Traveller: See the Galaxy in the Galleon Megatanker

Providing fuel to the most dangerous parts of space, the Galleon-class megatanker can bring fuel almost anywhere. This enormous 3,500-ton tanker can skim fuel off of gas giants and process it for use or sale. Whether performing regular fuel runs for in-system use or taking it to systems without their own source of fuel, this ship can handle the job. With room for passengers, this ship can take your Travellers where they need to go and help repel invaders. Now your Travellers can upgrade their game in the Original Traveller Universe beyond the Imperial borders. In the Foreven Worlds, everyone still needs fuel, and this ship can provide it, even in the space between systems!

This 10-page PDF includes details on this massive ship, the ship map giving you a feel for the overall design, and two zoomed maps providing ease of readability.

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.

Give your players a new challenge today!

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.

Traveller: Change Up Your Adventures with Fessor Cargo

The Fessor Cargo-class Multipurpose Ship can be altered with a moment’s notice to fit the mission. Whether you’re making a heavy short-ranged cargo run or a light multi-jump trip, providing medical assistance to remote locations, doing some asteroid mining to turn a profit, or taking on additional passengers, this ship can change its configuration every time it leaves the spaceport. 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.

Traveller: The Reidian Flyer Blasts into your Game

The Reidian Flyer-class Blockade Runner punches through enemy forces and orbital defenses with amazing speed. This starcraft outstrips missiles and quickly flies out of range of anything pursuing it. Now your Travellers can upgrade their game in the Original Traveller Universe beyond the Imperial borders. In the Foreven Worlds, danger lurks behind every asteroid—arm yourself well and live to make a cargo run another day!

This includes a 6-page PDF with full details about the ship and an 18″ x 12″ poster for you to print and hang on your wall.

Traveller: Reidian Flyer Poster

Whenever I play Traveller, I like to have the ship my players are in in a large format hanging on a wall for quick reference so they can see it in full detail. So when I set up to do the single ships for Traveller, I decided to include a poster map of the ships with its specs and an external picture. Having this helps to immerse my players in the universe of Traveller that much more at the start of every game session. We did this with the Gannet that we produced last year and we are doing this again for the Reidian Flyer.

The Reidian Flyer, incase you do not follow all the sneak peeks I post to Twitter or Facebook, is a blockade runner. What would normally be over a hundred tons cargo space is taken up with a high burn thruster reaction fuel. When the high burn and the standard gravitic drive are engaged at the same time, it produces a a full 11G of thrust, allowing the ship to pull away from pursuing missiles and get away from attacking ships. Whether your characters are passengers or in command of a Reidian Flyer, they can expect a bumpy ride while they are being shot at.

Download the Reidian Flyer when it is released and be sure to check out all of JBE’s other Mongoose Traveller 2e releases exclusively at DriveThruRPG.

The Big Meeting

There have been quite a good many decisions that needed to be made concerning the direction of JBE for the next few months. Yesterday, I decided that we needed a company-wide meeting to resolve them. That happened this morning. Here are the results:

  1. Focus on Fifth Edition, Traveller, and 13th Age for the next few months. This is to clear out the backlog of stuff we wanted to publish last year but didn’t because official Pathfinder support is ending. We have plans to continue supporting these games after the backlog is complete. We discussed adventures for Traveller and 5e, ships and monsters for Traveller, subclasses and more for 5e, and a PHB2-like print book for 13th Age.
  2. No final decision on Pathfinder 2e support. We are waiting to see the final rules and license before making a determination on that front.
  3. Continued support of Pathfinder 1e. That is right, JBE will continue with PFRPG 1e. We do not have anything ready to go immediately so do not expect to see anything from us before summer, but we love this game and will continue to support it and its fans. How this will interact with possible PF2 support is yet to be determined.

We are really excited about all of this and hope that you are on board as well. Tell us your thoughts and what you want to see from us in the comments below.
