Individual Ships Print on Demand Interest Check

Post by Horizon Jeff » Tue Feb 26, 2019 11:49 pm

The Traveller RPG has a lot of ships we'd never design an entire ship deck around.

But would there be interest in ships available individually from a print on demand service, probably for around $5 for a single card or small pack (maybe a few adventure cards to go with the ship)?

I'm thinking vessels like the 200 ton Safari Ship, somewhat less common than the standard free traders, but still recognizably familiar.

I would also be interested
Especially if there was the option to create a card for the ship my players use IMTU
We've already done specialized Challenge Coins, ship patches, etc....

I would be interested. The Seeker, the Yacht, the Lab Ship (lots of :survey ) or the Corsair - or even better, the Vargr Corsair. An Xboat might be interesting just for being a :jump 4 :ship . It wouldn't have much in the way of capability or room for :upgrade, though.
A Kinunir Colonial Cruiser would be cool, but that would be a larger ship than the Mercenary Cruiser.

We just released the Gazelle print-on-demand. A Kinunir would be cool, but as you mentioned larger than we want to expand the game into.

Lab Ship and Yacht are definitely something we'd like to do. Since we plan to do the 100 ton Bounty Hunter, the Seeker is probably at the back of the line, but it would be neat.

Maybe a Solomani or Sword World ship may make sense at some point.

It's great to see the Gazelle available on DriveThru.

However, for me, the cost of shipping (to Australia) is so high that I will wait for at least 3 ships to be available if the releases are going to be frequent enough.

It would be great to have an indication of release frequency or even if there would be bundled versions every now and again.

Yeah. We're looking into other print on demand services, but they don't seem as common as in North America.
