I know that I haven’t posted much for Traveller lately. Have no fear my gamer friends, JBE is still very much creating material for this fun game. Take today’s blog post for example. I was trying to think of something really out there for a Traveller vehicle when it came to me, a mining vehicle that swims lava seas. Setting it near the Solomani Worlds means that calling it the Io Swimmer… 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

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

Previously, we talked about ways for a Traveller crew can transport cargo in the Solomani Rim. Point number 1 was to be a subcontractor. To be a subcontractor, you first need larger corporations from which to contract from. So we’re going to share with you some companies from which you can get a cargo run. Today we’re going to share with you a corporation you can use in your game. DuWayne Cargo… Read More

Games in the Solomani Rim are in a much more civilized region of space than the Spinward Marches. As such, games have less of a rough and tumble feel to them. Or do they? Here are three ways to run mercenary campaigns in the Solomani Rim. 1) Corporate Wars Just because the governments in this region of space are peaceful doesn’t mean that the corporations are. Imagine McClown’s Restaurant blockading Burger Emperor’s… 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

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
