101 Religions


101 Religions addresses the questions that drive so many sentient species across the Traveller universe, translating the resulting myriad of belief systems into concise descriptions that will be meaningful to Traveller players and may lead to events or plot hooks that add colour to your Traveller games.

What is the meaning of life? From their first primitive ancestors to the time of the great, star-spanning Third Imperium, almost every known sophont race has developed religion. The diversity of alien species has led to an equally diverse range of religions and beliefs which can affect every aspect of a world’s culture. An unwary traveller who falls foul of these beliefs may find themselves disliked, ignored, cast out or even sentenced to death!

Included are:

  • 101 Religions grouped by the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service religion code
  • Player Description for each religion, indicating information that could be found in standard library data
  • Referee Details for each religion, containing background detail that might not be known by visitors to a new world
  • Plot Ideas for each entry as examples of how to bring the religion ‘to life’ for your Traveller adventurers

101 Religions can be combined with 101 Governments, 101 Lifeforms, 101 Rendezvous and 101 Corporations, such that a Traveller referee can build an entire world from its basic Universal World Profile.

For those who buy Mongoose Publishing products, you may be interested to know that 101 Religions 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!)

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.
