The Players' Manual is a core reference book for MegaTraveller.
- It contains the basic information any player needs to prepare for and participate in Traveller situations, scenarios, and adventures.
- Intended as a reference for every participant, it includes: character generation, enhanced character generation, skills, task resolution, experience, personal combat, and psionics.
In less than a minute, the fortunes of the Imperium have turned. An assassin has cut down the emperor and his heirs in one bold stroke and thrown the largest, most stable interstellar empire in history into chaos. There are many candidates for the empty throne, and without agreement on their qualifications, the worlds of the Imperium are divided in their allegiances. The assassin himself controls three rebellious sectors. The emperor's nephew has assumed the throne. Fleet battles rage throughout the empire. Alien forces, sensing weakness, have crossed the Imperium's borders. Sector after sector falls to the chaos of rebellion and invasion.
Traveller sets an ongoing drama of role-playing adventure in this shattered Imperium. Players travel between star systems, taking sides in the rebellion, fighting for their cause while fighting to stay alive. The dangers of space and the dangers of a shattered Imperium provide never-ending excitement in the far future.
The Player's Manual: This book is a basic compilation of Traveller rules and concepts for the individual player. It includes character generation, combat resolution, psionics, and tasks (the key to using all of Traveller's rules systems).
