars and the rise of the Solomani Movement. And, of course, there are campaign and adventure seeds, and a trove of referee's information.

The Solomani Rim has always been a place where the actions of individual heroes could change the course of history. Today there are still many challenges for the GURPS Traveller player. . . on the Rim of Fire!"

GURPS Traveller: Nobles
"Lords of the Stars

From the Imperial family to the lowest knight; from the fantastically wealthy duchess on her private estate world to the impoverished baronet who barely has a Free Trader's bunk to call his own; from the archduke who governs hundreds of worlds to the knight with no formal duties – in Traveller, the aristocracy plays a major role in society, in government, and in the military.

Would you like to serve one of the Imperium's nobles . . . or be one? GURPS Traveller: Nobles details the lifestyle, fortunes, duties, and responsibilities of the nobility in the Third Imperium, the Vilani ruling class at the height of the Ziru Sirka, and the Darrian and Zhodani systems.

Nobles contains:

A close-up look at the most powerful people in the GURPS Traveller universe, with complete GURPS stats for 13 major characters – including Emperor Strephon and Empress Iolanthe – and capsule biographies of many others.

Today, the Sword Worlders are in search of a new destiny, in a universe where their fierce pride seems headed for an inevitable fall. GURPS Traveller: Sword Worlds brings this unique culture to life.

GURPS Traveller Alien Races


GURPS Traveller Alien Races 1: Zhodani, Vargr and Other Races of the Spinward Marches
"The human-descended Zhodani have long embraced psi powers in their society, in contrast to the persecution that psis suffer within the Imperium. The Vargr are a race of aliens descended from transplanted Terran canines. Both are formidable rivals to Imperial power in the Spinward Marches sector.

Alien Races 1 for GURPS Traveller has everything you need to set a campaign in the Zhodani Consulate or Vargr Extents. It includes starship deck plans and vehicle designs; typical weaponry; rules and templates for creating player characters; up-to-date history and cultural information, and much more.

Also, seen here for the first time are three significant "minor races" from Zhodani and Vargr territory: the tyrannosaurian Drakarans, the arachnoid Clotho and the enigmatic Sheol. Almost unknown in Imperial territory, these races are growing powers in the Zhodani Consulate and the Vargr Extents..."

GURPS Traveller Alien Races 2: Aslan, K'Kree, and Other Races Rimward of the Imperium
"The second book in the GURPS Traveller Alien Races series, Alien Races 2: Aslan and K'kree addresses the biology, home worlds, culture, and society of the fierce Aslan, the centaurian K'kree, and two minor species. It details their historical involvement with the Imperium, from first contact to present, and presents racial templates, rules for playing alien characters, and examples of unique technologies and ship designs.

The Aslan warrior race has a mindset focused on honor and glory; their traders and mercenaries are found throughout the Spinward Marches and the Solomani Sphere. Their wanderlust and combative nature make them well-suited to adventuring as player-characters. Their habit of insidiously grabbing land when no one is looking also makes them good recurring adversaries in a campaign.

The militantly vegetarian K'kree are driven by their faith to rule the Galaxy, and eliminate all meat-eaters. Players may join this crusade, fight against it, or simply try to make a living while it goes on around them. The K'kree are constantly embroiled in skirmishes with the Vargr, and keep an uneasy peace along their borders with the Hivers and humanity.

Alien Races 2 also features two new minor races: The Inyx are a race of aquatic parasites who absorb electrical energy from their whale-sized hosts. The Devi Intelligence, an unusual K'Kree subject race, consisting of the sedentary Intellects, who resemble colonies of giant fungi, and their mobile spores, the Shiverbats."

GURPS Traveller Alien Races 3: Hivers, Droyne, Ancients, and Other Enigmatic Races
"The third book in the Alien Races series describes two of the MOST alien races in the Traveller universe - the Droyne and the Hivers. The Droyne, which Imperial archaeologists are beginning to suspect are identical to the ancient race that scattered Humaniti and created the Vargr, are among the most pacific of all the inhabitants of the Imperium. But if they were once so powerful, why have they given up on the jump-drive and the other trappings of interstellar power? What did they learn that Humaniti will not?

And what about the Hivers, the strange six-limbed creatures who dominate dozens of other races within their Hive Federation? Why do they treat their offspring so strangely? Does their incredible intelligence translate to wisdom? Or does their lust to manipulate others represent a threat to the Imperium?

Also described are three minor races: the Hiver's laughing mercenaries, the Ithklur; the tiny nocturnal Lithkind; and the fluorine-breathing Inheritors, who inhabit a Dyson sphere created by the Ancients.

Special bonus! This book includes 'gold' cardboard punch-out versions of the 36 Droyne coyns, and complete instructions for Droyne divination. Droyne characters can now 'cast the coyns' to determine their future actions . . . and Human characters can wonder why it works . . ."

This book concentrates on the five asteroids which make up 'Glisten City,' the government and business center of the system. Trade, business, scientific investigations, and high-level politics rub shoulders with gritty asteroid miners, huge factory complexes, shipyards, and interstellar intrigue."

GURPS Traveller Planetary Survey 5: Tobibak: The Savage Sea

GURPS Traveller Planetary Survey 6: Darkmoon
"Welcome to Darkmoon Imperial Prison. I am Warden Kaede Malone, and you are very lucky. Instead of a filthy, lice-infested prison mine, you've come to a clean, state-of-the-art correctional facility.

"Darkmoon Prison is operated under Ministry of Justice charter by Schunamann und Sohn AG. You will work hard to repay your debt to society for the crimes you committed, and your debt to SuSAG for providing the necessities of life here. If you demonstrate contrition and participate in recommended programs, you may qualify for a change in your status and stay at a minimum-security facility. I see the mention that this is a SuSAG operation has caused a stir. Don't be afraid! SuSAG pharmaceuticals are all extensively tested on animals before any human trials are run."


The Darkmoon system has been many things – a base for the Imperial Navy, a System Defense Boat and Space-Submarine Warfare School, the last stop of a fringe group of cultists seeking to escape the downfall of civilization . . . but when the Navy left, the system became a backwater, and economic ruin set in. To the rescue came the megacorporation Schunamann und Sohn AG, who took over the SDB School and turned it into a maximum-security enterprise.

On a gas giant moon under miles of ice and water, this "escape-proof" prison is the final stop for 3,000 of Imperium's worst scum, from corsairs to Ine Givar terrorists. But Darkmoon is no ordinary prison world . . . a prisoner who steps out of line may find that he's been reclassified "lab rat."

GURPS Traveller Deck Plan 5: Sulieman-class Scout/Courier
"The 100-ton Sulieman is one of the most commonly encountered vessels in Imperial space and on its borders. The Scout Service uses thousands of Suliemans for reconnaisance, survey, courier/VIP transport, and liaison duties; the Sulieman II seeker is the standard mineral survey craft. Retired scouts are sometimes granted the long-term use of a Sulieman for private prospecting or trade.

Because this vessel is so easily available to PCs, this deck plan will be of interest to players as well as GMs. It comprises 8 double-sided sheets (hexes on one side, squares on the other), and includes a set of Cardboard Heroes miniatures to crew the ship and provide encounters."

GURPS Traveller Deck Plan 6: Dragon-class System Defense Boat
Unlike the prior Deck Plan releases - which were sold in ziplocs with a glossy cover sheet - Deck Plan 6 was released in a cover sleeve and shrinkwrapped.
-Wayne


"The Dragon-class 400-ton system defense boat is the most commonly encountered SDB in the Imperium. Dragons are used for customs patrol, piracy supression, search & rescue operations, and many other missions. This set also includes deck plans for the 200-ton clamp-on jump shuttle, used to transfer SDBs from system to system (and a starship in its own right).

Because the SDB is so often encountered on non-military missions, this deck plan will be of interest even to GMs who are not running military-oriented campaigns. It includes 10 double-sided sheets (hexes on one side, squares on the other), and a set of Cardboard Heroes miniatures."
