Description (Specifications)[edit]

Teaser: Six top Darrian university scientists are on an expedition to Spume to investigate the (top secret) properties of certain materials. A Special Arm scientist on the fringes of the Star Trigger project leads the expedition, a vulcanologist, a seismologist, two materials specialists, and a technician are in support and looking forward to the university paid trip. Have any of them actually read up on Spume?

This is the first volume of a trilogy set on the volcanic world with Darrian scientists researching, exploring and surviving.


Ashfall
“It’s not a garden spot, but it will look good on your next research proposal.”

“Think of the challenge! The team building!”

“Make sure you’ve packed a scented candle.”

Six top Darrian university scientists are on an expedition to Spume to investigate the (top secret) properties of certain materials. A Special Arm scientist on the fringes of the Star Trigger project leads the expedition, a vulcanologist, a seismologist, two materials specialists, and a technician are in support and looking forward to the university paid trip. Have any of them actually read up on Spume?

Volcanoes, seismic disturbances, outgassing plumes and of course the ever present fall of ash raining down on the surface. Survival may become more important than research.

“It will be good to get out of the office.”

Meta-history & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Rules: Mongoose Traveller 2nd Edition rules have been used with some reference to other sources where appropriate. This adventure requires the use of the Core Rulebook and Alien Module 3: Darrians (but note in the latter case the variance between skills between 1st and 2nd edition rules). Central Supply Catalogue is also useful. Other volumes have been referenced in the text but are not vital for play.

Reference has been made to two sequels to Ashfall which are not required to run this adventure but may be useful or of interest in providing further details.
