T4 Milieu 0


There are many possible universes to TRAVELLER. As the world's first science-fiction role-playing game, it was originally designed with the entire spectrum of SF stories in mind-from hard science fiction, to social science fiction (both human and alien), to the speculative realms of psionic powers, to "space opera" and high adventure. Early in the game's development, however, due to player demand, a singular vision of the universe began to evolve. It was a vision of the Third Imperium, a vast interstellar empire, heir to two others that have arisen and fallen over the millennia of human history. It was a vision of amazing deeds, brilliant successes and monumental tragedies, as humaniti struggled to tame the galaxy, and to master itself. As a backdrop, this history is quite large enough to still allow for that original broad range of SF stories, but able also to provide unity to the game.

  • Witness the first days of the Third Imperium.
  • What every diplomat should know about contacting a new world.

I'm a sucker for the Traveller universe. Traveller T4 has often been criticized for typos and errors, but looking beyond that this product provides an excellent overview of the early days of the Third Imperium. [...]

A well done background to the T4 era. The writing is not bad and the information interesting and helpful in setting up T4 games. Most of the book is related to the government situation in one way or another. Since T4 is a time of expansion, this makes [...]

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.
