Description:

The Minor Races line details some of the many life form inhabiting your Science Fiction Traveller game. Unlike the Major Races who discovered Jump Drive technology and began exploring, the Minor Races have rarely ventured farther than a single system or planet. Of the numberless stars, planets and moons; many have hosted unique species and civilizations yet to be discovered!

The volume details The Neuralon; often called "Neuralon Seductors" by outsiders.  The Neuralon are willowy, curiously seductive, non-human, bipedal pleasure-lovers. The Neuralon reputation within the Imperium is based around their medical knowledge, particularly in the area of analgesia, anaesthetics and in the treatment and management of both acute and chronic pain, and in luxury technological items of all sorts.

This peaceful race has evolved to be highly sensitive to those around them, using that sensitivity to create and broadcast pacifying pheromones and adjusting their own body language and vocal range to tones and flexions that quickly calm and pacify the aggressors. This automatic, uncontrollable pursuit of appeasing and pacifying aggressors through virtually undetectable means leads to a lifestyle that is monopolised by sensory seduction. 

Their home planet, Neuralos, is a holiday destination for the extremely rich and powerful or for the decadent pleasure-seekers. The pleasures they can provide, from food, clothing, drinks, beds, entertainment or mere pampering cannot be matched. Oddly, (to an offworlder, that is) the seedier forms of entertainment do not exist outside startown. The Neuralon find it emotionally upsetting to see the degradation of enforced slavery or prostitution. What is more useful to offworlders  is that the Neuralon medical capabilities, growing from their natural urge to appease and aid those they meet, exceed all expectations, and are on the cutting edge of technological advancement.

As a species and society, their strength is also a drawback. They do not build armed warships and are completely reliant on the Imperium and hired mercenaries for their defence: the very thought of inflicting pain on another sapient creature causes them severe distress, triggering their own, reactive-defence measures. As a result, when making their way in the galaxy, they either take jobs as medics or as entertainers, or sometimes as advocates, as many other jobs involve too much pain. There can never be a Neuralon empire or conquered world; but for the same reasons they cannot force their will on another, others find it difficult to force their will on the Neuralon.

Learn more about this race, their homeworld and some of their advanced technology in this eleven page PDF.

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.
