101 Governments


101 Governments covers every aspect of interstellar rule, from worlds without governments to oppressive regimes. The former could be mindless anarchies or liberated Gardens of Eden; the locals might accept trade or reject all outsiders. At the other end of the spectrum are regimes focused solely upon maintaining the rulership of paranoid dictators: a good market for arms, if you’re willing to run the risk of being ‘disappeared’ by their fanatical intelligence services.

Included are:

  • 101 Governments, grouped by the Scout Corp coding system
  • Separate player descriptions and referee notes
  • Plot ideas with which to briefly distract your Traveller players or set them off on a whole new adventure

Intentionally designed to be generic and usable with any of the Traveller rule systems, 101 Governments is part of the BITS series of aids for Traveller referees; combined with 101 Corporations, 101 Religions and 101 Lifeforms it helps flesh out the plethora of worlds found in the Traveller universe.

For those who buy Mongoose Publishing products, you may be interested to know that 101 Governments is included in the content of their Supplement 15: Powers & Principalities (but we'd be very happy if you chose to buy our original version!)

Oh man! I was just starting work on a sci fi campaign and dug up my physical copy I bought at a large convention probably 20 years ago. It's a very solid read, with lots of interesting governments.

But so I looked it up on Drive Thru to see if it was here and it is! I will be picking up some of the others I don't own, like Corporations.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
