The Universe Is Your Market
There's a fortune to be made among the stars – for the intrepid merchant with business savvy, a suspicious mind, and more than a little luck.
Be prepared to meet some of the worst characters in the universe – just pray they're not your business partners! And remember, "cutthroat competition" isn't just a colorful catch phrase . . .
The "independent trader" campaign is one of the most popular among Traveller players. Far Trader is the complete support volume for a mercantile campaign. You can:
- Develop sector-wide trade routes, following the tides of commerce on an interplanetary scale.
- Start your own character-run business, raise capital, and finance your money-making ventures.
- Make contacts, find niche markets, and exploit opportunities the big corporations miss.
- Learn what it takes to run a successful commercial starship.
- Expand your campaign with 15 new character templates.
- Run entire mercantile campaigns, including Free Traders, smugglers, and pirates.
So stock your starship, grab your gun, and take to the stars . . . fortunes don't come easy!
