help with Maps/ planets for traveller drinax

Postby nln_rose » Wed Mar 04, 2015 10:07 pm

I'm starting a the ref for a game of pirates of drinax how can i get my hands on the maps of the systems and how do i read the planet info? I have the 1980's copy of traveller which seems to have some slightly different ways of doing things. eg the 8 char code for attributes of a planet makes no sense to me. any help would be appreciated thanks.

You might want to get either the hardcopy or PDF for The Trojan Reach. Obvious wealth of maps and information for that campaign. DriveThruRPG is having it on sale.

As to the 8 character code, that is one of the foundations of the Traveller system and you really need to know it. Seriously need to invest in the Mongoose Core Book to run a campaign based on it. The code isn't that difficult to understand in any addition. There will be charts describing what each number in the string means.

The Aslan book has a large section detailing a fair amount of the Trojan Reach, including plenty of maps. I've found it very useful. I'll second travellermap.com. Excellent. We put it up on a projector a few times while the guys were deciding on strategy.
