Subsector Sourcebook 2: Franklin
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 11/13/2014 08:25:12

This work presents a fully-developed sub-sector in a travelogue style, providing plenty of places for the party to visit in pursuit of adventure, profit or whatever it is that they are after. Franklin is designed as a sub-sector of the Clement Sector, the 'home' of Gypsy Knights Games's product line, their alternate Traveller universe, but it's possible to place it wherever you want it in your Traveller universe instead. Some of the inhabited planets originally appeared in their 'Quick Worlds' series, but have been subsequently modified here, others are brand new.


First up is a sub-sector map accompanied by each system's UWP in a table and an overview of the sub-sector as a whole, followed by a detailed system-by-system description of what you'll find here. The inhabited systems in this sub-sector are quite scattered and operate as independent rather than belonging to any wider association.


Each system is presented in a standard format, beginning with an overview of the system, in words and pictorially, before moving on to physical data of the inhabited world that is probably of most interest. Size, atmosphere, hydrography, geography... then moving on to population, government, law (look out for ways to trap unwary characters!) and cultural details. Grey boxes are scattered everywhere with 'behind the curtain' comments about design or straight-out adventure ideas you can use on that particular planet. There's a map of the world showing major features, notes on the main settlements, even details of calendars, festivals and port facilities - everything, in short, that a visitor might need to know.


The inhabited worlds are quite varied in nature and most sound like they'd be interesting to visit. Some have exotic wildlife, spectacular scenery or unusual customs which might prove an attraction, as well as trading opportunities or potential contracts for mercenary groups. Perhaps you'd like to visit a desert world with a participatory democracy that can have everyone at the polls several times a day, or a world of great cliffs with jungles below in which dinosaur-like creatures are to be found.


Overall, the Franklin sub-sector is a fascinating place to visit replete with opportunities for adventure, adventures that are embedded in the very nature of the worlds on which they take place. Well worth a visit...

Subsector Sourcebook 1: Cascadia
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 11/12/2014 08:09:38

This work provides a detailed overview of the Cascadia sub-sector which is intended as part of the alternate Traveller universe setting Clement Sector... but of course it can be transplanted to wherever you want to put it in YOUR Traveller universe! Some of the worlds described here have already appeared in Gypsy Knights Games's "Quick Worlds" series, but they have been rewritten and tied more closely to the Clement Sector story. Others are brand new.


Starting with a sub-sector map and overview, we read that there are twenty inhabited solar systems here. Most are in loose clusters of worlds in adjacent hexes, but some are more remote. All are independent although those close together may have formed some kind of loose association with one another.


We then move on to the systems themselves. Beginning with a system overview, the physical, atmospheric and hydrographical details for the main inhabited world are given. The geography is described along with a small map of the planet. Then we get to more social aspects such as population distribution, government, notable laws and local culture. It's the sort of detail that an intending visitor would find helpful and can be built upon readily when the party has reason to land there. Or indeed if a character chooses that planet as their homeworld.


The worlds are quite different in style, varying from dictatorships to democracies. Laws regarding weapons possession/use and attitudes to alcohol and other drugs are made clear... plenty of opportunity to have a run-in with the average gun-toting thirsty character if they do not abide by local requirements! Some of the restrictions can be unusual - there's even a planet where sugar is forbidden, never mind more dubious substances such as coffee or booze. On some worlds, surveillance of everyday life is routine and accepted, on others individual freedom is a precious thing. Religion can be all-pervasive, or a matter for individual belief. There's even a 'company world' completely owned by a brewing company - this is one place where the consumption of alcohol is not only permitted but encouraged, during off-duty hours at least!


There's plenty of scope for adventure here, with a fascinating variety of worlds to visit. The overall impression is of a sub-sector populated by distinctive worlds each busy about its own pursuits, never mind whither the party goes there or not, a convincing 'alternate reality' feel that makes it all the more interesting.

Clement Sector
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 11/11/2014 08:00:21

This book presents an 'alternate' Traveller Universe setting, the one in which Gypsy Knights Games's material is set. It's an area of space on the far side of the galaxy from Earth, reached at least initially via a worm hole. The year is 2342, which makes the setting somewhat closer to 2300AD than most conventional Traveller settings. One of the chief differences is that the people you encounter still often feel connections and trace their roots back to a particular part of Earth.


There's a lot to take in, beginning with the history of the Sector starting with the middle of the 21st century and explaining how the peoples of Earth explored first their own solar system and then went further afield, spurred on by the development of the Zimm Drive, which is based on quantum entanglement. In a way this is a primitive 'Jump Drive', taking ships out of normal space for a period of time and reinserting them a considerable distance away, some 2 parsecs, and leading to the colonisation of several relatively local star systems... and eventually to the discovery of the worm hole that led to the worlds of the Clement Sector. Over the next couple of centuries the area began to be explored and colonies established on suitable planets... and then one day the worm hole collapsed. The people in Clement Sector were now on their own.


This then leads into a detailed gazetteer of the entire sector, with charts and descriptions of every system, colonised or not. There's a lot of relatively unexplored real estate out there if exploration and colonisation interests you. For those areas which have been colonised, more copious details are found in the relevant sourcebook in this series, although there are brief notes here.


Next comes a section on character generation. One thing to note is that, apart from one called the Hub Federation, there are no interstellar governments - so anyone wanting to have government employment (including military service) in their background needs to decide which government they worked for! Most of the regular Traveller careers are available in some form, however. It is useful to determine a homeworld, and there are tables to do this if you prefer it to be random rather by choice. Earth is included, as the worm hole did not collapse that long ago! This leads in to the allocation of background skills, including a range of survival skills depending on the sort of world the character grew up on.


For those wishing to enter the service of the Hub Federation there are notes on careers in the Navy (more details of this and other Hub Federation-specific careers are in the relevant sourcebooks), and there is also the option of entering the Cascadia Colonisation Authority. Otherwise, you can use most anything in the main Traveller rulebook. Another option is the Colonist career. Background information is provided to set the scene for these new careers.


Next come sections on technology and equipment, which are naturally somewhat different from standard Traveller although there is plenty of overlap and scope for using regular items in your game. Tech levels are generally around 10-11 with a cap at 12. This leads into starship design along with several specimens you can use, complete with illustrations, game statistics and plans.


Once we have the ships, there follows a section on starship operation, looking at everything from making a landing planetside to travelling across the sector. The discussion is wide-ranging, dealing with matters such as time and currency on the worlds you might visit as well as the nuts and bolts of using the Zimm drive to get around. Refuelling and piracy are also covered.


The next section looks at some of the larger and more significant corporations that may be encountered, names in the news, employers, suppliers, whatever interaction becomes necessary. There are plenty of plot seeds if you read the notes on each one carefully! Several organisations are given similar treatment (including a helpful bunch called the Gypsy Knights with a strangely familiar logo!).


The book ends with discussions on politics, religion and aliens. The politics in particular is expanded upon in other sourcebooks but it is a useful overview, particularly for those of worlds other than the ones you come from or know well. Finally there are suggestions for the type(s) of campaign you may wish to run in the Clement Sector... there's wide scope here for whatever you might have in mind.


This is a beautifully-constructed and fascinating corner of space which is well worth exploring!

Ships of Clement Sector 5: Traders and Scouts
by Michael S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/17/2014 05:28:10

Another excellent book from GK!


Immediately after flicking through this book for the first time, I wanted to start new campaigns with each of these new ships - I even bought the Beltstrike adventure book in order to learn more about belting, to see how the Goldrush could be used.


The seven ships introduced in this book are all useable in one way or another. Depending on the campaign played some could work perfect as PC vessel, and others are great as encounters or just in the background to make the universe more varied.


The Starlight is a perfect starting ship for a small group of players, (almost) regardless of the type of game being played. Small, reasonably affordable, with a little space for cargo and passengers.


The Palomino Runabout fells more like a sports car in space, at least to me. It can take its owner/crew/the player(s) where they need to go, and in comfort, but you won't be hauling cargo or shuttling passengers with it. As a courier, executive transport, mini-yacht or simply a personal transport (for bounty hunters, VIPs, or players wishing to travel in style for example) though, it will get the job done! (Plus it looks good too) It does have an air raft hangar for planetary travel, and I do like that it has stairs between the cockpit and main deck. Practical? Maybe, maybe not, but I personally like the design touch. Only minor nitpick is that the flavor text says unarmored but it does have 4 points of crystaliron.


The Billings class free trader is just what it sound like. It has room for both passengers and cargo, and with jump 2 it's a viable alternative to the Far Trader from the main book, a design I've never quite liked personally. More expensive, but you also get more for your money.


Next up, the Goldrush, a 200 dT FTL capable belting ship. A home away from home, a base for belting operations. The upper deck is for living, with state rooms, common room and med bay. The lower deck has a cutter hangar and two cargo holds. In order to use this ship to its fullest, it's recommended to install a belting module in the cutter (available in Clement Book 4 - Small Craft). For those that do not want to play a belting campaign the ship would make an interresting encounter, perhaps the players find one out in deep space, adrift, or they work aboard one at the beginning of a campaign, before being abducted by pirates and forced into a life of looting and plunder...


The Explorer class long range scout would fit equally well for a scout-based campaign that wants something new, or as a larger (400 dT) ship for almost any group of players. With the right weapons it could work as a light warship, or courier duty, PC transport/home base and so on. Due to the way Zimm drives work within the Clement setting, long range does not mean jump 3+, but rather that it does have fuel for 2x 2 parsec jumps without refuelling.


The Nigaloo can also be used for scout games, or exploration. Think scout meets lab ship, with a touch of adventuring. It looks like a stretched Goldrush, and has lots of room for crew and mission staff. The labs can, of course, be converted into storage if a group of players wants to play different kinds of games. It has hangar space for a 30 dT boat, and a vehicle garage for ATV and air raft, and like the Explorer it has fuel for 2x jumps. The sensors are very advanced, and it looks and sounds perfect for expeditions and players wanting a bit more flexibility than offered among the smaller vessels in the game. And as I type this I realise that a Nigaloo can easily be converted into a great mercenary or pirate vessel...


Finally, there's the Dromedary class tanker. Perhaps not the most exciting ship for players to work on, but a very welcome sight when the fuel runs low! They could be used as encounters, escort quests or merely to populate the universe with more diverse ships.


To me, GK Games ship designs have always felt believable, thought through and 'realistic' and the ones in this book are no exceptions. Great work, keep it up!

Ships of Clement Sector 5: Traders and Scouts
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 08/15/2014 07:21:16

Containing a full seven different starship designs within the category of Traders and Scouts, this is a good place to look if you intend the party to be operating their own vessel.


The first is a smallish trading vessel, just the right size for an adventuring party! Described in the 'as-real' pseudohistorical tone used by Gypsy Knights in most of their material, it is presented complete with illustrations and deckplans as well as full statistics.


Next up is the Palomino-class runabout, an historic design that was never a great success in its original incarnation but which is now enjoying a considerable revival amongst those who want a small craft to transport up to four people (although it can be flown solo in a pinch).


Then there's a larger vessel, a real workhorse of the starways called a Billings-class Free Trader. It needs a crew of five (but has room for more), and can carry ten passengers (and a further ten in cold sleep) in some degree of comfort. The crew and passenger areas are separate, each with their own common area, and there is ample space for cargo as well.


A Goldrush-class belter ship, a very self-reliant craft, an Explorer-class Type LS Long Range Scout and a Ningaloo-class Survey and Exploration ship follow; each fully-detailed with text descriptions, deck plans and statistics and all well-suited to their stated roles. The last has space for scientists, lab space and a magnificent sensor suite.


Finally there's the Dromedary-class Tanker. Big and a bit lumbering, it's designed to deliver fuel supplies to ships and stations out in the black.


As well as all the details provided for each vessel, there are bits of atmospheric fiction and numerous illustrations to set the scene. I'm fond of having a wide variety of ships plying the spaceways in my universe and these will soon be making an appearance.

21 More Organizations
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 06/30/2014 09:08:18

It's all part of bringing the Far Future to life... your Traveller universe needs to be teeming with people, ships and, yes, organisations with whom the party can interact. Such interactions can include joining the organisation, working for it on a casual basis, engaging in commerce with it, working against it or in association with it - or merely meeting a few members of it in a bar for a beer or a brawl.


Designing them all takes time and effort, so here are 21 more organisations to stir into the mix. Whilst many are quite closely linked with planets within the Clement Sector where Gypsy Knights Games material is centred, much could be transplanted to another suitable location... or of course, they may come from Clement but for some reason are being encounted somewhere else.


First up is Alpha Delta Force, an all-female paramilitary group which operates in a jungle area on the planet Tel'Kalares. They mount patrols, conduct research on what they find - both indigenous flora and fauna and any alien artefacts they come across - and have an enforcement arm which prevents unauthorised activity in 'their' jungles. There's full details on serving in it as a career, whether you need to generate Alpha Delta personnel as NPCs or incorporate it into a character background.


Then there's the Crawford Foundation, a massive charitable trust which aids research in science and medicine, supports universities and donates to political parties on the planet Boone and throughout Clement Sector, particularly on those colonies who trace their antecedents and heritage back to the US. Or maybe the Hard Chargers Spaceship Club, a bunch who spend their days travelling from one system to another and are not above the odd spot of criminal activity, seem more likely associates for your party.


Another organisation is Harbringer Productions, a holovid production company. Got any budding actors amongst your party? Or is someone starstruck over a character in their favourite show? Plenty of plot potential here. Knowing most Traveller groups, they might meet with the Cascadia Fugitive Marshals Service who are part of Cascadia's law enforcement apparatus but operate with the casual enthusiasm and disregard for planetry sovereignty of bounty hunters. Those on the right side of the law might enjoy working for them, of course. With this in mind, full career tables are provided for them as well.


If you feel in need of protection as you travel, you might wish to engage the services of the Reliable Starship Escort Service. Or you may run foul of the Smithson Crime Family, who are based on Cascadia and no doubt know the Cascadia Fugitive Marshals Service quite well! Perhaps you will meet operatives of Ministry 7, but as this is a clandestine intelligence agency you may well not be aware that you have...


And then there's the Society of Friendship, who operate a service somewhere between traditional geishas and call girls. The wealthy may hire a 'friendship artisan' as an escort to a function or a companion, or for various services of a personal nature. If your need is for weapons rather than companionship, maybe you will seek out Cutov Arms. Or you may be intrigued by the work of Intelligence Now!, a group which works to promote uplift of animals to sentience. And there's the Xenogastronomy League, the brainchild of a starshop cook fascinated by discovering how to cook the flora and fauna of every new planet he visited (sounds like several of my characters...). Then there's a group of religious craftsmen called the Children of the Father or a rather less pleasant bunch, the Council of Altrant Supremacists.... and several more groups who all add to the rich tapestry of life.


Revel in these, add them to your setting and mine their activities for adventure ideas. An excellent collection, just reading through them spawns ideas.

Ships of Clement Sector 4: Small Craft
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 05/22/2014 09:21:10

Having that sniny new starship is all very well, but when you arrive on orbit you need something to get planetside, not to mention that it's overkill for an in-system jaunt.


So here is a mammoth collection of all those really useful but often unsung small space-worthy craft all ready for when the party (or NPCs for that matter) might need one. Each vessel comes with background text about what they are used for and what they look like, along with full game stats, sketches and deckplans.


First up are those useful little craft you might find buzzing around a space station or orbital facility - the ubiqitous work pod. These can be used for a multiplicity of tasks from maintenance to courier work, construction and even personnel transfer over short distances.


Then there are a whole bunch of other craft: fighters, launches and ship's boats. There's even an Admiral's Barge for those VIP transfers and visits... and ones set up as boarding craft for even more unwelcome visitations. Some craft are armed, some are modular and can have the 'payload' area reconfigured depending on your needs - troop transport or medical transport or even an in-system research or mining vessel (asteroid archaeology, anyone?).


Interspersed with the small craft details are pieces of atmospheric fiction describing typical uses of some of the vessels described. There's also a small craft design sequence, maintaining the tradition of Traveller 'gearheads' who derive as much pleasure from designing stuff as from playing the game.


If you like your space to be buzzing with all manner of vessels, this is one to add to your bookshelf.

21 Plots: Samaritan
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 05/07/2014 10:22:01

Here's another collection of plot outlines, this time linked by the common theme of the Patron needing help. Well, all Patrons need the party's help, that's why they hire them, but in these cases it is the more traditional use of the word 'help' - someone who actually needs (or appears to need) assistance.


Presented in conventional style for Traveller, each outline is given as it appears to the characters coupled with six possible outcomes/developments. The Referee can choose the one which appeals most, or roll a d6. These outcomes vary widely from 'Just as it appears' to something completely different.


Possible adventures range from rescuing kidnap victims to dealing with outbreaks of disease and helping spacefarers in distress... a real range of different situations. There's even a missing cat to find! Any or all of them should provide for an entertaining episode in an ongoing campaign. Many of the outcomes give suggestions as to future ramifications, generally gaining a contact or an enemy from amongst the involved parties.


Some of the situations make reference to various worlds within Gypsy Knights's published Clement Sector, but if you are not using that it will be easy enough to pick suitable worlds within your own campaign. Indeed, if your players are inconsiderate enough not to go to the 'right' world in the Clement Sector, again you could change to a more appropriate one if that's the adventure you want to run.


Overall, a fine collection of plots in true Traveller tradition.

Peel Colonies

Welcome to the frontier. GKG is taking a stab at one of Traveller's earliest motifs - travel and see unknown worlds. Behind a fantastic cover - we get new worlds. Not cookie cutter worlds but worlds that are realistic and gritty. Tied closely to the Clement Sector but with a dash of imagination can take you to any SFRPG universe. They are clearly grounded in the Hard SF tradition - Space Opera lovers might find something here. But, it is clearly more Star Trek than Star Wars. The lower rating is the feeling that there should be more that is uncovered in terms of mysteries - maybe that is the realm of adventures - but I do feel worlds should have multiple enigmas and adventures are there to play within those locales or to solve the mysteries -- however the setup for the enigma should take place in the world splatbook. Maybe, your opinion is different... however, these are certainly worth one's money. Keep up the excellent work GKG!

Quick Worlds 26: Winston
by Mysterious B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/10/2014 12:23:12

A world of the frontier. GKG is moving from High Space Opera to a game of exploration and the unknown. In some of the best detailed worlds - we get another in the form of Winston. While there is a certain vibe associated with with the Clement Sector - this world could be plunked down almost anywhere in a Traveller or SFRPG universe. For GKG is committed to building better worlds - this product shows a refinement of their thinking. They have moved from clone worlds (generic worlds albeit with some interesting attributes -- yes, I am looking at you Slaren or Chance) to building incredibly detailed geographies. If this product is missing something - it is a biosphere - however, I speculate that a Bestiary of the Clement Sector and beyond is in the works. Granted it is hard to a biosphere not to look like a Monster Manual but at the same time as the campaign advances us from the closure of the conduit and into unknown space - beasties - short & nasty and large & lumbering are bound to make their appearance. Look forward to seeing more brave new worlds, when no woman or man has gone before. Keep up the excellent work!

Ships of Clement Sector 3: Moltke
by Mysterious B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/10/2014 12:16:05

Yet another, deckplan book --- almost, meh...as Mongoose keeps turning these things out. But, wait this is an extraordinary ship with amazing details. Furthermore, it contains phenomenal art by the incredibly talented Ian Stead - back when deckplans were re-invented by Mongoose. I was incredibly excited. But, as ship began to resemble another ship...my frustration. GKG must have heard my sighs and moans - for they have created a phenomenal traveller ship not seen the likes of CT FASA Traveller deckplans - and even those - the best illustrations were on blueprint sized boxes. Kudos to GKG for creating a truly beautiful looking ship and interesting capacities that I want to plunk into My Traveller Universe - right now! Wait, there is more, the deckplans come with mock recruitment posters in English and German! (although, why there are beefeater hats in the future...when berets seem more practical in a zero-g setting). And, the best part - purple pose...I love when there is a bit of narrative that gets me in the mood of events as they unfold. Too much of Traveller has been about Tables & Charts and deckplans - GKG combines the best of both worlds -- keep this high standard -- please. If you are looking for a cool ship - this is it. Criticism: well some of the renderings could have been done two per page as there are some small areas or additional craft that leave lots of white space - might save on toner but looks odd.

Quick Worlds 26: Winston
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/05/2014 11:48:00

Located in a quiet corner of Gypsy Knights Games's Clement Sector, Winston is a ice-bound world in an otherwise uninhabited system. Indeed it is only marginally habitable, with an atmosphere that requires a filter mask as well as being on the chilly side of cold.


Some 88% of the world is ocean, but an ocean completely covered by sheet ice. It thins a bit in places, but never enough to actually leave the ocean open to the air although these so-called 'blue spots' do allow for photosynthesis by aquatic life. Four major landmasses (and a few minor ones) poke through the ice, however, and this is where settlements are to be found... even though they too are inhospitable with glaciers, rocky landscapes and active volcanoes to contend with.


Rather surprisingly, over four million people have settled here in the 40 years since Winston was first colonised, initially following the promise of rich mining. Indeed the first settlements were sponsored by mining companies. Following the collapse of the mining companies, a weak democracy was overthrown by the last president declaring himself king. His son was less successful at ruling than he was, and a civil war ensued. The leader of the strongest armed group involved in the war has recently placed herself on the throne.


The rule of General Mary Webster is quite strict and completely despotic, yet she is hailed as more fair than her predecessors. Visitors to the planet need to be aware that firearms are prohibited and visas are needed to travel outside of the downport areas. Most recreational drugs are also banned apart from alcohol. However, the locals do enjoy playing a game called rugby, and a bizarre event called a tomato hurl. Life otherwise is quite tough, and death is commonplace especially in the government-controlled mines.


Temperatures are low, below freezing even in daytime, so most people live in domed settlements which are maintained at a more amenable temperature. There are three main domed cities which are described in reasonable detail. There is also a section on adventure ideas for this planet... should anyone actually want to go there. Many are based around the harsh regime, involving characters either in supporting roles (perhaps mercenaries hired to train local troops) or mixed up in a rebellion. Other worlds are quite curious and might sponsor a spy mission to find out what's really going on in a difficult-to-access world, whilst merchants will find profit selling off-world products - legal or otherwise - to the natives. If nothing else, they might need to import tomatoes for the tomato hurl.


Never thought so much could happen on a rocky ball of ice? Think again, and visit Winston. Just take care: misbehaviour can lead to imprisonment or even being shot out of hand, and it is said that not everyone survives a gaol term here.

21 Plots: Misbehave
by Mysterious B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/07/2013 15:15:53

Ain't no misbehaving...this is a close as the OGL will allow independents to push the limits. Yes, players can get into all sorts of mischief hooks - and now the Referee can have 21x6 plots. Invaluable as fillers between a campaign or one-shots. They are fleshed out as the setup and the 1D6 possible resolutions. These series are good additions for Referees caught in a pickle - all adventures are set in the Clement Sector which is best described as a Hard Space Opera. Excellent hooks, although, I wish the OGL would be a little bit more lax in allowing publishers to explore the darker realms of Traveller that fanzines long exploited. Come on, Marc - what do you say.


"No."


Thought as much, however, keep up the excellent work, GKG...

Purple pose, intelligent design, nice art art. What is wrong...well it is a single deckplan...plus, I would have expected some adventure seeds and variants of the starship (for all Starships are multipurpose in Traveller - A Scoutship may be pressed into the theater of war or a merchant ship may be tasked to do a survey) - none of these variants are explored. Let us hope when they get compiled into print form that these bells and whistles get added in.
