Sourcebook for the Aslan?

Postby Hakkonen » Wed Sep 11, 2019 12:28 pm

I'm reading the article on the Arhiyao clan in JTAS Vol. 3, and I feel like I'm missing big chunks of what the author was trying to say. Part of it is terminology, part of it is knowing nothing about Aslan history, culture, or politics. I gather that Behind the Claw will be Mongoose Traveller's Aslan sourcebook; is that right? If so, does that have a release date yet? What other books are worth considering?

Pirates of Drinax has loads of info on the Aslan (mostly based on the first edition book Alien Manual 1: Aslan, but updated for 2nd edition)

Right. I doubt they'll be a 2nd edition Aslan sourcebook. That material was rolled into the Pirates of Drinax campaign set. I wouldn't be surprised to see some more Aslan material in Behind the Claw or in the other projects, but Pirates of Drinax book 2 should serve as the main sourcebook.

All I know is what the publisher has stated. I don’t think he’s posted an actual preview.
