Space RPG's

There are tools and scenarios that will be helpful for any space RPG. Just make a few changes and you can utilize this website for your galaxy/genre/time frame

Why Traveller?

Well Traveller is from my era - before Star Wars but after Star Trek. I Like Role Playing Games in general because you have to use creativity and imagination to make things happen. Something you don't get from first person shooter games. Everytime I ran the game, there was always some interesting scenario the players would come up and it took craft and quick thinking to work thru some of the interesting twists that the human element added to a game.

Years ago I played D&D - was generally the Dungeon Master and had fun doing that. But being a science fiction fan I always enjoyed the thought of doing a role playing game in the future. And that was when I found Traveller, the original version. I played it off and on over the years. And my kids liked both D&D and traveller. Now I don't play as frequently, but I enjoy creating scenarios and tools for persons playing Traveller, mostly for the referee's use. Plus I wanted to learn some new programming languages - and why not have fun doing it? Hats off to Marc Miller for his creation.
