When it comes to SciFi, I always preferred the dark and ominous Alien and Blade Runner universes over more Space Opera like offerings like Star Wars or Star Trek. And back in the day, I felt that 2300 AD was the only available SciFi RPG that could model what I wanted from an SF rpg, […]Read more "ALIEN – new rpg coming 2019"
What can I say? Finding Cepheus Engine led to rediscovering Mongoose Traveller (1e), which in turn made me check out their iteration of 2300AD. And then I dug out my old GDW T:300/2300AD stuff as well as that Traveller20 2320AD PDF that I bought some ten years ago. I’ve been reading up on my once […]Read more "Revisiting an old favorite: 2300AD"
Back in 2005 I was just getting into RPGs again after having been away for some ten years. It would be another four years before we actually got back into playing RPGs again, but between 2005 and 2010 I read a lot of RPG stuff, both in books and online.

It starts out a bit slow but it will drag you in soon enough and the show is one […]Read more "Inspiration | The Expanse"
In this blog post, I try to describe where I come from Traveller-wise and why I prefer certain editions of the game. Also, this post is about the rules, no the setting (which will be covered in a separate post). I started out as a player in a Classic Traveller game (but at that time […]Read more "Return to Traveller – choosing system"
As I’m on a Traveller spree now, I just created this blog for Traveller and other SF RPGs. Not much content yet, but it will grow over time. Focus will be first and foremost on Traveller (primarily the versions that I prefer), 2300AD (another old favourite of mine), CyberPunk 2020 and the lovely River of […]Read more "New Traveller/SF blog"

The new Mongoose Traveller edition Most of you don’t know this, but other than a dark fantasy fan I’m also into sci-fi gaming. As in fantasy gaming I prefer dark and hard sci-fi over space opera. As a matter of fact, it was my interest in 2300 AD and…
