Meta-history & Background (Dossier)[edit]

It is an early Classic Traveller supplement.

  • It was de-canonized several times and doesn't officially exist in the OTU according to FFE, but fans still enjoy it.

1981 CE was near the end of the Paranoia Press Traveller run. The back of this book announced two books that were not later seen:

  1. Aliens & Artifacts
    1. Four new races (mentioned in the library data in the Vanguard Reaches and Beyond) with complete character generation systems and artifacts and weapons used by them.
  2. Ryker's Catalogue of Arms Vol. 1, Nr. 1
    1. First edition in a continuing series of military and civilian weapons, vehicles and other equipment for use with Traveller.
