Description:

Sekai’s augmented reflexes saved his life yet again, as the silent White Wing swooped down at him, talons extended, mouth opening to deliver its disorienting scream. He dropped to the ice-encrusted snow, while his pistol, the big Rawlings Blackbird, seemed to leap into hands. His aim dropped to the White Wing’s bird-like head as it oriented on him, his finger tightening on the trigger as the beast tore loose its scream.

2300AD is set in a hard science world, as mankind struggles to gain and maintain footholds on over two dozen alien worlds. Nearly 300 years after a near-apocalypse, mankind has taken to the stars, only to find others already there, waiting. While these aliens are a constant worry, or even threat, the struggle for life on the frontier grips most colonists, while the worlds and nations of the Core turn ever inward, lost in digital dreams and augmented realities.

2300AD features a richly-developed hard SF universe, with ships spinning against the night, and only the faster-than-light drive, the stutterwarp, a true violation of physics as we know it. Airships, helicopters and hovercraft are common sights on the worlds of the frontier, while spaceplanes and rockets carry explorers and traders to orbit, and from there the great starships carry them across the stars.

2300AD features expanded character generation rules, nearly three dozen world maps, rules for cybernetics, genetic-engineering, new aliens,  new equipment, weapons, armour, vehicles and spacecraft.

The Traveller Core Rulebook is required to play 2300AD.

Teils nett aber teilweise auch nutzlos. VORSICHT SPOILER-ALARM !!! Als 2300AD (bzw. seine Vorgänger Traveller 2300AD) raus kamen, war ich aus dem Häuschen. Ich habe mir das Original schicken lassen und bin für die Box 400 km weit gefahren. Ihr könnt [...]

The appearance could have been improved with more art, etc, and there are some glaring editorial errors throughout (equations being mistyped, etc). Yet, all this said, this is an indispensable Traveller book and setting for any gamer who wants to get [...]

I am really grateful for seeing the 2300AD source book, as it reminds me of a campaign setting which I used to think was excellent, whilst being visualised through the prism of the today's Traveller rules. For Mongoose to fuse original (old-school) [...]

SUMMARY A respectable update to a classic hard sci-fi setting. What it lacks in nitty-gritty details in some areas it makes up for breadth of coverage. THE BAD NEWS FIRST If you're looking for a lavishly-illustrated book like the original, you're [...]

First Impressions 2300 AD is an impressive 312 page book with a color cover and black and white interior illustrations. 2300 AD is a campaign source book for Traveller and you will need the core rules from Mongoose to make use of it. If you intend to [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
