Traveller 5th

Traveller 5th or T5 is version five of the Traveller rules by FFE's counting.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Marc Miller had several fresh ideas for the new version and included the following features:

  • "Life Pursuits" as a mechanism for gaining skill in a particular field, post-career.
  • Character generation preserves the Traveller life path feel, and fully accommodates nonhuman characters.
  • Materials technology and weapon design is based on data from earlier Traveller rulesets, but with less complexity than TNE/T4.
  • Power supplies are more like MT's than CT's or T4's.
  • Bits of CT and FFS2 are in starship design, which also takes a page from MT and extends down into smallcraft and vehicles. It's easier to build a small starship in T5 than Classic Traveller's High Guard, Traveller The New Era's Fire, Fusion, & Steel, or T4's Quick Ship Design System (QSDS), but more involved than Classic Traveller's Book 2 (Starships).
  • The TL range is similar to MT.
  • TNE's concept of Maintenance Points is evolved into a way to appraise equipment quality in general.
  • A description-based equipment design system allows things from other rulesets to be easily imported into T5 for use.
