Mongoose - The Travellers' Aid Society (TAS)

The The Travellers' Aid Society is the Community Content Program, which allows you, as a writer or creator, to use the Mongoose Traveller Intellectual Property.

Special Agreement with Traveller RPG Wiki

The Traveller RPG Wiki has permission of Matthew Sprange and Mongoose Publishing to use images and text in a limited manner subject to review. Limited in this context is to quote about a page of text (several paragraphs) and/or up to several images on any articles. This policy is subject to review and denial at any time. Mongoose Traveller material quoted in the wiki may not be copied or reproduced outside of the wiki without the explicit permission of Mongoose Publishing.

Individual author copyrights

The official policy for material written by individuals (i.e. fan created material) is that you must have explicit permission from the artist, author, or other creator to post it here. You should create (or find) a page for the author (e.g. Thomas Jones-Low). You will need to make sure the author's page has the permission template posted on their page. If the author is also a registered user on the Traveller RPG Wiki, you may use their user page.

Wiki Copyright Policy Goals

The goal of the Traveller RPG Wiki is to never outright or wholesale copy from any published Traveller materials, but to use illustrative and clever images and quotes from published Traveller canon to build a system reference here at the wiki as well as a setting reference for the Official Traveller Universe. So, go out and buy the original publications from Far Future Enterprises or an officially licensed Traveller publisher.


Publisher copyright policies: Different Traveller products have been published by different publishers, each with their own fair use policies. Many out-of-print Traveller products are now owned by Far Future Enterprises and have been re-released in compilation format through Far Future Enterprises. However, not all Traveller products are available in such a format and contributors should always conduct their own research into the status of a product to prevent product piracy or the spread of illegal reproductions.

Publishers and products not explicitly mentioned in this section are assumed to be under copyright of their original publisher or owner. Please respect these copyrights.
