There May Be Troubles Ahead


Eight adventures for Referee and single player or very small groups.

A Troubled Memory allows a backwoods ‘barbarian’ from an unexplored world to encounter a wider civilization and much higher technology levels.  This may provide answers to an unexplained part of his or her past life.

 A Troubled Place gives a backwater noble a chance to make a difference for his downtrodden people.

 A Troubled Library explores the fears of a librarian scholar regarding the safety of knowledge storage.

 A Troubled Recovery concerns a belter who has been a victim of an accident and receives rather surprising visitors whilst in the Priory of Panunzio.

 A Troubled Mind sees a parent’s concern for their child eventually involving the hunt for a secret, and illegal, psionic institute.

 In A Troubled Treasure, deserters, Sword Worlders, archaeologists and others are interested in a valuable find in the desert with a PC or two caught up in the middle of finding it and fighting over it.

 A Troubled Ship or The Frabjous Day, allows one, two or three novices to jump right into a Traveller experience and get a taste for what might lie ahead.

 A Troubled Case juxtaposes city and desert as the PC or PCs discover all is not quite what it seems.

Includes a one page introduction to Traveller for beginners.

FULL DISCLOSURE: A Troubled Mind appeared in Freelance Traveller, no.58, October 2014 and some NPCs from A Troubled Case were published (with additional stats) in no.79, January/February 2017.

Have you thought of doing another of these single or small group settings but instead of 8 different settings and protagonists, maybe have 2 sets of 4 for the same character(s). Like a mini-arc for those with few players in their group.

It's a good thought - I'll let it swill around in my brain and see what comes out! But don't hold your breath it will be quick. Any particular characters or adventures you'd like to see? (Not promising but it might inspire some thoughts...)

Haven't quite managed what you wanted, yet, but I have managed Call of the Wild if it helps:

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.
