Double Adventure 1 for Classic Traveller.



This adventure deals with a pyramid structure complex on the surface of Yorbund (Spinward Marches 0703), which the travellers encounter and investigate after spotting it on scanners from orbit on the mostly unexplored world.

Annic Nova[edit]

A derelict starship is encountered in orbit around a small, little visited, gas giant in the Keng (Spinward Marches 2405) system. It may well be the same vessel that has been using unauthorised transmission frequencies in other systems in the previous couple of years and is the subject of a Travellers' Aid Society Advisory Report.

Meta-history & Background[edit]

Shadows was used as the Traveller Tournament at WinterWar 1980

Annic Nova was rewritten from an original version that appeared in Issue 1 of The Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society. See the ship class entry Annic Nova for more information on the vessel.

As with all the Double Adventure books, the book has two front covers with the two adventures printed starting from each end of the book and therefore upside down relative to each other and each with their own page numbering.
