Classic Traveller-CT- B01-Characters and Combat

Watermarked PDF

Traveller Book 1- Characters and Combat.  The core character rules... character generation using Traveller's unique prior career system, plus personal combat.

For Classic Traveller, the term Books has a special meaning: Books present additional rules on specific subjects, expanding on Traveller's basic concepts. Books run 48 to 56 pages and may be used independently or together, but all require the basic rules sets.

The first three Books 1-2-3 were part of Basic Traveller; the other books were expansions on specific subjects: the Navy, the Military, the Scouts, the Merchants, and Robots.

Is there any plan to make the '77 version available on DriveThruRPG? I for one would be interested!

Is this the 1977 or the 1981 printing? There are a few differences between them, and I actually kind of prefer the former.

Yes, I'd like to know if this is the 1977 or the 1981 printing, too!

Looking at the preview, it appears to be the '81 version.

Scanned image
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.
