The Drinaxian Companion is an expansion to both the Trojan Reach and the Pirates of Drinax campaign, and useful for any and all pirate-based adventures in Traveller.

This volume presents additional rules and adventure possibilities, along with a useful summary of the Pirates of Drinax campaign and locations featured within it. New aspects of the Trojan Reach sector are explored with Central Supply Catalogue and High Guard additions that cover the Sindalian Empire, base building, and new starships such as the Rorix Command Vessel, Cestion Strike Boat, and the ECITS modular system that permits the quick and easy customisation of a standard vessel to accommodate a massive range of functions.


Inside you will find:

* Guidance on running the campaign with new perspectives and schemes the Travellers can attempt.
* A complete Assets and Factions system, allowing the Travellers to build a network of havens and supporting organisations across the sector.
* A detailed look at the nature of piracy and counters to it.
* Rules for building pirate bases from scratch, ensuring there is always a safe place to run to when the Imperial Navy arrives.
* A deep dive into specific locations and patrons found within the Trojan Reach.
* Stories From Sindal, a system that allows Travellers to research and chase up rumours of caches and other secrets from the lost Sindalian Empire.
* Personalities and factions from the Trojan Reach, ready to be inserted into any campaign,
* First Prize, an introductory adventure that can be played before Pirates of Drinax to introduce Travellers to the wonderful world of piracy!

The Drinaxian Companion also includes the following ebooks:

* The Torpol Cluster
* Theev
* Friends in Dry Places
* Gods of Marduk
* Liberty Port
* Lions of Thebus
* Revolution on Acrid
* The Cordan Conflict
* Harrier Class Commerce Raider
* Ship Encounters

Will the companion be updated with the missing details on the optional Harrier upgrades?

So out of curiosity, what is the status of the Hardcopy... Is it due to be printed soon,
on the high seas, or just awaiting...

Not pushing hard, its 2020, I know there is all sorts of production/distribution delays/problems for
every company.. just curious, if there is any type of status available.

So far printings came along well this year. It's due in October, so I'm looking forward for end of that month.

I'll send the Harrier over to confiscate the shipment on the grounds of state security.

Can we get an update on when we might see the hardcopy version of this book? The ebook is nice and all, but I'm old school when it comes to lining up those hardcover on my shelves.

Wait, wasn't the Companion released last year? Is this already a reprint? With corrections probably?

Or you were lucky enough to get one of the super-rare advance copies from the printers...
