The Kinunir is an early Classic Traveller adventure.
  • It is adventure number one published in 1979 CE.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

A mysterious gentleman approaches your group with a proposition-obtain certain trade secrets from a local shipyard, and earn up to Cr 200,000. Easy, right? Maybe, but the job leads your group across several parsecs, into conflict with the Imperial authorities, and onto the trail of a 1200-ton starship.

The Kinunir is a detailed adventure for Traveller characters, complete with four distinct situations, and array of rumors to lead the characters on, and deck plans and details for an Imperial Battle Cruiser.
