Default Bwaps & Threeps

Has any character generation info been produced (either official or unofficial) for the Bwaps or Threeps in Mongoose Traveller 2nd edition?

Not yet (Bwaps are coming).

In fact, Bwaps were in the first draft of the second edition rulebook, but they were removed because... well, most players will find them utterly useless

I confronted this stereotype as well. Bwaps as detailed are red-tape dwellers, pencil pushers, accountants with a "no" attitude, basically the snowflakes of the Traveller world.

I set out to change that.

Well, not to change who they are, but rather explain how they are more than just number-crunching economists who can't live in dry climates without a wet towel.

I think they are excellent at recon, forward observation, athletics, and stealth.

And Bwaps can serve and have a role in the Navy as Agent of the Imperium shows.

Won't argue any of these points, just don't think they had a place in the Core Rulebook
