Traveller: The New Era (1993-1995) was published by Game Designers' Workshop.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The game mechanics were changed to Game Designers' Workshop's standardized rules system which had originally appeared in the second edition of Twilight: 2000. It introduced the Virus and described the former area of the Third Imperium after interstellar society had completely collapsed. The game is often referred to as "TNE".

Overview Synopsis[edit]

The primary campaign setting was in the Reformation Coalition, though secondary settings included the Regency (former Domain of Deneb) and pocket empires were beginning to see support before GDW closed its doors. The game typically revolved around re-contact of the former Imperial planets after the effects of many years of no interstellar trade. Most worlds were massive graveyards with most valuables already taken by looters, and those worlds which survived tended to be low tech and very technophobic and xenophobic. TEDs - technologically elevated dictators - were a common adversary, consisting of a ruling elite which had access to a small cache of high tech weaponry with which they exercised control over a low tech population, but there were many variations on the theme, and many other possibilities existed; the Referee had a great deal of choice available for his game.
