See How They Run


Natural disasters, man made disasters and human disasters!  All encountered by one small ship trying to make a living on the edge of the Imperium and facing moral dilemmas about their best course of action.

Merchant ships are a common sight in Known Space and the Zhodani have their share of traders plying the spacelanes even if they’re less well known to the Imperials.  One such crew has their work cut out for them to make their way in District 268 where they’ll never be quite sure of their reception at the next world.

A companion adventure to Three Blind Mice which is not required.  Includes classic Traveller and Cepheus Engine conversions for all PCs, NPCs and task checks.

What They Said About Three Blind Mice

  “a very decent introductory adventure for an experienced GM with more novice players” allen c. (DriveThruRPG)

 “would make a good change-of-pace for a tournament or other convention play-session” Everett W. (DriveThruRPG)

 “a flexible scenario… while the setup is handy for one offs and tournaments it could work for anyone with a little work although there is a stowaway element that might be hard to make work with your more conscientious/paranoid trader crew” Richard G. (DriveThruRPG)

 “an interesting and very open adventure which can be run in many different ways depending on what the Referee wishes to achieve” and “well-resourced with background material as well as with loads of pre-generated characters” Megan R. (DriveThruRPG Featured Reviewer)

 “easily the equal of any adventure folio for Traveller that I’ve seen” Jeff Zeitlin (Freelance Traveller)

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.
