Another two RPG bundle offers - Traveller Little Black Books

Two revived bundles of GDWs Traveller RPG, collections of the original "Little Black Book" editions of the game from the seventies and eighties. A little dated now, but it's the first popular SF RPG and still very playable:

Traveller LBB-1

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/LBB1-2020

"This is the first of two revivals now in progress of our comprehensive 2015 bundles with the canonical Traveller Little Black Books from the 1970s and '80s. This revived July 2015 Traveller LBB-1 Bundle has a companion Traveller LBB-2 Bundle -- itself revived from December 2015.

Traveller needs no introduction. These "Little Black Books," half-size manuals with elegant black cover designs, introduced the leading SFRPG in its pure original form. The densely packed LBB rulebooks, expansions, supplements, and adventures, all sporting the familar black design, launched thousands of spacefaring campaigns across the star-spanning Imperium. To this day these books represent, in the minds of many old-school roleplayers, the true-blue (true-black?) Traveller experience. Together these two revived offers present the entire LBB line -- more than 50 books for a bargain price. You can have them in any color you want, as long as it's black.

This LBB-1 offers has all eight rulebooks and the major supplements. If you're new to Traveller -- yes, even now there are new-made roleplayers who haven't yet encountered Traveller -- start here. LBB-2 adds nearly three dozen additional supplements and adventures.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their devices.

Ten percent of each purchase of these two Traveller revivals (after gateway fees) goes to their pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$71. Customers who pay just US$6.95 get all nine titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $33) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $14.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with eleven more titles worth an additional $38:

 

Traveller LBB-2

 

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/LBB2-2020

"This LBB-2 Bundle is one of two simultaneous revivals of classic Traveller ebooks from the 1970s and '80s. These books presented the leading SFRPG in its pure original form: the "Little Black Books," half-size manuals with elegant black cover designs. Published by GDW in 1977 (revised 1981), the first three densely packed LBBs launched thousands of spacefaring campaigns across the star-spanning Imperium. Five rules expansions and a trove of supplements and adventures all sported the familar black design.

The other offer in this pair is the revived Traveller LBB-1 Bundle from June 2015. If you're new to Traveller -- welcome to planet Earth! -- start with that offer, which has all eight rulebooks and the major supplements. This LBB-2 companion adds nearly three dozen supplements and adventures.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their devices.

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to these two offers' pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$115. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all seventeen titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $58) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $16.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with eighteen more titles worth an additional $57:

A few Traveller web resources

There are more Traveller pages on the web than worlds in the Spinward Marches. A few starting points:


Between them these two offers contain everything you need to run hundreds of adventures - the main omission is material for military campaigns, the rules for big ship construction, space warfare (apart from small ship combat, which is covered in the core material) and ground warfare, which came along a little later and were mostly in boxed sets with wargames etc.

If you're already familiar with Traveller you probably own most of this stuff, or later versions, or conversions to other systems such as GUPRS Traveller, but if you have somehow never come across the game it's well worth a look, and the price is pretty reasonable.
