I simply love this ruleset! I bought the pdf a few months ago during the Lockdown, but since I have discovered and read Classic Traveller my appreciation has matured into true love. Since Cepheus Engine SRD is complete but not very handy (I usally refer to it for additional careers or of pick-up of specific rules), I consider Cepheus Light the true heir of the original three LBB. I am running a successful micro-campaign with it and the players despite their D&D background really appreciate the simplicity of the game mechanics and their immediacy. They obviously didn't like the character generation much, but on that point (like most Traveler players) I'm resigned to being a white fly. Everything you need to run a sci-fi campaign is in this rulebook. It's setting agnostic (which for me is a plus), but if you want some, Stellagama published a few. Pre-written settings are not really my cup of tea, but as far as I can tell, they are very well written. For me, Cepheus Light is all I need as all topics are well explained and covered: from character generation to equipment and combat; from space travel and combat to starship design. And obviously star mapping and world generation. I ordered also the POD Pocket Edition from another provider and the format and the layout are superb.

Cepheus Light is an exceptional compact simplistsic version of the Cepheus Engine OGL RPG. Hands down I like this version very much. It makes many gaming apsects simple and easy. The book has excellent straight up examples to how certain aspects of the game work and flow. Eliminating most cascade skills into smart general categories making other skills incorporate a larger range of abilities, giving guns simple range statistics with each gun. Making personal combat extremely simple and well orchestrated. Simple Starship and smallcraft design rules. Space combat feels almost like familiar older traditional science fiction 2D6 games we are all familiar with. I like the added cybernetics and robots. Also a couple of Alien races. Cepheus Light is a book I highly recommend. If you want a very functional slimmed down version of a 2D6 OGL Science Fiction game this book is a must!!!

Great work!!!!!

A very effective edit of the core Cepheus rules set. I appreciated many of the choices made to streamline game play, particularly regarding the skill list, vehicle combat, and ship design. It's very close to how I've played Traveller since the LBBs. Would recommend.
