About Traveller Hephaestus

Traveller Hephaestus is an adventure compatible with Mongoose Traveller. The German version spreads across 24 pages and contains 20 images.

Traveller Hephaestus Cover

The color-hardcover can be removed and uses as referee screen. The inside of the cover contains all deckplans making it even simpler for the referee.

Traveller Hephaestus Interior Cover

Interior art is black/white.

So what is the story about?

A gigantic star ship has stranded nearby a gas giant of a populated system, sending out an automated distress signal. The type of vessel is unknown, so is the language used in the distress signal. However, the ship appears to be very advanced, maybe even beyond Imperial maximum.

All communications with the ship have failed so far and suddenly a race for the apparently abbandoned ship begins. Imperials, Pirates and Travellers make strange bedfellows. Who will be the first to claim its treasures..and survive?

This adventure can be set anywhere in known space but densly populated systems on the frontier work the best.

About 13Mann

13Mann Verlag is the publisher holding the German license to Mongoose Traveller.

Besides translation of Mongoose material we also produced our own Traveller material which so far has been only accessible to our German audience. Now we want to bring it to the international audience as well.

You may have already experienced the quality and fine detail work we put in

  • 13Mann's ROBOTS
  • Traveller Spinward Marches - Excellent Maps for Explorers and Merchants

Traveller Hephaestus will be our third international product.

 

Why do we need the money?

We need to translate the German text into English and have it checked by a copyeditor. Afterwards we will have it layouted and a PDF created. This is the minimum version we aim for.

If we are able to reach our stretch goal for printing, we bring you the printed version as well (hardcover, around 24 pages, b/w artwork).

 

When will you be getting your perks?

If we reach funding by September, we intend to bring you the watermarked PDF before Christmas and the printed version (funding provided) in Q1 2014.
