Mongoose Traveller: Secret of the Ancients 2nd is a Mongoose Publishing product.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

A complete campaign of truly epic proportions, Secrets of the Ancients takes a core theme from the original Traveller, and fully updates it to reveal the powers behind the galaxy in a way you have never seen them before. Never has a Traveller book truly been loaded with such secrets.

Written by Gareth Hanrahan, Secrets of the Ancients will start the players off in a familiar setting within the Spinward Marches, but quickly escalate to take them into times, places, and dimensions they barely dreamed of. This is Traveller roleplaying at its very best.
