Best intro adventure?

Postby PsiTraveller » Wed Sep 11, 2019 7:07 pm

I am starting a new Traveller group, 2 people have never played Traveller before, one person has.

Any suggestions as to a goood introductory module to the game? Has anyone found an adventure that really gives a good feel for the game?

High and Dry is a good adventure, if you want them to obtain a scout ship.

Good intro to Traveller. Starship recovery / patron job / rescue mission. No combat though, unless you’re a heartless bastard and shoot the starving dog.

You can always add a random encounter with some combat. Maybe a barroom brawl at the starport just before the IISS contacts them about the job, or a run-in with the former crew (I think the adventure mentions that).

I'll echo Martin Dougherty's usual pitch for Flatlined, which starts with a group of amnesiac characters with no shoes on a sinking ship...
