Fast Courier is a complete supplement for the Traveller role-playing game. Full stats are included for Mongoose Traveller, but this rules-light supplement is suitable for use with any version of Traveller, or indeed with other rules sets. This supplement contains several adventure seeds set in the Spinward Marches, which could be used anywhere in the Traveller Universe.
This supplement details the 200-ton Fast Courier, a Jump-3 ship originally designed for the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service but now used throughout the Imperium. Some are in private hands, used for movement of high priority and secure cargos and on subsidized routes.
This is an ideal ship for characters wanting a vessel a little different from the norm. Full Traveller statistics are provided as well as deckplans, a registry of Fast Couriers in the Spinward Marches, and 7 adventure seeds for merchant campaigns set in the Marches using the Fast Courier. The vessel is designed for player use as well as a ship that players may encounter. It is usually seen carrying mail or priority, secure and hazardous cargos. In addition, details are given on the exploration version of the Fast Courier used by the Imperial Scout Service.
"The idea behind Golden Age Starships is simple: when the characters acquire a ship or encounter one, the Referee needs all the details, deckplans and data there in one place for immediate use."
"The Golden Age Starships series centers on starships that characters may encounter or possess. The series arose from the need for material for T20 players who do not have access to older deckplans and details of Classic Traveller starships. The first in the series is the 200-ton Fast Courier, a vessel designed to fill the gap between X-Boats and Scout/Couriers in the Scout service."
