Sources are the references from which AAB Library Data articles are derived.

  • A reference may be any one of a number of source types from published works, to fan authors, to unpublished notes or drafts, to Marc Miller's latest ideas.
  • The Traveller RPG Wiki is open to any kind of contribution and is mandated from FFE to be as inclusionary as possible.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is important to make sure that as many references as possible are noted here at the wiki. It's important because it's the right choice, but also because it makes it easier for future authors to research what exists and how to expand the future story line. The wiki is very much a source reference document for the greater Traveller community.
