Career Book 2 is here!

Inside the sequel to Spica Publishing's highly successful Career Book 1 you'll find:

  • Two alternative methods for generating Background Skills;
  • An alternative Injury Table;
  • University and Graduate School pre-career options
  • Two new skills: Manipulation and Psychohistory, and an expanded Trade skill
  • 14 new careers for use in your Traveller game or campaign:

ATHLETE: Striving for accolades, athletes compete in games spanning subsectors. It's the winning that matters!
CHANCER: Lying, cheating, stealing, and deceit: the tools of the trade of the Chancer, who can only win as long as someone else loses.
COMPANION: Whether you're down-trodden and poor, or high-class and rich, everyone pays a price in the oldest profession.
COSMONAUT: Making a living in space can be hard work, with cargo pods to be moved, repairs to be made and people to be rescued!
ENFORCER: Thug, bully boy, heavy: names mean nothing to you. Getting a result for your boss means everything!
INSURGENT: Working within the government, you work in the background, helping those who seek to overthrow the government.
MEDIA PRACTITIONER: Lights! Camera! Action! Whether it's a soap opera, a documentary or a quiz show, you're the one who makes it shine!
MYSTIC WARRIOR: You're searching for the truth both within and without, and enjoying a fight along the way!
POLITICIAN: Greed, money, power, and votes: when you're a politician, you need plenty of these!
PORT AUTHORITY: You make sure the right cargo gets to the right ship, the ships get off the pad and that the taxes on the cargos have been paid!
PRISONER: Whether you're a common criminal, a political agitator or a prisoner of war: behind bars, everyone has one thought - to get out!
PUPPETEER: These alien experimenters are happy to wait to see the outcome of their experiments on other societies.
SECRET POLICE: The Secret Police know what everyone is doing, what everyone is saying and where everyone is going!
SLAVE: Your life is in the hands of your master or mistress, their every wish a command, and every command an order!

Also included are 57 pre-generated characters! Three are from each of the new careers, plus 14 multi-career characters (generated using both the Traveller Main Book and Career Book 2) - all pre-generated and ready for when you need characters in a hurry!

Requires the use of the Traveller Core Rulebook, available from Mongoose Publishing.

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.
