Freetrader Beowulf, what was that about -- tentacles?

Just a quickie post here. Traveller + Cthulhu. Yeah! Stars Without Number conversion is probably really easy too -- maybe that's what caused the Scream in the SWN setting, eh? Check this out:
2159 AD. It is a good time to be alive. The nations of the world still exist, but they have become more civilized, and we have expanded into the rest of our solar system. But, alas, it is not to be our time. Something approaches, a thing on an orbit from far away. Seemingly a large shard of dark matter, this object is known in obscure prophecy as the Chthonian Star. It is awakening things long thought lost or dead, things that have slumbered awaiting its return. The Unified World Council sends out special teams of sanctioned Wardens, whose job it is to ascertain the new threats to human life, to learn everything they can about them, and fight them wherever they are found.
Chthonian Stars is an original Lovecraftian horror setting for Traveller.
This Core Setting Book:

  • Provides a detailed exploration of our fully colonized solar system, only a few hundred years in the future.
  • Introduces exciting new optional character design rules, including advantages and disadvantages, as well as career half-terms.
  • Introduces new rules for fear and madness, as well as optional rules for character survivability.
  • Brings to life many familiar Lovecraftian horrors for Traveller, as well as a host of new and original ones.
  • Details more than a dozen new spaceships.
  • Includes three ready-to-run adventures, to get groups running quickly.
  • From the award-winning team that brought you CthulhuTech.


  1. My first impression was Nyarlathotep in the 3rd imperium, but this Is still very intriguing indeed! Those Mythos beasties could be very BIG and space gives them a lot of room indeed to play around....

  2. Interesting. It may also help us understand what they meant by "The Stars" becoming "Right" once and for all!


That's my side of things. Let me know what you think, my friend.
