The mission: A covert reconnaissance deep into uncharted territory beyond the borders of the new Sylean empire.

Only skill and determination will see the crew safely home through the perils of unexplored space. The Long Way Home is a complete adventure for Marc Milller's Traveller, set in Milieu 0. Each section of the adventure is presented in the easy-to-play nugget format, complete with star system diagrams, planetary surface maps, starship deck plans, and necessary structural layouts.
