Star Trader is a Solo Trading Game developed for Traveller by Paul Elliott.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The aim of Star Trader is to travel from world to world buying cargoes as cheaply as possible then selling them elsewhere for as high a price as possible. But this is Traveller, not 'fantasy stocks and shares' and the great appeal of solo gaming is the interaction with Traveller's high technology, its starships, exotic planets and interesting NPCs.

The Star Trader game fills the player's journey through the cosmos with these events and encounters, putting him into predicaments that his character will have to resolve before the game can continue. To some extent the encounters are sets and backdrops to the trading game, but frequent events force the character to respond and the player will need to refer to the task and combat rules in order to tackle these situations. Of course, it's this interaction with the Traveller setting that gets our juices flowing.
