Okay for those wondering this is "Traveller, the scientist and scout edition," a concise set of the core Traveller rules, with a focus exclusively on these two careers. It includes details on a scout ship as well, and enough equipment to satisfy a campaign centered around scientists and scouts exploring. It has the world generation rules, and pretty much everything you need to run campaigns indefinitely, as long as you are ready to focus on an exploration style campaign. This book for veterans would be useful to hand to players who want an easier bar of entry to learning the rules (Traveller is a very easy game to learn and play, but it doesn't have that impression to new players initially). For those who just want the full enchilada, I strongly suggest the Traveller Core Rules 2022 Update which is a fantastic revision of the current MGT era edition of Traveller, and has All The Stuff. But if you want to test the waters on Traveller, or if you want to run a Jack McDevitt-styled Priscilla Hutchins Academy...See more

Would it be possible to add shield rules (forcefield) in starship section?

Traveller does not traditionally have "shield" rules, unless you count Black Globe Generators, which are not really relevant to this type of campaingn except possibly as a plot device.

Agreed. So, this is essentially a "Quickstart" set of rules? Does it include the solar system creation system NOT included in the Starter Set?

Okay, had a twiddle - give it a few minutes and a refresh for Drivethru's servers to get into gear and then you should be good to go!

It does include system creation. I don't have access to the Starter Set so I don't know about what was missing from that.

World and Universe Creation rules were included in the Starter set, as they are in the Explorer’s Edition.

Great Customer Service. Thanks, Matt. Still running games here in Thailand. This is perfect as a gateway for new players.

Format

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.
