Guide to GameLords Classic Traveller

Watermarked PDF


   GameLords, Ltd began as a fantasy role-playing publisher with its Thieves Guild game system. In 1982, the company expanded to science-fiction and acquired a license to produce Traveller titles. Between 1982 and 1984, GameLords published impressive titles by a variety of authors. This is an overview of the titles.

   In addition to short scenario books, GameLords introduced a clever pairing of Environment rules books with an associated adventure: (for example, The Mountain Environment and Ascent to Anekthor).

   Founder Kerry Lloyd died in 1985 and the company ceased operations. Remaining inventory was purchased by Different Worlds and continued to be sold for several years. With the expiration of the license, the rights to the books reverted to GDW (and ultimately Far Future Enterprises).

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.
