Default D07 Double Adventure 7 - Stranded on Arden

I have been picking up various Classic Traveller material from RPGnow, and one of the things on there is the "Guide to Classic Traveller."

In in they talk about Double Adventure 7 - Stranded on Arden. The description says the following:
"Perruques is an encounter with a plague on a strange
world; Arden is a bureaucratic problem on the eve of war.

This Double Adventure was planned but never saw publication in this format."
This kind of implies that this adventure was published in another format. Anyone have any more information on this?

"Stranded on Arden" sounds familiar - maybe originally a JTAS Amber Zone?


EDIT: Not found in JTAS article index. Sorry, sounds familiar, but I dunno.

Stranded on Arden was in a third party magazine.

Plague of Perruques was in Traveller's Digest #10.

It was a pull-out center module in Adventure Gaming (Issue 6 - Dec 1981). I have a spare copy of the issue and the adventure if you're interested.

I believe it's essentially the same as the adventure Exit Visa in The Traveller Book.

Other way around. Stranded on Arden is the first version. Which produced some rather astonishing facts when an adventure set on an independent world was transposed to an Imperial world. That Arden has the authority to deny a visiting ship permission to leave its starport is fine; that Alell has the autority to deny ships permission to depart from the Imperial starport is IMO rather iffy...

Exit Visa - the bureaucracy dungeon crawl.

I don't know about anyone else, but I never played it because it just sounded like the most boring adventure ever.

It's been released in PDF and in the big floppy book Double Adventures.

However, it was reworked into Exit Visa, which is in The Traveller Book.

And then reworked into Zilan Wine in The Traveller Adventure.

It was. However, in playing it I inadvertently found out that one of my players -- a skillful negotiator and effective manager in real life -- strongly despises needless meaningless bureaucracy.

It's lousy as a first adventure, but not bad mid campaign. It's worth running once, in the same way Brasil or Soylent Green are worth watching once.
