Description (Specifications)[edit]

Publisher Copyright Policies: Different Traveller products have been published by different publishers, each with their own fair use policies. Many out-of-print (OOP) Traveller products are now owned by FFE and have been re-released in compilation format through FFE. However, not all OOP Traveller products are available in such a format and a fan should always conduct their own research into the status of a product to prevent product piracy or the spread of illegal reproductions.
