Default Reach Adventure 3: The Calixcuel Incident

Just in time for Christmas, a brand new Traveller adventure for you, written by fan favourite M J Dougherty - Reach Adventure 3: The Calixcuel Incident.

You can grab your own copy here: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/...iliate_id=7242


In The Calixcuel Incident, the Travellers are visiting an underwater city when a disaster causes it to begin leaking. Amid the chaos, they discover they have the means to save the entire city, if they can only reach and start the auxiliary reactor. However, the reactor is located in a secure bunker on the seabed, separate from the city, and between the Travellers and their destination are mobs of panicking citizens, jammed bulkhead hatches and several kilometres of ocean.

Not to mention the squid….

The Calixcuel Incident includes full rules for:

* Robodivers
* Orbney’s Pseudosquid
* Diving Suits
* Cargo & Work Submarines
* The Calixcuel Incident

"calix" = 'cup' in Latin
"cuel" = 'neck' in Fruilian (Northern Italian dialect from Latin 'collum')

Calixcuel = cup-neck

Does that help?

Yeah, I struck out there too.
Then I started searching by sylables and landed 'calix' in a page of Latin text.

It's the name of the planet. I don't know who named it.
