I know, I know, you were expecting OSR Christmas. It will be back tomorrow, and likely Saturday AND Sunday.
Instead, today we are going to highlight two bargain releases for the Traveller RPG.
Classic Traveller Facsimile Edition -This is the original text of the 1981 edition of Classic Traveller based on page image Scans. It includes Books 1-2-3, with errata and corrections inserted (where possible; and additional material in an errata appendix). This text is essentially an errata corrected edition faithful to the original Classic Traveller of the early 1980's. The PDF has been OCR'ed. Margins are upgraded to 6x9 (from 5-1/2 x 8-1/2) for better margins.

Dock your ship at advanced starports, visit strange worlds, encounter alien beings and animals, and take on the challenges that the galaxy sets before you.

Death Station -A free Christmas present for all Travellers! Death Station is a remastering of a classic Traveller adventure, reimagined by Seth Skorkowsky. High above a backwater world, the laboratory ship Calendula has gone silent. Believing it nothing more than a downed transmitter, the Travellers are sent to investigate. Inside they discover a grisly scene of corporate espionage, illegal medical experiments, betrayal, and murder. Worse yet, they are not alone. The only thing worse than the Calendula’s dead are the Calendula’s living… and they are hungry. Death Station is the perfect introductory adventure for Traveller and, best of all, it is free to download! FREE
