101 Patrons


101 Patrons provides Traveller referees with a collection of exciting Patrons and Situations, each with multiple possible outcomes (to keep your players guessing).

Patrons always have a task that needs doing, often dangerous, sometimes illegal, occasionally heroic. But does the patron have an ulterior motive? Do the rewards match the risks? That’s for the adventurers to decide.

Lady Luck can sometimes throw even the best-prepared adventurers into a hazardous Situation where fast thinking and decisive action is needed to save the day.

Included are:

  • Patrons looking to employ the adventurers (classified by the required skills and equipment) each with multiple possible plot reasons
  • Situations where the adventurers simply find themselves involved by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, again with multiple possible plot outcomes
  • An Adventure Generator based around the principle of “36 Dramatic Situations”
  • A collection of example Starport Notices for background ‘colour’
  • 50 World Seeds to create a quick bit of colour for a new planet
  • An Index to help you quickly find the fill-in plot hook that you need, right now!

One of the largest 101 Books released by BITS, 101 Patrons is a great aid to any Traveller referee looking to create a scenario, or simply as a ‘filler’ adventure for a gaming session. Complement this with 101 Plots and you should never be caught out for challenging adventures to throw at your players.

For those who buy Mongoose Publishing products, you may be interested to know that 101 Patrons is included in the content of their Supplement 16: Adventure Seeds (but we'd be very happy if you chose to buy our original version!)

While I have some experience GMing other RPGs, I certainly look forward to reading quality plot points, scenarios, and Npcs with which my players can interact. 101 Patrons provides this beyond my expectations. Especially helpful is the cross references [...]

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.
