Description (Specifications)[edit]

When the crew of the merchant vessel March Harrier befriends a wolf-like alien Vargr in the underground city of Leedor, they have no reason to suspect that they are beginning a quest for the secret of a jeweled alien ornament... a quest that will take them to an asteroid mining settlement, to frontier trading stations, and to dozens of exotic worlds. But the ornament is intended for more then mere decoration and the adventuring crew is soon marked by the extra-legal security apparatus of the giant Tukera Lines megacorporation. The crew and their Vargr companion need every skill at their disposal to discover the true secret of the ornament.

The Traveller Adventure takes readers on an excursion into the universe of the far future. The scene is set with the introduction of the ship and its crew; included are complete descriptions of their skills and abilities. These travellers set out with the alien Vargr through the teeming underground warrens of Leedor, the cold and lonely asteroid belt, and the trade routes between systems - all drawn in detail as locales for pursuing the startling secret of the Vargr's artifact. Each shifting scene of the excursion is described for the readers and filled with clues and surprises.
