Traveller 40th anniversary

Traveller the roleplaying game is celebrating its 40th anniversary today so I took the opportunity to update rules, maps, ship design system etc to the latest version today.

Did you know that you can use Intercept with your Traveller characters with no conversion needed, at least if you use the classic system or anything similar to that? And that Intercept has premade versions of Freetrader, Fartrader, Subsidized merchant & launch, Scout courier, Survey cruiser, Patrol cruiser, Modular cutter, Mercenary cruiser, Close escort & launch, System defense boat & Jump shuttle, Fleet escort, Azhanti cruiser & Rampart fighter? Here! The rulebook, maps etc are available here.

Intercept is not Traveller but is compatible with it, at least at higher tech levels. High Guard and Striker weregreat sources of inspiration for the design system and what to focus on and what to change (GURPS Vehicles 2ed should also be mentioned here). I have been playing Traveller since 1978 with lots of different people, including my kids as they grew up. Many thanks to Marc Miller, Loren Wiseman, Frank Chadwick and of course the brothers J Andrew Keith and William H Keith Jr!
