Think the hot jock fighter and starship pilots have all the glory?

Think again.

Mercenary is a detailed expansion for the Traveller game, and the first in the line of Core Supplements. With advanced options for Soldier and Marine characters, any player with an interest in infantry combat will find something of value in this manual.

With new weapons and tactics, career options, and the lucrative mercenary ticket system, Mercenary puts ground combat front and centre.

When I purchased this book I thought it was going to be more like the original Mercenary book. However, it was not. The thing I liked most about the original was the in depth treatment of creating military characters such as Army or Marines. This book [...]

Once again, Mongoose has re-issued and re-detailed a previous CT era book, in their own image. A perfect score here is avoided by the various weapons data errata (ranges that are way short for TL8 Mortars for example, having used them, they can get 3.5kms [...]

The PDF itself shows Mongoose's disregard for quality control; it is at least better than the paper copies. There are numerous layout errors that can be caught by an experienced editor in 5 seconds (I know I did), including issues with chapter headers [...]

This book continues Mongoose's policy of reusing the names of the original Traveller books but failing to emulate them in any way. The book is softback but seems well bound, black and white interior with illustrations that are a matter of taste. The [...]

The much awaited Mercenary by Mongoose Publishing hits most of the marks: it has new character generation, a process for creating mercenary tickets and a whole host of other useful information. But the one area that lets this book down is the weapons [...]

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.
