(Traveller) JTAS Kickstarter - Funded & Stretch Goals Unlocked

The Kickstarter for the Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society has been fully funded, and stretch goals have started to be unlocked!


Thus far, an additional two volumes have been unlocked, meaning backers will now be receiving five Journals in a slipcase at no extra cost!

The Journal of the Travellers’ Aid Society was a magazine-format way, way back in the ‘Classic’ Traveller era of the early 80’s, a treasure trove of articles, introducing many of the concepts we take for granted in Traveller today. We are now bringing the Journal back as a set of supplements. To this end, we have been trawling through the Journals of yesteryear, selecting the best articles, and revising/re-writing them for the latest edition of the game, and adding a whole Leviathan's cargo hold worth of new material.

There is truly something for everyone in these books, from adventures that a referee can pull out at short notice when the Travellers jet off in an unexpected direction, to a wide range of new alien races that will be fully playable for those who want to try something a bit different. The Kickstarter page and its updates have a contents list of the first Journals, along a PDF download of the work-in-progress Volume One, which is being continually updated over the course of the Kickstarter.

You can even explore the new Delphinus starliner here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1990654819/traveller-rpg-the-journal-of-the-travellers-aid-so/posts/2446523

Whether you are exploring your own universe or are deep within Charted Space, we are hoping that every page of these new Journals will trigger new ideas, adventures and deep space explorations at every turn!
