Greeting, Fellow Sophonts!Welcome to
, a free PDF-based fanzine dedicated to Classic Traveller and Traveller T20. During the1980's and '90's, fans of Traveller supported their game through such fanzines such as
, among others. However, in recent years, such fan-based support has been primarily relegated towebsites.
, a free fanzine for Classic Traveller and Traveller T20, attempts to provide the same levelof support that fanzines of the past generated for Traveller, in an electronic format.In each issue, readers will find details for one quadrant of the featured sector (the first four issues focus on theEmpty Quarter sector), as well as an adventure based in that region of space, to help introduce players to the region.Supporting articles, such as starship and vehicles designs, background information or new game mechanics, typi-cally lend support to the adventure or setting depicted in the issue.It is our goal to release a new issue of
quarterly, with 20 to 40 pages of content in each issue, de-pending on submissions. While
primarily supports Classic Traveller and Traveller T20, articlesfrom other systems will definitely be considered. While the primary focus of content is expected to be on the Gate-way Era and Classic Traveller time frames at first (with the intention to support TNE 1248 as well, once that corebook is released), other eras may also come into focus as other authors submit articles, and new products becomeavailable on the market.Submissions are simple. Each draft document should be anything between one and eight pages in length (assumingapproximately 800 words to the page). If possible, articles should be submitted in RTF, TXT or Word format, asthose are the easiest to convert. Please be mindful of your grammar and spelling, if you can.We are also in dire need of artwork, ranging from scanned drawings to rendered graphics of starships, vehicles androbots. All contributions will be considered!This is a non-profit operation, ran totally based on our love for the game. The only payment we receive is the recog-nition of Traveller fans for our work. We sincerely hope you enjoy our efforts, but if you do not, we ask that youbear in mind that it didn't cost you anything, either. ;)Thank you for joining us on our maiden voyage, and we hope you enjoy the ride!Preparing for Jump,Jason "Flynn" KempEditor, Stellar Reaches fanzine
