The Family Background SRD is 3 pages long (excluding the ‘cover’ and the OGL page). The purpose of this SRD seems to be to allow players to fill in the gaps in the character generation process for Traveller characters. The Social Standing table is excellent and expands the basic table in UMP’s Basic Character Generation SRD. The simple way of working out how many Credits a month the character must spend to maintain the appearance of their Social Standing works very well and makes sense in the context of the Traveller universe. Creating the character’s family background requires a few straight forward dice rolls: roll for family structure, roll for grandparents, roll for any siblings then roll for family events. The family events table is probably the most useful part of the product and has some nice background ideas.
Overall a good product that does the job it set out to do.
