I decided to randomly play a little Traveller a while back using Star Trader. I wrote it all out but got distracted with Runequest, so forgot to ever post it. I shall rectify that now, since I haven't got anything post-able for RQ adventure #2 yet.
Here is the setup, 5 totally random characters and their ship. They were all generated with Classic Traveller rules. The last line of each 'character sheet ' shows the source: mostly Merchant Prince but some JTAS articles as well. Some day I will get back to my Traveller campaign properly, and these PCs may surface again should I need a merchant crew.
Anyway, here they are. Their adventure (so far) will come tomorrow.
