Flynn's Guide To Alien Creation


Have you ever wondered what kind of alien species would live on the worlds of your own Traveller campaign? Referees, are you tired of variations on the same old theme, of "people in rubber suits" or "humans with rubber foreheads", when creating aliens for your new campaign setting? Are you looking for a way to play the aliens that are mentioned only in passing in your favorite Traveller rule books?

If so, look no further! Flynn's Guide to Alien Creation offers Traveller Referees a complete system for alien species creation, starting with only a Universal World Profile and two six-sided dice. Referees are guided through the process of generating their own alien species for their Traveller campaign settings, complete with detailed examples. There's even advice on how to further define your alien culture, adding depth to the new alien races you can create using Flynn's Guide to Alien Creation.

This product requires the use of the Traveller main rules book, which is available from Mongoose Publishing.

Decent content but the author seems to be very confused about the meaning of the word gender. Nearly everything I've read in the doc in reference to "gender" it clearly means sex (as in biological sex).

WARNING! This supplement is only 34 pages long. That might not be worth five bucks to you. It wasn't to me.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
