Big Pharma Plans for Traveller

Here’s a set of plans I created for a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant using Robert Pearce’s geomorphs. There are two basement levels and a ground floor, with two points of entry. The plans are fairly generic so you could use them for any kind of medical or scientific base. I printed them out on A1 paper for my players to use with miniatures.

This location featured in a homegrown adventure written for my current campaign. The adventure was called ‘Air Zamine’, a nod to a certain 90’s film

I’ll include PDF and PNG files further down in this blog post for you to download and print.

Printing Traveller Plans

I like using 28mm miniatures when I’m Refereeing Traveller and I’ve found a cheap method of printing A1 and A0 paper plans for less than £2 each.

For my US friends, A1 is about 23 x 33 inches, A0 is 33 x 47 inches, and £2 is about $2.50. I’ll admit up front that this blog post is aimed at those of us in the UK, but hopefully you can find somewhere similar for printing your own plans over on that side of the planet.

The deck plan preview you can see on the left is the Amun Ra, a modified 100-ton Scout/Courier I designed using Classic Traveller Book 5: High Guard, my favourite Traveller ship design system. I drew the plans in Microsoft Visio, dropping in some Traveller Geomorphs from Robert Pearce.

I’ll include a PDF for the Amun Ra at the end of this post plus another bonus PDF. Feel free to print and use in your own games.

Traveller Psionics: Break/Fix

I love Mongoose Traveller and I say that as a diehard Classic Traveller fan. I started playing Traveller in the early 80s and I still use my Little Black Books.

I’ll admit I was a bit sceptical when I first saw the big shiny Mongoose books and their fancy pants artwork but I bought the Core Rulebook anyway. As soon as I started reading I recognised its clear kinship to Classic Traveller and I soon realised that my house rules had been heading in the same direction anyway. 

But, Mongoose Traveller Psionics rules are broken. (Well, I guess Cepheus broke them first.)

Let me explain. I’m afraid we need a short history lesson. There will also be number crunching.
