Drinaxian Companion

Watermarked PDF

The Drinaxian Companion is an expansion to both the Trojan Reach and the Pirates of Drinax campaign, and useful for any and all pirate-based adventures in Traveller.

This volume presents additional rules and adventure possibilities, along with a useful summary of the Pirates of Drinax campaign and locations featured within it. New aspects of the Trojan Reach sector are explored with Central Supply Catalogue and High Guard additions that cover the Sindalian Empire, base building, and new starships such as the Rorix Command Vessel, Cestion Strike Boat, and the ECITS modular system that permits the quick and easy customisation of a standard vessel to accommodate a massive range of functions.


Inside you will find:

  • Guidance on running the campaign with new perspectives and schemes the Travellers can attempt.
  • A complete Assets and Factions system, allowing the Travellers to build a network of havens and supporting organisations across the sector.
  • A detailed look at the nature of piracy and counters to it.
  • Rules for building pirate bases from scratch, ensuring there is always a safe place to run to when the Imperial Navy arrives.
  • A deep dive into specific locations and patrons found within the Trojan Reach.
  • Stories From Sindal, a system that allows Travellers to research and chase up rumours of caches and other secrets from the lost Sindalian Empire.
  • Personalities and factions from the Trojan Reach, ready to be inserted into any campaign,
  • First Prize, an introductory adventure that can be played before Pirates of Drinax to introduce Travellers to the wonderful world of piracy!

The Drinaxian Companion also includes the following ebooks:

  • The Torpol Cluster
  • Theev
  • Friends in Dry Places
  • Gods of Marduk
  • Liberty Port
  • Lions of Thebus
  • Revolution on Acrid
  • The Cordan Conflict
  • Harrier Class Commerce Raider
  • Ship Encounters

Lots of problems with this PDF. The table of contents are misordered, the Harrier part is missing content specifically the upgrading the Harrier portion, the sections are out of sync. It's a mess.

Seriously look at the contents - if you already own and have paid for most of them then this is unlikely to be a cost-effective purchase.

If you don't already own the content or money is no object it is a useful supplement.

It is a fine supplement-if you have not faithfully bought before now all of the e-books which comprise about one-third to one half of its content. If you have, it is an expensive proposition but might still add value to a full-on Drinax campaign, such as I'm running. I look forward to 'Shadows of Sindal' which I hope will be 100% new material and not a 'repackaging'. I say this not out of concern for the money spent-after all-the original Drinax campaign was given for free, and I could never pay enough for the enjoyment it has given me and my players for over 5 years now. It's just that I would sooner have bought only the newer parts of this supplement on their own, dispensing with what has been published before.

If you do not own the component e-books and are new to Drinax, 5 stars
If you do have these already, then 2.5 stars

This is all true - I too, have all the PDFs.

If you have the Pirates of Drinax box set, however, it would make a fine physical book to compliment the campaign. That’s probably how I am going to invest in it moving forward.

I've already spent more than the cost of this book on the repackaged content and while I don't feel entitled to receiving the new content for free, it would be nice if those of us who have already bought the existing content that was repackaged could get this new book at a discount like some other publishers do.

If any of the people who buy this would take the time to note down how much of it would be spoilers for players in a Pirates of Drinax campaign, that would be greatly appreciated.

Julian-It is not a 'Players Handbook' or sourcebook like 'Trojan Reach Sector' or the 'Central Supply Catalogue'. It has scenarios, tips, NPCs and most tellingly, a 'helpful' recap of the whole Drinax campaign. GM material only, in the main. A wise GM though would certainly dole out the good parts to the players...

Thanks! Though I wish I could buy a players version with only the things that are spoiler free.

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.
