Another Bundle offer - Traveller Imperium Tour

 Another offer of the first really successful SF RPG, Traveller, with some material that I don't think has been on offer in these bundles previously. This is the original version, with the Imperium at its height and the original rules set.


The Traveller Book roleplaying game core rulebookThis Classic Traveller Imperium Tour offer takes customers on a grand journey across the sprawling galactic empire of Traveller, the original SFRPG. In the 1980s Game Designers' Workshop brought forth a, what's the word, stellar array of rulebooks and supplements that tour the 11,000 worlds and the 1,100-year history of the Third Imperium. This new offer presents a huge assortment of rules, settings, and scenarios -- everything you need for your own High Passage through this much-loved space-opera setting.

We provide each title complete in .PDF. Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these ebooks have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their devices. (By publisher request, the DriveThruRPG versions of these files are inobtrusively watermarked.)

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's pandemic-related charity,Direct Relief. Direct Relief sends 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.

Classic Traveller K-kree Alien ModuleThe total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$219. Customers who pay just US$14.95 get all eleven titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $69) as DRM-free ebooks, including the brand-new Classic Traveller Facsimile Edition (retail price $4) -- a "Little White Book" that reproduces the 1981 rulebooks in pristine new scans with errata corrected; two landmark 1983 releases, The Traveller Book and The Traveller Adventure(retail $20 apiece); six sets of starship plans (total retail $20) by longtime Traveller developer Loren Wiseman(1951-2017) -- 20-ton Launch30-ton Slow Boat 30-ton Ship's Boat40-ton Pinnace40-ton Slow Pinnace, and 600-ton Subsidized LinerSupplement S12 Forms and Charts (retail $4); and the Classic Traveller Orientation Pack, a collection of resources originally compiled for the February 2014 Classic Traveller Bundle of Holding.

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $29.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with thirteen more titles worth an additional $150, including all eight Alien Modules ($10 apiece) -- AslanK'kreeVargrZhodaniDroyneSolomaniHivers, and Darrians -- and all five 1980s M-series guides to the Imperium: Tarsus (retail $20), Beltstrike (retail $20), The Spinward Marches Campaign (retail $10), Atlas of the Imperium (plus the Enhanced Edition 2016; retail $10), and Alien Realms (retail $10).

These files are .PDF image scans of the original 1980s hardcopies. All are of good quality with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) applied; text is crisp and copyable. Some covers show slight wearing. The Traveller Book and Adventure, Forms and Charts, The Spinward Marches Campaign, and the first Atlas of the Imperium previously appeared in our February 2014 Classic Traveller Bundle. Tarsus was in the August 2014 Starter Traveller offer.

I already own a lot of this in dead tree format, but this offer will fill in a few gaps. If you don't know Traveller you really ought to - it's pretty much where all SF RPGs have come from, and handles the epic scale of a BIG galaxy better than most of its successors. There are weaknesses, of course, given its age, but it holds up better than most of the other vintage RPGs, and still packs a lot of entertainment value.
