Patron Encounters is a collection of 34 adventure ideas for Mongoose Traveller games. Ideal for a quick game or an unexpected twist in an ongoing scenario, the adventure seeds in this book can be dropped easily into any Traveller setting or era. All material is compatible with any version of the rules.

Patron Encounters are presented in the time-honoured fashion - a person wants something doing and is willing to offer a reward for completing the task. Each patron encounter has several possible outcomes to keep the players guessing just what they have got themselves involved in this time.

Created by the Avenger Enterprises creative team plus long-time Traveller stalwarts from the Traveller Mailing List, Patron Encounters contains enough scenarios, odd jobs and misadventures to keep a Traveller group busy for many weeks.

Avenger Quote:
"For that impromptu game or the party who insist on wandering off the planned track, Patron Encounters is a lifejacket for harassed Referees. Featuring the talents of the Traveller Mailing List, people who have kept the game alive all these years, we think we have created a worthy successor to the classic 76 Patrons."

I cannot review this as I am a contributor, but I am adding this note in response to another reviewer. The confusion arises because before Mongoose released their version of Traveller, the ComStar/Avenger books were published under direct licence from [...]

Let me state right off that this is a good book, and worth getting, but the advertisement does not explain that this is just a re-release with a different cover of the previous Special Supplement 3: Patron Encounters and is the same book, verbatim. I [...]

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.
