CT-G00-Traveller- Imperium
by James T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/22/2014 17:42:24

A medium review for this product, generally due to its suitability in recreating the game.

No images for the box are included. This is disappointing for those that want to recreate the set.

The rules are of excellent quality, they are OCR scans of the rules and include the later editions' 'History of the Imperium'.

There are two maps included with the rules that are for reference only, they are unreadable and not suitable for playing on. This is rectified by the inclusion of a second file that contains a higher quality scan of the 1990 map. This scan is playable and readable. Unfortunately, only this one map is included, the second map of 2005, that is included in unreadable form with the rules, is not available in a higher resolution scan.

The tokens are a mix of hit and miss, generally they are usable, however, the low resolution scans make them unsuitable to recreating the board game, and are more suited as a reference to an existing set.

CT-G06- Dark Nebula
by James T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/22/2014 17:16:36

I'll offer a medium review for this product, mostly due to the suitability of the download in recreating the original game.

It is disappointing that the cover image is only some 200x300 pixels and unsuitable for recreating a box for your recreated game. The rules are clear and appear to be without error, rather than image scans, the rules appear to be retyped or OCR scans. The maps themselves, while low resolution, are clear and easy to read. Even the hex numbers are clear enough to read. Only a low score on the quality of the scan of the chits in particular. Blurry and very low resolution, very disappointing for a paid product.

Overall, this version of the game can be used to recreate the game in a basic way, that at minimum is playable. However, the aesthetics of the game if recreated using the components included in this paid download will be disappointing.

TNE-0300 Traveller: The New Era
by Toby D. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/27/2014 01:00:02

This is a scan of the earliest print run of this book. They should really be selling the mark 1 mod 1 version.

TNE-0307 Traveller Referee's Screen

Very disappointing. I mostly purchased this for the included adventure, which was conspicuous by its absence.

Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society. Issue No.1-24
by Mike O. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/24/2014 18:58:26

This is a piece of nostalgia worth buying. if you played Traveller in the original boxed set (ol`grognard edition), you will have probably perused a least one JTAS and enjoyed at least one article or adventure from it. It is a prodigious resource for GMs & players both old & new.

Some of the articles require revising depending on your version being played (I`m using the Mongoose Traveller edition in my campaign) and some articles are outdated or have been surpassed by more modern rule sets (Remember: Traveller has been in one iteration or another since 1977!).

None the less, it still has a cornucopia of adventures, articles, primers, devices, equipment, weapons, ship classes, deck plans, variant rules & more for anyone who plays or GMs this game.

For example, JTAS #1 contains the classic adventure "Ànnic Nova" which has been reprinted as an official Traveller double adventure 1 (which are hard to find). Each subsequent issue of JTAS has a least one adventure (full or seed) to wet the appetite of any GM.

As well, there are new ships or variants to use. A player wanted a more distinct looking scout courier, so I used the Serpent class scout courier (complete with deck plans from JTAS 2.)

All in all, it worth a look at. If anything, it can serve as inspiration for GMs of this RPG.

CT-TTB-The Traveller Book
by Rory H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/10/2014 06:05:17

Some of the ideas and technology within the book has dated, and it could do with more character options to match the variety of later versions. However, all this said, as an example of concise efficacy and innovation, the game remains a true classic.

T5 Imperiallines 06
by Robert J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/23/2014 17:44:13

This is a little pricey for a 15 page PDF but the content is good. I really like the detail about Regina including a world map. If you're a busy referee planet detail is always a time saver. I would be willing to rate this with five stars if it was longer or cost a little less because the content is good.

T2000 v1 Twilight: 2000
by William H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/07/2014 02:08:00

1st Ed T2K - a wonderful, if a bit convoluted, character generation. It provides a bit of backstory (tho' less than Traveller), and gives percentile skills, and provide the appropriate competencies. I originally got this in dead tree back in 1984... and I loved it. It had some convoluted rules for armor and gunfire interaction, but it gave a real feel for the combats. And it made combat undesirable yet fun. The art is mostly pencils derived from army stock photos, and the gear is pretty much bog-standard 1980's issue. (They got the early 90's gear dead on - but by 2000, it was well outdated.) The setting makes a great "what if", but many of the assumptions are now quite wrong. Game needs 4d6 and 2d10. Note that mechanically, this is a precursor to the later GDW House System, but is not part of that system. If you ignore the background, this game can be used for any mid 90's US Army actions one cares to play, and with some careful attention, back to the 'Nam war.

Twilight: 2000 v2.2 [BUNDLE]
by Charles B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2014 16:49:59

Pretty good price to pick up the full Version 2 of the Twilight 2000 RPG collection of books. However, this is missing one Version 2 book and that is the "Infantry Weapons of the World" which isn't carried anyplace else on this website. That is the only book that the DriveThru crew hasn't uploaded for the GDW game system. So you will be forced to use the V1 weapons guide or the guide in the rule book for Version 2 and go from there or you will have to look around on Ebay for an actual physical copy.

Traveller5 Starships & Spacecraft-1 TWO Deck Plan Set For Kickstarter
by Steven R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/13/2014 12:04:20

Nice, clean deck plans of iconic Traveller starships. Having the files provided in large-format sizes is nice for those of us that have access to wide-format printers. The blank plans are great for those of us that want to give our players a not-quite-standard ship for the campaign.

CT- DT-Deluxe Traveller
by Herb S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/08/2014 18:08:21

Excellent product for fans of the classic "Little Black Books" version of Traveller, first released in the late 1970's and updated circa 1980), containing all the rules and frameworks for the "OTU" (Original Traveller Universe) and the large body of supplements, adventures and extensions/modifications that came after. As to the product itself, by and large the scans are excellent. There are a few visual artifacts here and there but they are small and don't hinder readability or accessibility of the materials. Most importantly, the few small smudges or occasional skewed letter do not hinder text-searches through the body of the documents for quick-reference. Frankly, nothing can ever replace paper for the ease of flipping back and forth quickly between sections, but being able to search the PDF files for relevant text makes up for it. And of course, one is always free to print out the documents for personal use if that is your preference. Bear in mind that the documents are watermarked (unobtrusively), to prevent piracy. Given how inexpensive these products are, especially compared to trying to locate and buy vintage originals, there is no excuse not to simply buy these legally now that they are so readily available.

Tl; dr: very good/excellent scans of a GREAT classic space RPG. Highly recommended to old school tabletop gamers as well as newbies looking for something different to try!

Conspiracy Rules!
by Scott M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/12/2014 15:36:42

Amazing update to a cult RPG. I played this in 92 as an introduction to horror gaming and the folks who developed this third edition kept solidly to the spirit of that game and that universe.

Character generation and combat rules are streamlined and much more robust compared with the 2nd edition. The addition of a lot of new weapons (and steadfast attention to editing) makes this a solid improvement over both editions.

This is clearly a subject near and dear to the writers and editors, and a strong fan base supports that.

TNE-0300 Traveller: The New Era
by Mark O. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/25/2013 18:19:32

I remembered playing Traveller in the early 80's with great affection and was so excited to get this and the several other TNE PDFs I bought at the same time, but now I very much regret the purchase.

This has to be one of the worst scans I have ever seen. There are no bookmarks, which is only a minor annoyance, and the text is so blurry it is hardly legible. I gave up trying to read it three pages in because my eyes were watering from the strain of making out the letters.

Unless you already own a physical copy are just looking for a PDF for quick reference do not waste your money on this.

CT-M01-Tarsus
by Robert M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/14/2013 11:32:00

An excellent planet-based scenario for Classic Traveller. Set in a neutral region of GDW's Spinward Marches during the Imperium's "Golden Age" it provides a detailed overview of the agricultural world of Tarsus. As such it represents a superb piece of world building - rarely excelled even in literary Si Fi.

Tarsus is fairly realistic and so could also be adapted for the current incarnation of "Mongoose" 2300 AD (as a "French arm" world maybe?); although the Imperium backdrop elements along with one significant plot element would have to be changed, the latter which will be immediately obvious to any 2300 AD referee(!). Technology (being TL10) would fit fine in most instance as well, although references to antigrav tech would have to be removed.

My only (slight) criticism is that I would have prefered more scenarios. But what you do have is excellent - as it has high reuse value. Tarsus represents a good place to base/centre many types of campaigns. It could be adapted with very little effort for Mongoose Traveller and so still represents a good purchase even for current editions of Traveller. It hasn't dated that much at all to be honest.

Scan quality is quite good and all the elements of the original GDW boxed set are included in the PDF. If you want a world setting for Traveller I would recommend this one!
