Traveller: Skyride, a TL 16 Gravcar

Typically in Traveller, I work in the independent worlds of the Foreven Sector. The only problem with this region, outside of the Zhodani Consulate the tech level rarely exceeds 10. So much of the cool toys in the Central Supply Catelogue, Vehicle Handbook, High Guard are off limit to me. So now that Mongoose published Behind the Claw, we have many TL 15 systems and even a TL 16 world to play with. So I figured why not create one for it. We figured this one would be a fuel efficient upper class family vehicle that can go anywhere on the planet as well as into orbit. Nothing crazy with this one, just your basic grocery getter.

If you want to see more high tech equipment, vehicles, ships, and more (TL 14+), leave a comment below.

  1. If this is a ‘Grocery Getter’ why does it need Armour, Stealth and Camouflage?

    • Armour is from the base materials used in construction. In the same way a car will stop someone from hitting you with a club, this is the same. None was added during construction.

      Stealth and Camouflage are part of the standard stat block. The dash means it has no bonus.

    • Have you ever *been* to Whole Foods and tried to park? I think armor, stealth, camo and a weapon would be useful!
