Old school Traveller, bundle of holding

If anyone ever wanted to check out the original Traveller RPG, bundle of holding has a selection of the little black books available:


I really enjoyed it (and wouldn't mind playing it again). You generally play middle-aged ex-military types on the fringe of a space empire. Everything is incredibly deadly to the PCs--if you run low on cash, cheapo space travel itself might kill you, the rules for zero-g combat are lethal, bad things can happen to you during character creation, and never teleport to higher or lower altitudes.

The one supplement missing that I really enjoyed is Trillion Credit Squadron, which let you design starfleets to use against other players' fleets.

Oh man, this is cool. I never actually played Traveller but I used to read the books as a kid. Always wished I had a regular group and the time to play this. I loved that you could die during character creation.
