Traveller Referee's Screen

The usual: pretty picture for the players and all manner of useful charts on the referee's side.

Despite the picture of a starship bridge that's rather reminiscent of the Space Shuttle's controls on the cover, the pictures your players get to gaze at are a circular galaxy viewed almost edge-on, a spiral galaxy viewed from above, someone engaged in an EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity or spacewalk), and an interstellar dust cloud. The astronomical features are delightful images, the sort you get from the Hubble telescope. The fellow on EVA appears to be a contemporary astronaut judging by his space suit, but it's a nice picture nevertheless.

Meanwhile the Referee can refer to a range of useful tables (although do you really want him looking up radiation damage?) - timeframes, encounter ranges, healing, weapon traits, vehicular actions, turn sequence and the like. It should save a lot of looking-up in the heat of battle.

Useful, as well as a place to hide your notes and your secret die-rolls, but nothing remarkable. If you Referee regularly, it's worth picking up.

Overpriced and underwhelming!

This new edition of Traveller from Mongoose is great, gut thier referee screen disappoints. Too little substance for too much money. The product description says the document is 13 pages.

Here's a breakdown of the 13 pages:

Page 1: The cover - It has a table of contents (yes for 13 pages) Pagse 2-5 Reference sheets from the new core rules Pages 6-9: B/W art of the 4-panels Pages 10-13 Color art of the 4-panels

I guess I misunderstood that 13 pages would be in addition to the screen art. I also wasnt expecting to get the screen art twice. The art is cool I'll give them that. But I was hoping for AT LEAST 13 pages of charts and tables from the core rules! Not 8-pages of the screen art.

I can't imagine paying $20 for the printed version anf the "discounted" pdf for $11.99 is not worth it either. Maybe $3.99.
