Vampire Fleets is a sourcebook for Traveller.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Throughout the bleak nightmare of the Collapse, long dark shapes of warships, scoured of organic life, still prowled the now-lonely space lanes and cast their deadly shadows over half a thousand worlds. Imbued with a malignant intelligence, and a taste for apocalyptic violence, the vampire fleets methodically finished the work that the first wave of Virus infection had so haphazardly begun. After seventy-five years, humankind finally stood backed against the edge of the abyss, only one more short step separating them from oblivion.

Passive defense is no longer enough. If humankind is to reclaim the stars, it will have to be past the ruptured hulls and shattered computer brains of the vampires. Defeating the vampire fleets is a task of nearly impossible scope and difficulty, but the journey of a thousand miles by an entire species begins with a small step by a small band of people.

The source material is broken down into three important sections.

  • Vampire Fleets: What motivates them, where they are encountered, their capabilities, behaviors, strengths and weaknesses.
  • The Planet Promise: A world completely controlled by Virus-infected machines, its working starport a vital link in the chain of the vampire highway.
  • Robot Design: Complete rules on their construction as well as motivation and behaviour of Virus-infected robots.

Plus a complete three-adventure campaign. Each adventure illustrates and draws on the material in one part of the sourcebook. Together they put the players at the center of a struggle which can break the power of the Vampire Fleets forever and change the course of human history.
