Default The Traveller Book - Print On Demand

I'm about to buy a couple of copies of The Traveller Book, in hardcover, print on demand, at RPGNow.

Question: What's the quality of these books? I see that it's a scan of the original book (which I have, and it has stood the test of time).

What's your impression of the quality of this copy of the rules?

I want to know how this works too.

If I order it do they print it and bind it then ship it (to the UK)?

If you're in the UK, last I heard, they have a POD center in the UK, so shipping is relatively low.

If you want to know about quality - the actual POD center is Lightning Source, so you can look it up.

Note also: DriveThruRPG is the same company as RPGNow. Has been for several years now. Which is why the answer to an RPGNow question comes from a DTRPG FAQ page.

I just mentioned this on rpgnet - I wonder how many will be ordered?

By the way Sup 9's link does something odd.

just testing this

I'm assuming it's ok to post this link since it makes money for Marc

The hardcover of the Thousand Suns rules done by them is very nice.

If it's anything like the CT CD scans, it looks great! I print out sheets from the CT CD on my printer every once in a while and they're pretty good.

Since nearly all books published are POD now, the The Traveller Book book is produced just as well as any other hardcover book is. The print quality is on regular 20lb paper (same as Mongoose Traveller's paper). The pages are perfect re-prints of the original hardcover pages. The ink is black and red.

Took 7 or 8 days to ship to California. They had some already printed.
