Traveller Version

The Milieus are an artifact of the Traveller publication history. Each published version of Traveller included (or expanded upon) a period in the future history of Traveller.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Milieu Categories section contains full articles, usually published with the selected version. The purpose of this to organize articles for a player group to be able to find (or exclude) articles if the information is (or is not) specific to the era in which they are playing.

Each Milieu covers roughly between ten and twenty years (...or more), enough time for some interesting events in the lives of the characters within the campaign, and the campaign itself. And there are no precisely-defined year borders for the beginning and end of a Milieu category.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Milieu vs. Timeline[edit]

In contrast, the Time line categories cover much broader (and larger) spans of time. The Time line articles are Year articles, each of which has a short reference to events (and links to the full articles). But the time line is much more precise about when each era ends and begins.
