Discover 5 New Careers for your Traveller Game

Even the Emperor of the Imperium has a Past.

Whether it’s someone who pushes the boundaries of known space or an average citizen waiting tables, every Traveller brings different experiences to their adventures. Now you can bring to life new and varied characters for your Traveller game with Foreven Worlds: Careers Beyond the Claw! This supplement adds five new careers perfect for your game, whether in the lawless region past the Imperial border or well within its safer boundaries. Each new career features a D66 list of events, offering more replay value and new surprises.

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: 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.

Traveller: A Universe of Monsters

Foreven Worlds Creatures of Distant WorldsNow that tax day as well as a few personal days is behind us, I am getting back into the groove of working on at JBE full time again. Today I am sharing with you something I wanted to post right when the book first came out. Today I am sharing with you the full table of contents of the Foreven Worlds: Creatures of Distant Worlds so you can get an idea of exactly what you are getting with this book.

This book has more than 60 monsters for your Traveller game, yet it has only 17 monster entries (18, if you count the benchmark appendix). How did we do that? We have more than one monster per entry. Some of these monsters have young, adult, and elder version of these creatures. Others have completely different creatures under the headings. Take spiders for example. We have stalking spiders and web spinners as well as giant version of each. Imagine a spider that can take 105 damage! I know I don’t want to, but it is the book. How about psionic plants. We have pyroplants, siren plants and telekinetic plants. That is not something you see every day on planet Earth. How crazy do our monsters get? How about a blog of living magma? Is that crazy enough for you?

Are you looking for a pet? I would recommend one of 5 varieties of dogs we have in the book over the three varieties of gorallians or psirats we present you. Snake fans may enjoy the young sand cobra but by the time it grows into a terror sand cobra, they may consider releasing it to the wild. A shock lizard may make a fun pet, but I would not let a giant shock lizard near the electronics. All of the creatures in this book can be found above.

Traveller: Unleash the Creatures of Distant Worlds Upon Your Game

Beyond the Imperium, unknown creatures await unwitting explorers. Even in established civilizations, devious politicians and gangsters keep dangerous pets to show off their status. On frontier outposts, scarcely documented plants and animals attack any who threaten their habitats and food sources. With Foreven Worlds: Creatures of Distant Worlds, you’ll have a new monster to throw at your players no matter where they go.

This 29-page book features more than 60 new creature stat blocks. These include:

  • 4 varieties of ants, from swarms of tiny creatures you can stomp with your boot to enormous specimens able to devour entire buildings
  • 3 varieties of mutated canines called devil dogs, known for their mean disposition and terrible bite
  • Blob creatures that can cause significant damage even to ships, such as magmites and space oozes
  • Psionic plants and animals that coordinate their attacks and lure their prey to their doom
  • Expanded traits and numerous benchmark creatures which enable you to create your own native flora and fauna for your games.

Traveller: Pyroplants

Next week sees the release of our long awaited book Foreven Worlds: Creatures of Distant Worlds. This 29-page book of monster for you to shoot up turned out exceptionally well and we are truly proud of it. We hope that you enjoy the creatures inside this book as much as we loved creating them for you. I personally consider myself first and foremost a monster creator so this was a labor of love above anything else.

We have showed off the various monsters inside this book during its creation including ants, magmites, psirats, and spiders. Today, I want to share with you one that had quite a bit of fun inflicting on some poor unsuspecting players: a pyroplant. When you start igniting without an obvious source, words that I cannot repeat in this blog post get said. Watching their reactions is fun as hell.

Grab the Foreven Worlds: Creatures of Distant Worlds, available now at DriveThruRPG, and let us know how much you enjoy these creatures in your game.

The Fessor Cargo-class Multipurpose Ship can be altered with a moment’s notice to fit the mission.

If you never know what kind of day you are going to have, this is the ship you need. Now your Travellers can upgrade their game in the Original Traveller Universe beyond the Imperial borders. In the Foreven Worlds, no two days are ever the same—so grab a ship that is as adaptable as you are!

Traveller: Psirat

If you thought rats were difficult to kill without of a rat trap, imagine one that can talk to others of its kind telepathically. It can be a look out, warn others of impending danger, call for help, and much more. Larger, more powerful psirats can even detect the thoughts of other creatures, warning them to active dangers instead of merely potential threats. Nuisance does not even begin to cover these creatures. This is just one creature in the upcoming Traveller RPG book Foreven Worlds: Creatures of Distant Worlds.

Before the share with you the weakest of the psirats, let me just mention that you can find all of Jon Brazer Enterprises’ Traveller books and PDFs at DriveThruRPG, including the D66 Compendium 2, available now at 25% off the regular price. Download it now while this sale is going on.
