Gateway Domain Cluster Book 2: Starfall is a complete game supplement for the Traveller role-playing game. Full stats are included for T20 and Classic Traveller, but this rules-light supplement is suitable for use with any version of Traveller, or indeed with other rules sets.

Starfall is part of Avenger Enterprises’ ‘Gateway 993’ range. It details a cluster of worlds beyond the border of Imperial space. The Starfall Cluster is subject to the conflicting interests of minor local powers and greater but more distant ones, yet each world retains its own individual character.

The Starfall Cluster contains a mix of very diverse worlds. Each one is presented along with several adventure seeds, along with a number of more general adventures that can be used anywhere.

The world of Starfall itself is presented in great detail, from First Landing Starport to the many city-states and the wildernesses in between. Key personalities, factions and their agendas are all dealt with, along with a detailed adventure set in the Starfall outback. Finally, the package contains a multi-part adventure: Counterweights and Measures. In this adventure the characters are pitted against hostile corporations which threaten the free spirit of the Starfall cluster. Direct opposition is impossible, but a combination of diplomacy, guile and stealth might yet thwart the expansion of the Glimmerdrift Trade Consortium.

Counterweights and Measures will take the travellers on a journey across the cluster, from roughneck mining colonies to the rarefied atmosphere of the courtroom. Adventurers will brave the rigors of airship travel as well as more commonplace starships as they seek out the individuals who can preserve the freedom of the cluster. Ranged against the travellers are the powerful firms of the Glimmerdrift Trade Consortium. Some of them play hard but fair – and some just play hard.
