Aurore SourceBook

A Game Book by

Nobody said it would be easy. On Aurore, life is no paradise. There are the quakes and volcanoes, the inedible (and often hostile) life forms, and the peculiar orbital mechanics which made half the planet too hot for human habitation. Even to grow food is a struggle of sizable dimensions. The Kafer invasion only made things more complicated... Aurore [Eta Bootis IIc] is one of the least hospitable worlds in the French Arm, and at the same time one of the most spectacularly beautiful worlds in known human space. Aurore is a world Earthlike enough that humans can live and work in its temperate zone without being forced to resort to cumbersome survival gear or protective suits. Only slightly smaller than Earth, Aurore is largely a vast and unexplored wilderness; the regions which have been thoroughly explored and developed around each of Aurore's three human colonies are relatively small, and much of the rest of the surface has been only superficially surveyed and mapped. The fact that Aurore is actually a large [tidally-locked] satellite of a superjovian gas giant [brown dwarf] has created extremes of climate and surface conditions which present players with unique and interesting problems. Aurore Sourcebook contains background information on Aurore, allowing the Traveller: 2300 referee to set campaigns anywhere on the planet. It is intended to give a broad overview of the planetary conditions, terrain, biology, and colonies of Eta Bootis IIc-known to its inhabitants as Aurore. Although Aurore Sourcebook is intended to be used with Kafer Dawn, the module in not needed to complete the information presented in this sourcebook.
