Thinking about new careers got me thinking about my last book of careers: Foreven Worlds: Careers Beyond the Claw, specifically the athlete career. I designed it with auto racing in mind, putting a vehicle sports assignment. However, it got me thinking about what other ways the sport could change in the future. Which brings me to drone racing. Similar to how boxing and UFC compare to battle bots, drone racing can be… Read More

I’m looking at producing more careers for Traveller, and I want your take as to whether they are good ideas or not. Vote for the ones you would like to play. Also, be sure to download Foreven Worlds: Careers Beyond the Claw at DriveThruRPG and Fantasy Grounds.

In my home D&D 5e game, I have a rule: if you want something that is not in the books but is reasonable, the answer is, “sure.” Several of my players have taken me up on that so far. One has a longbow that uses Strength instead of Dexterity. Another wields a punching shield as a melee weapon; all I did for that one is take a warhammer and rename it “punching… Read More

Grav belts are a staple of Traveller, but their style is dated, if we are totally honest. They belong in a time where Kyle MacLachlin, Sir Patrick Stewart, Max von Sydow, and company were resisting the bloody Baron Harkonnen. It seems antiquated in a day and age where kids have a wheel in their shoe to skate across the floor or have “hoverboards.” Let’s talk about a few variations that deliver on… Read More

Since my first Traveller game, I’ve heard nothing but jokes about low berth passengers. “Why would anyone take that? You might die.” “It’s the way to go for those that don’t like their lives.” While there is a chance, I no longer think it is the ludicrous option that I use to. Background: for those not familiar, Traveller has a standard mode of transit known as low passage. Here, a person climbs… Read More

It is about this time of year that some GM’s run holiday-themed game sessions. That got me wondering, how many GM’s actually do that? Fantasy or science fiction, it doesn’t matter, holidays work in both. Does your star-travelling furry race celebrate Life Day? Do your dwarves celebrate the freezing of the ground? If you have any stories you’d like to share, the comments section is open to you. So vote in the… Read More

When I first asked there was interest in more detail (and thus interest to run games) in the Solomani Rim sector, a question quickly arose: how do you handle cargo runs in the region? A little background, the Solomani Rim is the home of Earth (Terra) and some of the most civilized and densely populated systems in space. Here megacorps are everywhere and in every aspect of life. Major shipping companies have… Read More
