ACERS brings with it to the GM, or the player useful, 3-D NPC's as allies, Contacts, Enemies, or Rivals, just like the title says it does. These are not cut-out mediocre generic 'strawmen' to be shot full of ribbons by the Travellers/ Player Characters, but plausible, realistic sophonts in the Traveller/ Hard sci-Fi 'Verse your players can encounter. As one of the contributors, I am biased of course, But I find the rest of the project I was not involved in meets the high expectations and superior work SPICA Press has established itself in the SF RPG marketplace. I am also proud my name is within this product, and pleased at the end product, which I have also purchased.
Shiny side up!
Sincerely, 'Liam Devlin'/ SSG Daniel W Hammersley
