Mongoose Traveller is a new set of Traveller rules first published in 2008. The rules are designed to harken back to the Classic Traveller days, using simple rules (the 2d6) but updated to take advantage of 30 years of evolution in RPG design.

Description[edit]

True to their word, the rules followed the Classic Traveller design, using 2d6 for most character creation and resolution mechanics. It was updated with an events table for failing a survival roll in character creation. It also included a task system (similar to MegaTraveller) for ease of resolving combat and other interesting events.

Meta-history & Background[edit]

When the Mongoose Publishing announcement was made in August 2007, there was some controversy in the Traveller community regarding the fate of the other, then current, Traveller publishers. Over the course of a few weeks, and many different discussion forums, it was revealed that Marc had decided to let the official Traveller licenses for QuikLink Interactive, Avenger Enterprises, and Comstar Games expire, most of which would expire in 2008 or 2009. The licenses for Steve Jackson Games and Far Future Enterprises would remain.

Mongoose Publishing announced the publication of the Mongoose Traveller Main Rulebook in April 2008.

Bibliography & Ludography Selection (Game Books)[edit]
