Traveller Memes

I have made a few Traveller memes in the past. A new facebook group about Traveller memes started recently. There I posted one of my memes and John Watts (from GKG) posted another of my memes.

Both of these memes were about Cepheus Engine.

I made the one above for a post about Cepheus Engine.

cepheus vs. mongoose

The one above was made just for fun. Mongoose had changed the license agreement for the small publishers. Almost all of them started using Cepheus Engine instead. Continue reading Traveller Memes

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day 2019

LBB 317Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! We have some Irish themed gaming ideas for you. There are two free pdf files to download.

First some adventure ideas that can be used in the OTU. Irish themed pirates in the Neutral Zone between the (evil) Imperium and the Zhodani Consulate.

Then we want to remind you of the adventures in Eire Subsector that we have posted here before. Eire subsector is set in an ATU.

Both of these pdfs should be seen as a work in progress. If you have any ideas that you want me to add just contact me and we will add them in the version we present next Saint Patrick’s Day.

JTAS kickstarter from Mongoose

JTAS from Mongoose. This looks really good. There will be lots of stuff from the original JTAS from GDW that will be updated. There will also be some new stuff.

Mongoose has delivered some really nice kickstarters in the past. The only thing that worries me is Brexit.

There is a 112 page free preview that can be downloaded now.

One interesting thing in the preview is the Miniphants. In the Mongoose Sword World module they were not described as in the old JTAS #16. But in the preview, the Miniphants have not been changed from the original. That is a good thing. This means that Mongoose is de-canonizing their own (or parts of their own) problematic Sword World module. 🙂

The Baltic Loop

For a game in the not too distant future or maybe for the 2300AD. The Baltic Loop is a vactrain that can travel at supersonic speeds.

Baltic Loop
The distance between the stations are only 2-3 minutes. The train runs in both directions. 4 trains runs in each direction. This means that a new train arrives at the station every 9 minutes.

Adventure hooks:

The Island Games is held on Gotland, Ă…land and Saaremaa. The participants from many other island arrive by air in Helsinki or Stockholm. Now the PCs must help one confused team to go to the correct island using the Baltic loop.

The Baltic Loop is closed down one day to try to set a speed record (and beat the Californian HyperLoop). Agents from the Californian HyperLoop tries to sabotage the record attempt. The PCs must help with the record attempt and stop the Californian agents.

Courland has just become an independent nation. The Latvian flag has to be replaced on every sign at the loop. Latvian agents are trying to sabotage this. Polish agents turn the Courland flags upside down to make them look like the Polish flag. The PCs must stop the Latvian  and Polish agents.
