I started my Traveller experience with the Starter Set, which was essentially the 3 digest-sized black books re-laid out to standard-sized. I always liked Traveller, even if I had issues with some of the science - I'm talking about YOU room-sized computers ;)
The Traveller Imperium Tour Starter Collection is a bargain at $14.95. In many ways, this is the beginning of sci-fi RPGs, and certainly the first successful one, and it's a great price for a piece of history.
For just US$14.95 you get all eleven titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $69) as DRM-free ebooks, including the new Classic Traveller Facsimile Edition -- a "Little White Book" that reproduces the 1981 rulebooks in new scans with errata corrected; two landmark 1983 releases, The Traveller Book and The Traveller Adventure, six sets of starship deck plans by longtime Traveller developer Loren Wiseman; Supplement S12 Forms and Charts; and the Classic Traveller Orientation Pack, a collection of resources originally compiled for the February 2014 Classic Traveller Bundle of Holding.
And if you pay more than the threshold price of $33.07, you'll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with thirteen more titles worth an additional $162, including all eight Alien Modules and all five of GDW's 1980s M-series guides to the Imperium: Tarsus, Beltstrike, The Spinward Marches Campaign, Atlas of the Imperium (plus the 2016 Enhanced Edition), and Alien Realms.
Damn. I may need to get this in PDF myself, even though I have much of it in the original print.
