2300AD Resources & Community

Postby Bojanglez » Mon Oct 16, 2017 3:50 pm

hey all,

I haven't played Traveller or 2300AD since the 80's (still the proud owner of my original LBB's!) but recently stumbled onto the updated 2300AD and have really fallen in love with the setting and am currently trying to convince my gaming group to give it a spin. However, so far I've yet to find much of a community dedicated to the game where players and referees swap stories or homebrew adventures or house-rules, etc. There are a few threads on this forum, and I found this facebook page, but can anyone point me in the direction of other resources or community dedicated to this awesome game?

thanks in advance!

Looks like you just volunteered to support the game.

Ran a few scenarios way, way back with the original edition but alas, as for many, life is cruel to my gaming life in the worst ways. Still didn't stop me from picking up the Mongoose edition. Love the more 'hard science' and 'realistic' aspects, the 'it could happen here' feel even without the WWIII history. The colonizing themes are what attract me the most making worlds and adventures a step into an age of discovery.

The Etranger site has lots of stuff about the military side of things:

and it has a links page to other possible resource sites, but most of them no longer work :(:

If you want to risk it there are T2300 subforums over at CotI:

My favourite take on the setting these days is to investigate the provolutionist campaign and stay away from the Kafer war. Dealing with biologically/cybernetically augmented breakaway colonists and their freedom fighters - sorry - terrorist attacks on Earth governments and corporations, Pentapod shenanigans, corporate intrigue, and yet more discoveries about the Agra intelligence and the Nyotekendu alien...
As I have posted before GDW had a transhuman space scifi game and didn't realise it. I can even forgive them the awful Earth/Cybertech tie in because with hindsight and removing a lot of the silly cyberpunk stuff you get a very rich setting.
