Element Cruiser Box Set Kickstarter - Feb 16th 10am

Postby msprange » Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:00 pm

Greetings Travellers!

After the roaring success of the Great Rift box set (now on a ship to our warehouse) and the Pirates of Drinax mega-campaign (due to start shipping pre-orders this week), we are proud to present a brand new Kickstarter:

The Element Class Cruiser Ship Builder's Blueprint box set will go live this Friday(February 16th) at 10am GMT.

Image

This box set is jam-packed full of giant (28" x 40") blueprints that showcase each deck of the Element cruiser family of ships (each deck is 105" long, when you lay the blueprints end to end!), together with the Element Cruiser handbook that describes how these ships are used, how they go about operations, and the duties of each member of the crew, together with full High Guard descriptions of the ships, optional modules and new equipment.

Image

But we do not want to stop there - we are hoping that, with your help, we will be able to add at least one more book to this box set, giving referees all the tools they need to run naval/bridge crew campaigns, whether they are based upon one of the Element class cruisers or another ship (or space station, for that matter...). This will formally introduce a new style of play to Traveller, one that has been touched upon in the past, but never fully catered for, and it is something we are very excited about!

As with the Great Rift Kickstarter project, backing at the basic level automatically qualifies you for every stretch goal and, like the Great Rift (which turned from a 200 page project to nearly a 400 page set, plus three standalone adventures), that will hopefully mean you get a lot of Traveller goodness!

This project goes live on Friday morning, and we hope to see you all there!

Looks good!

Especially the onboard campaign supplement!

In our gaming, we've had several sets of sessions on boards of space stations/ships, and it was pretty cool.

One other thing that has to be in one of the books - how to use HG2e to build ships for the OTU 3I setting. For example:

what is the maximum m-drive rating?

which weapon systems exist in the OTU and which do not?

This is actually a thing, and we are working on it - likely not for this set though.
