What happened to the Traveller Companion?

Postby nicohdemus » Wed Jun 01, 2016 7:14 pm

So what happened to the Traveller Companion that was mentioned as the collection of things for the GM? It's mentioned in the Core Rulebook as "a massive toolkit allowing you to tailor your campaign to exactly how you want it". I thought it used to be listed on the Upcoming Releases list but I don't see it anymore.

Yes, I was hoping to see that as well. Since it hinted at things that are usually not part of standard Traveller. Like Transhumanism? Time Travel, etc? Also what happened to the Star Trek game?

Well, it wasn't part of the play tested supplements so it'll probably turn up on the schedule once those that were are released. Not sure about Prime Directive, but there is an upcoming Traveller version of the transhumanist setting, Mindjammer in the next couple of months or so.

Likely looking at next year now for the Companion - however, note that some material planned for the Companion has appeared in other books (such as High Guard).

I assume the Tour of the Third Imperium is also happening next year?

Well, actually... that project has sort of mutated into something a bit grander :) More news to follow!

I just picked up the new rule book and so far it looks great. But under aliens one of the first things it says is that you can find out more about playing aliens in the Traveller companion. Is this referencing a 2nd addition of future alien books?

Good question.
The last entry I can see on it on this forum is a couple of years ago.

Understand that I'm not advocating violence.
I'm just saying that it's highly effective and I strongly recommend using it.

Queries with regards Prime Directive should go to ADB - we are not involved with that project.

Looking at their site it is still planned but that's all I know.
