Traveller 5 Kickstarter

As the granddaddy of science fiction RPG’s Traveller is setting out to make it’s 5th and “ultimate” edition. This edition of the game has player feedback figured in, 13 careers (all the originals & new ones), a bunch of races, and a ton of more stuff we can’t go on forever naming. It’s also being created by Marc Miller who is the game’s original creator so that’s always good.
