Now you can bring to life new and varied characters for your Traveller game with Foreven Worlds: Careers Beyond the Claw!

This 30-page book for the Traveller Roleplaying Game features the following careers:

  • Athlete—a former sports professional who pushes their limits of physical endurance
  • Customer Service—a dedicated waitstaffer, someone who gets yelled at when the company makes a mistake, or a people pleaser who makes the customer happy no matter what
  • Frontierist—an explorer who goes beyond the edge of civilization to mine and forage, search for ancient ruins, or change a planet’s environment to make it habitable
  • Medical Professional—a person who dedicates their life to performing delicate surgery, nursing the sick and wounded, providing long-term care, or providing physical therapist
  • System Guard—a member of the space military protecting a single solar system, whether they’re part of the line crew, inspectors’ department, or planetary patrol

Traveller: Another Branch of Military Service

Not long ago we shared with you two of the five new careers in the upcoming Foreven Worlds: Careers Beyond the Claw. Those careers being Athlete and Medical Professional. Today we sharing with you two more careers in the PDF.

The first is a new branch of military service. The System Guard is similar to the coast guard of a modern military. They handle a mix of law enforcement and issues a full navy must deal with, but with smaller ships and they don’t head out into the deep waters, which in this case is deep space. The three assignments of the System Guard are the Crew/Line, Inspectors, and Planetary Patrol. The crew/line are the officers and enlisted personnel of the ships that make up any system guard. They deal with pirates, poachers, and ship thieves plaguing a star system. The job of the inspectors is to make sure smugglers fail to import or export illegal persons or cargo. The planetary patrol staff the orbital gun platforms, space stations and repair facilities that support the system guard ships. In the Foreven Worlds this branch of the military replaces the navy of the Imperium or Zhodani Consulate. In both of these and other interstellar governments that sport a full navy, the system guard protects the system when the baby is elsewhere and when situations do not require a military response.

The second career we are sharing today is the one that the cover image represents, the Frontierist. Those that pursue such a career to the edge of explored space go where few if any have gone before. Whether you are sifting through the ruins of some lost civilization, hunting mineral wealth where none have looked before, or attempting to change the environment of a world to be more habitable for humanoid or other sentient life forms, your work takes you where few live today. Being well beyond the ragged edge of civilization doesn’t just thrill you; it is where you belong, seeing a location in its untarnished glory, breathing air none have in countless generations, and making off with minerals none new were there before. The three most common Frontierist assignments are Archeologist, Prospector, and Terraformer.

Traveller: New Careers Coming Your Way

Careers form the basis of characters in Traveller. They help determine the experiences our characters have, the trials that the PCs face. The core book covers a broad range of careers, but none of them in depth. More so, they have a number of gaps that need to be filled. That is why we at JBE created five new careers for your game. Today we are talking about two of them.

What are these new careers? First up we have the Medical Professional. The Traveller Core Rulebook already has a physician as an assignment of the Scholar career. The medical field, however is vastly larger than this one sub-career, and we wanted to give this field more depth. Assignments include Surgeon/Nurse, Long Term Caregiver, and Physical Therapist. We felt these three need to be covered first. Now you can be more than just “the doctor” character; now you have a wider range of choices. There are many other medical possibilities that we may explore in the future.

Next up is the Athlete. Whenever I thought of being a retired sports professional, I looked to see if there was anything similar in the main rulebook and was surprised to see there was not. The Entertainer assignment Performer is supposed to cover this, but it also covers actor, dancer, and acrobat. The experiences of these are very different, and each should have their own career. So we decided to do exactly that, starting with sports. Naturally, we can’t cover every individual sport as an assignment especially since it is a big galaxy, and they will have sports in the future we haven’t conceived of yet. So we decided to cover this in three groups: Electronic Sports, Physical Sports, and Vehicle Sports. The first covers playing video or (more likely in the future) holographic games. E-sports are big today and will only get more popular in the future. Physical Sports covers everything from football and basketball to ninja warrior to the lumberjack games. Sports like Formula 1 and NASCAR where you are either in or on a fast moving machine and race to the finish or otherwise complete for points are all covered by Vehicle Sports.

We have three more careers to tell you about. Stay tuned for more.
