In our last blog post in the Modding Traveller series, we talked about Stressing your character to give them a success after they failed a roll. But how do they get rid of that Stress point? After all, it gives you a DM penalty to every roll after that one you needed to succeed. Well, you have to indulge in some Vice of yours. What is a Vice? It is something that… Read More

I have played a whole lot of role-playing games. Everyone has something I love about them and something I don’t. Traveller is a great example of this. If I want a game without a thousand one little ways to change the outcome of a situation, Traveller is my go-to game. However, there are times when I really would like some way to change that blasted natural-2 die roll. Enter the Stress system…. Read More

Recently I asked on various Traveller forums what kinds of products do people want to see for the Solomani Worlds region. One of the responses asked for a reason to care about the children of Earth that turned Space Nazis. A solid challenge and one that needs to be addressed. So a good place to start with that is a blog post highlighting three misconceptions of our far-future descendants. Add these to… Read More

Fans of any RPG system other than D&D and Pathfinder can have a tough time finding each other. Most often you have to convince your D&D/Pathfinder group to try something different. Maybe it works out, maybe it doesn’t. However, I encourage all gamers of smaller games to play online, especially over Fantasy Grounds. Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds are excellent platforms for playing games with those already interested in the same game so… Read More

A Cluster of Danger and Opportunity Born from the same nebula, these Imperial-ruled systems border Solomani space. Here, tensions between the Solomani Party and the Imperial government constantly threaten trouble. Caught between are the aliens and ordinary citizens just trying to make a better life for themselves. Travellers fly their missions amid these struggles, delivering cargo and helping people along the way. Tell stories you never could before with the Solomani Worlds:… Read More

When it comes to Traveller, I love maps as much as the next person. Just looking at TravellerMap.com can be mesmerizing. The sheer quantity of information available there is just astounding. There are other resources for planetary maps of main Traveller worlds and generators and they are all great, but the one thing I am no seeing much of (and I admit, it may be out there and I just don’t know… Read More

As we’re working on the Book of Beasts: Slayer Codex, I keep thinking about the next project. To the completely honest, the next one is going to be the Solomani Worlds: Kurland Cluster for Traveller since that has been sent off to the editors, and we’re hard at work on the Book of Beasts: Arcanist Codex so that won’t be long behind. Then there’s an unnamed 13th Age project we’re not ready… Read More

I recently played Pathfinder 2e and picked up the Core Rulebook and Bestiary. I mentioned this in the Fans of Jon Brazer Enterprises Facebook Group and someone mentioned that the RPG market is oversaturated. I’ve heard this argument before, but this time it got me thinking. Sure the businessperson in me says that the law of supply and demand should end games without sufficient demand, but a different thought in my head… Read More
