Description Edit | History

From Inside Dust Jacket of Hardcover Version:

The Traveller Book is an outgrowth of a role-playing game born in 1977. It is a system of science fiction gaming simple enough for an evening's boisterous entertainment, rich enough for years of adventurous campaigning.

This book provides a framework of rules for creating starships, worlds, and interstellar empires. Specific chapters deal with equipment, vehicles, and the details of this universe of the future. The rules also instruct the reader in the techniques of generating unique fictional characters with specific attributes and skills, and the means of exploring—and surviving—the fantastic realms of the future.

As role-players, readers assume the identities of their imaginary characters, seeing the future through those eyes and reacting as the captain of a starship, a down-and-out spacehand, and Imperial courier, or some other future adventurer.

This book contains everything needed to play Traveller, except paper, pencil, and two six-sided dice.

More Information Edit | History

From "Workshop News", Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society (Issue 13), page 48, 1982:

The biggest project at hand is our new series of hardcover Traveller books. This new range kicks off at Origins with The Traveller Book which includes Books 1, 2, 3, and portions of Book 0, along with new and old adventures and useful appendices—all under one cover. Traveller veterans should be able to survive without the new book (there are no substantive changes), but it is expected to become the new starter set for new players.
