The Referee's Gaming Kit is a combination referee's screen and and adventure with two "folio" Adventures. The screen came in two parts, one for combat charts and the other for more combat including encounters.

Meta-history and Background[edit]

Notes in the introductory paragraphs include the following:

"The referee's screen also incorporates the suggestions received from many gamers since the original release of MegaTraveller. Because, of this, the referee's screen contains simplified restatements of certain MegaTraveller rules. These slight adjustments have been found to streamline play somewhat, and are highly recommended."

"The referee's screen also corrects certain misprints in the original rules."

Parrot Dragons swoop and soar overhead while the characters refuel their Scout/Courier starship from the oceans of Deyis II. Located in Zarushagar Sector on the border between two rival Imperial factions, Deyis II is an empty world with a bizarre climate. Many centuries ago, the inhabitants of an entire colony vanished here, never to be heard from again. What do the characters learn that leads them to believe the parrot dragons may hold the answer to this and many more mysteries that lurk on Deyis II? Find out in the two folio adventures included in this gaming kit.
