Career Book 1 from Spica Publishing includes eight new careers for use in your science fiction game or campaign! 

Adventurer: Having crossed sectors in your search, you finally locate the ancient device inscribed with alien writing. Travel, excitement, danger, ancient artefacts. This is why your patron pays you such good money!

Bounty Hunter: Any one. Any where. Any time. Dead or alive. For the right price.

Clergy: Bringing the message to the faithless, you carry out your work amongst both rich and the poor, saving souls and helping others to see the light.

Colonist: Chancing it all on a barren rock out in the middle of nowhere, if you find it, it's got your name on the claim.

Corporate Citizen: A hustler, a mover, a shaker, you make the big money decisions that keep the financial markets running like clockwork.

Militant Religious: When your god calls you to arms to convert the faithless, no task is too big and no goal too high. Your efforts will be rewarded in the afterlife!

Space Patrol: The Space Patrol deals with everything from docking bay infractions and dangerous orbital maneuvers to smugglers and pirates. Make sure you have your Pilot license with you!

Worker: The common man, Joe Plumber, no less, doing the essential jobs that no-one else wants to do.

Pre-Generated Characters: Now with 48 pre-generated characters, three from each of the eight new careers, plus 12 multi-career characters (generated using both the Traveller Main Book and Career Book 1) - all pre-generated and ready for when you need characters in a hurry!

Inside you’ll also find expanded Mishap and Events tables for the careers in the Traveller Main Book, along with two alternative Life and Unusual Events tables for use during character generation.

There is little that I can add to the general chorus of highly justified praise for this suppliment. Spica Publications has outdone themselves with their Career Books, the alternate events table with d66 resolutions alone are almost worth the price by [...]

Picked up this along with a few other Spica books. I really thought they did a great job with the new careers and felt they offered some fun shifts for players without becoming munchkinish. I loved the d66 charts as well. I thought the layout was nice, [...]

Career Book 1 from Spica Publishing is among the finest third-party publications for the Traveller RPG that I have ever seen. The book features several all-new and fresh careers for PCs, as well as a fine selection of NPCs. Layout and art are fantastic [...]

Very nice, I heartily recommend picking this up, it has some extras you'll find very useful indeed! Just remember this combines some new event tables for certain careers as well as pregenerated characters for those careers and given the price its certa [...]

An excellent addition to one's Mongoose Traveller game, providing over half a dozen new careers, and expanded event tables for a number of core careers. My personal favorite is the Space Patrol, but having clergy and militant clergy careers allo [...]

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.
