Default (Mongoose) Traveller Open Day - May 1st

On Saturday May 1st, Mongoose is throwing open its doors for fans of Traveller. Taking place at our offices in Swindon, it is completely free to attend, and everyone is welcome, whether you have played Traveller before or not!

Doors open at 9:00, and games begin at 9:30am, finishing at 6pm - and we have some special games lined up for you!

District 268
At the southern edge of the Spinward Marches you're not in the Imperium and you're not in the Sword Worlds but you are in the no-man's land in between. The Redemption is old, so old that her papers don't go back to her launch and it's only will-power, speed tape and the handiwork of various engineers of various abilities over the years that holds her together, well that and a crew with nothing to lose. That's where you come in. The crew of the Redemption, like the passengers, only board her because they have no other option. Bad debts, death sentences, paternity suits, deep-felt shame - all of these are reasons to run from your life.

Fires of Rebellion
Coming out of cold storage after light years of travel on board the Costaguana, the Colonial Marines arrive at a colony world under rebellion, and will have to defend Earthís interests from the rebels. However, after their first victory, matters rapidly become more complicated as it becomes clear that this colony is threatened by more than just unhappy colonists.

Storm Warning
Quiet times require quiet missions and this one looked easy. Jumping into an interdicted system owned by your employers with two passengers and some cargo can only be easy, right? There's a storm coming and only the crew of the Angels Share can stop it...

The House on the Hill
On the planet Tivid lies a secret few could have guess existed, but for the crew of the Angels Share it's simply about getting their latest passengers safely to port. With a virtually desolate planet, a few extreme sports nutters and a mysterious group of aliens, it should be a relatively simple ride...

Judge Dredd: Simpson
Another day on the streets. A bus load of Tex-Cit tourists has gotten lost (presumed hijacked), a shootout at the Meg One Bank and the Juves Without a Block were causing trouble again. Then the call came in, 99 Red, Judge Simpson in trouble. A senior street judge, a thirty year man, Simpson was a tough judge but one willing to share time with younger street jocks. Just the other day he was regaling you with a tale of criminal ineptitude where he had gotten a call where some would be ARV artists had phoned ahead to a bank and told them to have their cash ready for their withdrawal ten minutes later. And now he is in trouble and you are the closest unit to his last known location.

Hammer Slammers: The Rangoon Incident
It was supposed to be a simple job. A small force sent to rattle sabres in some distant territory of some backwater government on a backwater world. No combat expected, a perfect low fee job, allowing the newest recruits to be slowly brought up to speed with the unitís SOPs. Your small section was sent to guard a tiny mining facility, unfortunately your employers had misjudged their opposition and you found yourselves cut off from the rest of the unit when the tanks rolled over the border and headed towards the regionís capital. Now you have to get back to your own unit unless you want to find yourselves prisoners and out of a job on your first time out.

The Three Faces of God
System Defence in the remote Penelope system (Spinward Marches/Five Sisters 0533) have received a garbled distress message from Penelope D, a large moon orbiting one of the system's three gas giants. You are being sent to investigate and carry out a rescue if necessary. But this is no ordinary moon. Its atmospheric properties are unique and formidable. In addition, somewhere under that atmosphere, in a subterranean complex, is an esoteric religious sect with a unique transcendent apocalyptic doctrine. Who sent the message and why? Can you find out in time and what should you do?

Strontium Dog: Southern Fried Dog
A Termination Warrant has been issued for the retirement of one Colonel James Timeson-Richmond, a mass serial killer and sociopath responsible for the death of over 450 people across 3 star systems. Enter you, the Strontium Dogs, the ugliest, tallest most downright Muppet looking bunch this side of the Mississippi. Word is Timeson has holed up somewhere in the river delta of the old Missie and hooked up with some old gang members and he ain't entertaining guests! Time to go huntin'.

As always, the Mongoose store will be open all day, giving you the chance to pick up the latest goodies for Traveller and our other games (and for Cubicle 7 games too!).

Directions to Mongoose's offices can be found at;

See you there!

Matt, being a leftpondian, I'm NOT going to be able to attend - to my regret. Are the adventures that you list above going to be released as product, either for money or free?

If yes, and for free, would you consider allowing Freelance Traveller to 'print' them in the magazine and incorporate them on our website?
