About the adventure

In a galaxy far, far away, you will decide the fate of not just your crew, but a kingdom! The Pirates Of Drinax is the iconic, once in a life time adventure for Traveller 2e. Considered "possibly the greatest RPG campaign of all time," you will play space adventurers provided a Letter of Marque and then a galaxy to be let loose upon. Will you stay loyal to your patron and bring Drinax back to its place of prominence? Will you become a space pirate or create your a nation in your image? Will you be heroes or monsters, pirates or privateers? Will you make your fortune amid the pitiless stars, or will the cold depths of the Trojan Reach be your grave? This campaign is the perfect place for a new space farer to explore all of the elaborate star systems in an explicitly queer and disabled safe space. You will get the rare opportunity to experience this life changing adventure on your terms! For those of you unfamiliar with it, here are some reviews of this iconic adventure: +"The entire campaign blurb feels like a wish fulfilment writ large; after all, who doesn’t want to roleplay as a pirate? And yet, The Pirates of Drinax offers a surprising depth of narrative style, generous capacity for player agency-fuelled curveballs and an attention to detail that is often found lacking in other premium campaign settings." +"This is probably one of the most incredible RPG campaigns I have ever seen and the only real flaw is that it's so huge..." +"It is one of my favorite published campaigns, and I would argue that it is the best I have ever seen in terms of being a true sandbox." For those of you unfamiliar with how I run games, here are some reviews from those that have played with me before: +"Jacob will shift his pre-planned reasons just to fit whatever your characters would do, and fit it in the story like you're casually putting butter on bread in the morning for breakfast!" +"Gosh darn it, get in a game this person runs. I'm just a little blown away at the cool vibes, great knowledge of system, hands-on but not overbearing GMing style, just wow, a great experience." +"Jacob is great! He is the very definition of a "yes and" DM which, as a player, is a dream! The gaming style is very chill, he is always prepared and provides a fun/safe environment for players of all levels!"

Additional Details

How to prepare

The game will be done with Discord and Roll 20. As such, you will need a functioning internet connection and microphone/headset device. I would highly recommend as well a dedicated device for the game, either phone or computer. You may roll digitally or physically.

What I provide

I will bring a fully built unique discord for the game. Moreover I will bring a deep passion to this campaign. It is a dream of mine to run it and I can promise that will come through in every session.

Gameplay details

This is a massive space opera that is deeply responsive to your choices. To make sure this is perfect for all you, we will be taking safety very seriously. We will start with a full Session Zero that does include filling out the Monte Cook RPG Consent Checklist. During play we will use a variant of X, N, and O Cards called Yellow/Red Cards as well as an Open Door Policy. We will also have a regularly scheduled Break.
