Solomani Front
Publisher: Mongoose
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/24/2022 11:46:20

Solomani Front gives the Solomani Rim and Alpha Crucis the Mongoose 2 refurbished look plus a good deal of Solomani Culture. Deep inside this lore is the mystery of how humaniti was taken from Sol (Earth) and planeted widely across this section of the Milky Way. The mystery isn't explained but the effects of the mystery on the Solomani is explained.

Some of the politics of the Solomani are layed out along with some great Imperium History. I love the ships and there are a few new variations on humaniti like the Selenites (Spacers who do well in low and zero-g) and Aquamorphs (underwater adapted).

Mercenary
Publisher: Mongoose
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/05/2022 11:40:12

This gives the basics for running a military campaign where the Travellers are Mercenaries. The idea that there is a "Ticket" which is the contracted mission and some mini-games for different levels of success if you don't play out all the outcomes with the player combat found in the Core Rules book.

The mini-games give Success for a "MISSION AND OPERATION RESOLUTION" using what is called an "ECEI check". There is also a more in-depth mini-game that looks into Infiltration, winning the Hearts and Minds of the local populace and Intelligence. This book is worth it if the Referee and the Players want to make due with anything from flavor and background to a whole wargame.

ChangedStars Quickstart

Date Added: 03/05/2022 15:11:13

This is a Quickstart for the game so it is more a skeleton. If you like a game that lets you try out new aliens that aren't just humans with funny ears this is it! The setting is fun and very open for adventurel There is a Kickstarter for this https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dieselshot/changedstars that funded in January 2022. It is a really good primer for this setting and the rules. You can see it played on Garblag Games. https://youtu.be/Sazqp3tcjSg

The Arkham Gazette #4
Publisher: Sentinel Hill Press
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/09/2022 15:37:42

Where else can you get lots of lore like Brett Kramer's take on the cursed tome, "De Vermis Mysteriis" or a whole made up book of spectral stories like "Kingsport Ghosts"?

There are great NPCs and just what any Call of Cthulhu Keeper or Player needs, little details that enhances the games "suspension of disbelief" by building a suspension bridge of supernatural tinged background.

Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society Volume 3
Publisher: Mongoose
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/24/2022 16:13:54

This has great background for Jump Drives as well as the Stats of a Manufacturing Ship. There is a Prison Break adventure and a very good NPC with a bounty to collect on. The art matches the great layout. Worth the money it if any of these are things you want in an adventure!

Four-Bit Characters, Volume 1
Publisher: Chaosium
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/05/2022 06:32:02

These are well done historical characters that you can use as NPCs or Investigators. They all have agency enough to move in any adventure but are diverse in ancestry and background. The long suffering wife of H.P. Lovecraft makes an appearence as does the African-American Pilot Bessie Coleman. The art and writing make for ease of reading and more importantly ready for you to use, as an Investigator or Keeper.

What's more is there may be a second one coming out!

I learned about this from the review from the great RPG YouTube Channel XPLovecat.

Traveller: Explorer's Edition
Publisher: Mongoose
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/27/2021 06:29:16

A great introduction to that gameplay flavor of Traveller that points toward going into the unknown or more mysteriously forgotten parts of space. It opens with a quote by that most wise of humans Carl Sagan and continues in that vein. Made as a showcase for those new to Mongoose 2 it also works for anyone who is a fan of Sci-Fi RPGs in general. It gives you character creation, skills, worlds, some spaceships that are perfect for exploration and combat if seeking out new worlds and new civilizations goes awry.

Type A Free Trader "HIMS Hopscotch"
Publisher: Scrying Eye Games
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/19/2021 18:01:42

I use it for my on-line Traveller game and the only problem is that you have four panels to put together. The sensational sci-fi details like bathroom, cryopods and Beowulf superstructure are moere than worth the work. I may end up purchasing more of this artists work.

Referee's Aid 3: Type-A Free Trader
Publisher: Mongoose
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/08/2021 14:29:39

A great bit of text about that workhorse spaceship of Travellers who work to pay off that debt while getting into adventures mercantile or military, exploration or investigation.The writing by Martin J. Dougherty never disappoints and gives game mechanics along with adventure hooks and background. Matthew Sprange edits this well and the art and layout by Will Chapman and Amy Perrett follow the classic Traveller Little Black Book.

Salvage

Date Added: 12/06/2021 19:31:14

Finding a great niche for one of the more neglected aspects of making money in the Traveller Universe, Salvage. There are tables for new character class, the Salvor. It illuminates Imperial Law for flavor, game mechanics and narrative drive. Worth it at more than twice the price.

The only fault I can find with this is it left me wanting more! This group of adventures wait to be one shot characters for your players or NPCs for you campaign. The Classic Traveller feel and Cepheus Engine Compatible can be used for any version of Traveller with some minor changes.

Just looking at their background, skills and black/white art elcit thoughts of moving cargo across the cosmos.

Solomani Adventure 1: Mysteries on Arcturus Station
Publisher: Mongoose
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/25/2021 19:44:22

Two mysteries for the price of one, this well written module requires a little more work from the Referee (Game Master) because of its deliberate open-ended sandbox setup. There is a mini-adventure followed by the larger mystery, so it lets your players become more invested in both the setting and the Noire flavored NPCs.

Even if you don't get to run the module, the complex and compelling NPCs are worth the price alone. They can be used for your own homebrewed adventures. I'm using it in my campaign and it fits perfectly.

A great compendium of Cthulhu articles. Magazines are for reading that isn't constrained to one author, style or even one subject. This fulfills all three. Buy and enjoy!

Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game
Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
by CD F. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/24/2021 11:02:47

Modern Covert Horror game based on Call of Cthulhu. The setting is great as are the mechanics of play. An insane conspiracy to keep quiet something that is so fantastic and sanity destroying that people have a hard time believing it anyway? If you were a fan of such TV shows liked Stranger Things, Evil, the X-Files or Lost you might give this a try.

This really makes for a great way to get that game immersion and flesh out your adventure. I know when I filled out mine it made me think of the organiztion and the personalities behind it. The players would refer back to it and it was worth way more than the purchase price.

Please make more!
