Hammer’s Slammers For The ‘Traveller’ Roleplaying Game
July 13, 2009 by tcgames
Ok, folks. I have a love-hate relationship with Hammer’s Slammers. I’ve read the books. I’ve played the board game. I just think that it’s in the category of “I almost like it”. I love the concept of a futuristic mercenary unit that goes around the galaxy, kicking all sorts of ass. It seemed to miss the mark for me as a story idea though and here’s where I can actually say “This is so cool!”. A roleplaying supplement!
Now you can take the “idea” of Hammer’s Slammers and produce whatever story-driven ideas you can think of yourself and put them into play…
Based on the novels and short stories of David Drake, Hammers Slammers is a brand new setting for the Traveller roleplaying game. Players will take the part of tank crews and specialists within the best known and most capable mercenary unit in the galaxy!
This full colour hardback is packed full of the history of the Slammers, the weapons, vehicles and tactics they use, new careers – all rounded off by a series of missions to get you started. With all vehicles created using the Traveller Vehicle Creation System, this book is guaranteed to be fully compatible with every other Traveller book, allowing you to mix and match supplements as you desire!
The Hammer’s Slammers RPG supplement for the Traveller system is available as a digital download from DriveThruStuff.com
