Traveller

My First Rumour Table

Rumour tables are a staple of sandbox style play, and I wanted to make one for my new Traveller campaign. I found it pretty tricky to come up with a list of 20 interesting bits of lore and story hooks from nothing, but I managed it in the end.

Dice rolls in Traveller

Traveller uses a 2d6 dice system where characters add their relevant characteristic and skill levels, with various possible target numbers and situational modifiers. It also has a notion of “task chains”, where one roll gives a bonus or a penalty to another. This post runs through all these variations, with lots of graphs.
