CT-G03-Traveller- Azhanti High Lightning
by James T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/22/2014 22:46:59
Rated medium for use in recreating the game.

The rules are very well done, scanned with OCR and clear and easy to read. This also applies to the accompanying supplement. However the deck plans in the supplement have been replaced by what appears to be recreated versions done in something similar to MSPaint. These are very harsh colour-wise and do not have the identifying numbers to match the text descriptions. This actually makes it impossible to play the included scenarios as working out the starting placement is a matter of guesswork.

There is an accompanying file of the deck plans, again missing the identification numbers.

The counters are generally fine for play, a little blurry but mostly usable. The main exception are the black on red Zhodani counters. The identification numbers are impossible to read and the icons are very blurry.

CT-G04-Traveller Fifth Frontier War
by James T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/22/2014 18:06:28
A medium review, generally due to the suitability of the components in recreating the game.

No box art is included in the download.

The Rules are of excellent quality, and appear to be OCR scans. The charts however are image scans, but are fine to use in play.

There is a separate higher resolution map included in the download, this is of playable quality, but needs work if used to recreate an aesthetically pleasing version of the game.

Counters are fairly poor quality, they are playable and just readable, but are obviously low quality and not for use to recreate the game as it was. Of the most concern to playing the game, some of the Unit Identifying Numbers are so blurry they are unreadable.

CT-G00-Traveller- Imperium
by James T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/22/2014 17:42:24
A medium review for this product, generally due to its suitability in recreating the game.

No images for the box are included. This is disappointing for those that want to recreate the set.

The rules are of excellent quality, they are OCR scans of the rules and include the later editions' 'History of the Imperium'.

There are two maps included with the rules that are for reference only, they are unreadable and not suitable for playing on. This is rectified by the inclusion of a second file that contains a higher quality scan of the 1990 map. This scan is playable and readable. Unfortunately, only this one map is included, the second map of 2005, that is included in unreadable form with the rules, is not available in a higher resolution scan.

The tokens are a mix of hit and miss, generally they are usable, however, the low resolution scans make them unsuitable to recreating the board game, and are more suited as a reference to an existing set.

CT-G06- Dark Nebula
by James T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/22/2014 17:16:36
I'll offer a medium review for this product, mostly due to the suitability of the download in recreating the original game.

It is disappointing that the cover image is only some 200x300 pixels and unsuitable for recreating a box for your recreated game.
The rules are clear and appear to be without error, rather than image scans, the rules appear to be retyped or OCR scans.
The maps themselves, while low resolution, are clear and easy to read. Even the hex numbers are clear enough to read.
Only a low score on the quality of the scan of the chits in particular. Blurry and very low resolution, very disappointing for a paid product.

Overall, this version of the game can be used to recreate the game in a basic way, that at minimum is playable. However, the aesthetics of the game if recreated using the components included in this paid download will be disappointing.

T4 Marc Miller's Traveller
by Rory H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/10/2014 05:39:23
This was never quite as bad as critics made it out to be - although the core task system being roll-under does create some issues in the game (the infamous rolling of ‘half dice’, and the increased emphasis of Characteristic scores of skills). There is a bit of errata too, and some of the text needs repeat reading to make sense of it.

There are, however, some very attractive colour plates of starship imagery in here, and while the rest of the layout isn’t flash - it’s not weak either. The cover is nice too and, at it’s core, this is actually a pretty good edition of the game to base star-travelling adventures from. Character generation is fun (as in the best Traveller editions) and the world and starship generators are pretty much the same as in all editions.

If you want a more concise attempt at an authentic version of Marc Miller’s personal vision of his own game than T5, then this will serve you well.

Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society. Issue No.1-24
by Mike O. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/24/2014 18:58:26
This is a piece of nostalgia worth buying. if you played Traveller in the original boxed set (ol`grognard edition), you will have probably perused a least one JTAS and enjoyed at least one article or adventure from it. It is a prodigious resource for GMs & players both old & new.

Some of the articles require revising depending on your version being played (I`m using the Mongoose Traveller edition in my campaign) and some articles are outdated or have been surpassed by more modern rule sets (Remember: Traveller has been in one iteration or another since 1977!).

None the less, it still has a cornucopia of adventures, articles, primers, devices, equipment, weapons, ship classes, deck plans, variant rules & more for anyone who plays or GMs this game.

For example, JTAS #1 contains the classic adventure "Ànnic Nova" which has been reprinted as an official Traveller double adventure 1 (which are hard to find). Each subsequent issue of JTAS has a least one adventure (full or seed) to wet the appetite of any GM.

As well, there are new ships or variants to use. A player wanted a more distinct looking scout courier, so I used the Serpent class scout courier (complete with deck plans from JTAS 2.)

All in all, it worth a look at. If anything, it can serve as inspiration for GMs of this RPG.

CT-TTB-The Traveller Book
by Rory H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/10/2014 06:05:17
Some of the ideas and technology within the book has dated, and it could do with more character options to match the variety of later versions. However, all this said, as an example of concise efficacy and innovation, the game remains a true classic.

T5 Imperiallines 06
by Robert J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/23/2014 17:44:13
This is a little pricey for a 15 page PDF but the content is good. I really like the detail about Regina including a world map. If you're a busy referee planet detail is always a time saver. I would be willing to rate this with five stars if it was longer or cost a little less because the content is good.

T2000 v1 Twilight: 2000
by William H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/07/2014 02:08:00
1st Ed T2K - a wonderful, if a bit convoluted, character generation. It provides a bit of backstory (tho' less than Traveller), and gives percentile skills, and provide the appropriate competencies. I originally got this in dead tree back in 1984... and I loved it. It had some convoluted rules for armor and gunfire interaction, but it gave a real feel for the combats. And it made combat undesirable yet fun. The art is mostly pencils derived from army stock photos, and the gear is pretty much bog-standard 1980's issue. (They got the early 90's gear dead on - but by 2000, it was well outdated.) The setting makes a great "what if", but many of the assumptions are now quite wrong. Game needs 4d6 and 2d10. Note that mechanically, this is a precursor to the later GDW House System, but is not part of that system. If you ignore the background, this game can be used for any mid 90's US Army actions one cares to play, and with some careful attention, back to the 'Nam war.

Twilight: 2000 v2.2 [BUNDLE]
by Charles B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2014 16:49:59
Pretty good price to pick up the full Version 2 of the Twilight 2000 RPG collection of books. However, this is missing one Version 2 book and that is the "Infantry Weapons of the World" which isn't carried anyplace else on this website. That is the only book that the DriveThru crew hasn't uploaded for the GDW game system. So you will be forced to use the V1 weapons guide or the guide in the rule book for Version 2 and go from there or you will have to look around on Ebay for an actual physical copy.

Traveller5 Starships & Spacecraft-1 TWO Deck Plan Set For Kickstarter
by Steven R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/13/2014 12:04:20
Nice, clean deck plans of iconic Traveller starships. Having the files provided in large-format sizes is nice for those of us that have access to wide-format printers. The blank plans are great for those of us that want to give our players a not-quite-standard ship for the campaign.

CT- DT-Deluxe Traveller
by Herb S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/08/2014 18:08:21
Excellent product for fans of the classic "Little Black Books" version of Traveller, first released in the late 1970's and updated circa 1980), containing all the rules and frameworks for the "OTU" (Original Traveller Universe) and the large body of supplements, adventures and extensions/modifications that came after. As to the product itself, by and large the scans are excellent. There are a few visual artifacts here and there but they are small and don't hinder readability or accessibility of the materials. Most importantly, the few small smudges or occasional skewed letter do not hinder text-searches through the body of the documents for quick-reference. Frankly, nothing can ever replace paper for the ease of flipping back and forth quickly between sections, but being able to search the PDF files for relevant text makes up for it. And of course, one is always free to print out the documents for personal use if that is your preference. Bear in mind that the documents are watermarked (unobtrusively), to prevent piracy. Given how inexpensive these products are, especially compared to trying to locate and buy vintage originals, there is no excuse not to simply buy these legally now that they are so readily available.

Tl; dr: very good/excellent scans of a GREAT classic space RPG. Highly recommended to old school tabletop gamers as well as newbies looking for something different to try!
