Mongoose News - Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society - Kickstarter is Live!

Postby msprange » Fri Mar 08, 2019 10:12 am

The Kickstarter for the Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society has begun and will end on April 7th!

The Journal of the Travellers’ Aid Society was a magazine-format way, way back in the ‘Classic’ Traveller era of the early 80’s, a treasure trove of articles, introducing many of the concepts we take for granted in Traveller today.

We are bringing the Journal back, albeit as a set of supplements rather than a time-limited magazine. To this end, we have been trawling through the Journals of yesteryear, selecting the best articles, and revising/re-writing them for the latest edition of the game, and adding a whole Leviathan's cargo hold worth of new material. These will (initially) be compiled into three volumes which, for Kickstarter backers only, will arrive within their own deluxe slipcase.

Doing this project via Kickstarter will not only allow us to gauge your opinions and reactions as to the actual contents of the Journals and which articles should be selected for inclusion, but we can link your backing directly to the amount of content – in effect, the more popular this project becomes, the more volumes we will be able to put into the slipcase. We will be starting with three volumes and have already started compiling articles for a fourth. How many more will follow will be up to all of you!

There will truly be something for everyone in these books, from adventures that a referee can pull out at short notice when the Travellers jet off in an unexpected direction, to a wide range of new alien races that will be fully playable for those who want to try something a bit different.

Whether you are exploring your own universe or are deep within Charted Space, we are hoping that every page of these new Journals will trigger new ideas, adventures and deep space explorations at every turn!
