Golden Age Starships 2: Corsair

Watermarked PDF

Golden Age Starships 2: Corsair is a complete game supplement for the Mongoose Traveller roleplaying game. Full stats are included for Mongoose Traveller, but this supplement is suitable for use with any version of Traveller, or indeed with other rules sets.

This booklet contains complete information and deckplans for an upgraded variant of the 400 ton Corsair, known as the Buccaneer class. This corsair class is suitable as a ship that could be encountered by characters if they are travelling anywhere on the fringes of the Imperium and beyond, although the specific encounters listed in this book are located in the Spinward Marches. Alternatively, this design could be used as the basis of a corsair campaign, with the players taking roles as pirates. Any of the scenarios presented in this book could be used as the basis for a corsair campaign.

Golden Age Starships 2: Corsair also details five corsair bands operating in the Spinward Marches, along with artwork depicting each corsair. Each band is presented with Mongoose Traveller NPC statistics of the band's leaders and associates, strategy, tactics, operating area, known bases, and guidelines for characters encountering each band. One band is a privateer group, one a "chivalrous" operator, as well as three more conventional cut-throat bands.

While the corsair bands are presented as operating in the Marches, these can easily be lifted to any part of Charted Space and other times.

Author Quote:
"As well as detailing the ships, Corsair provides colorful background details of several pirate bands, their leaders and their ships. These groups might be an incidental encounter, an ongoing nemesis, or players could become part of one of the bands for reasons of their own."

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.
