Cluster Book 1: Bowman Arm is a complete game supplement for the Traveller role-playing game. Full stats are included for T20 and Classic Traveller, but this rules-light supplement is suitable for use with any version of Traveller, or indeed with other rules sets. There is a version published for Traveller Hero as well.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Bowman Arm is part of Avenger Enterprises’ "Marches 1110" series. It details a region of space within the Spinward Marches in the turbulent years just after the Fifth Frontier War.

The Bowman Arm is a little-travelled segment of the Spinward Main. If trade links are pushed through it will open up new regions for trade, but there are many obstacles in the way. Hostile locals, renegades from the Outworld Coalition bent on continuing the war and an unhealthy degree of commercial rivalry all combine to make the Arm a lawless place where fortune and disaster are a single bad decision apart.

The Bowman Arm is an ideal setting for a Traveller campaign. It contains an overview of the region and the worlds within it, plus complete details on the world of Walston with a wealth of adventure material set both on Walston and in the whole of the Arm.

The Bowman Arm is supported by Avenger adventures and supplements set within the Arm and in the surrounding region, creating a modular adventure setting that will keep a Traveller game running for months!
