Referee's Briefing 2: Anomalies and Wonders

Watermarked PDF

Much of the time Travellers move from one starport to the next, seeing the shops and the bars and not much else. In between they stare at the same six bulkheads and watch old movies, or sit around in the galley chatting. Some of them have more to talk about than others; tales of adventure and daring that might just possibly be true. And every now and then the conversation turns to the wonders of Charted Space… the amazing places and strange sights that await those who dare to visit them. Some of these anomalies and wonders are mythical, some are known to be real, and some are not quite either of those. Anomalies and
Wonders is a guide to some of those wondrous places. It will give Travellers something to talk about for years to come.

Once in a while a group of Travellers might raise their eyes above the endless cycle of mortgage payments on their ship or out of the murk of the local criminal underworld.

They might see something truly amazing if they do.

After the dumpster fire that is High Guard, I'm not shelling out any more money to these crooks.

<sigh> You aren't obliged to, although this point alone ought to question how these creators could be labelled as 'crooks'.

$6.00 for 17 pages? Keep dreaming.

Yeah, that pricing is crazy. Mongoose will have to come down. They can't assume that we're going to toss gold bars across just because a product bears the Traveller name. Especially not for a vague product about pretty astral phenomena or geographical features with no clear idea of how they will find use in a game.

Total agreement, look like they didn't sell rpg for particular with the lack of good artwork Inside, always offering material with 1980's amateur look at 2020 pro price....

Well, they have to make money to keep the game profitable. I've bought it and I'm happy with the material - it's gone Copper already too.

17 pages? Ya right I guarantee at least 2 of the 17 is cover and OGL legal. Unfortunately as long as people keep buying anything with TRAVELLER across the top Mongoose will keep fleecing the flock.

Original electronic
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.
