Orbital is a science fiction setting for Traveller with a fairly realistic (TL 9) feel that is set within our own solar system. The Earth us locked in a Cold War with the people of Luna. Both face... More > off, 400,000 km apart, threatening mutual annihilation whilst they compete to colonise the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Older colonies such as Mars and Mercury are independent and caught up in this struggle for solar system supremacy. Spacecraft use nuclear thermal rockets and create gravity by spinning pods or centrifuges, this is spaceflight as envisaged today! In keeping with the near-future and hard-science fiction themes, role-playing campaigns focus on real people doing real jobs. The game has rules, technology and advice to allow scenarios based around deep space haulage, asteroid mining, salvage, rescue and exploration. Requires the use of the Traveller Core Rulebook, available from Mongoose Publishing. Visit Zozer Games at www.zozer.weebly.net, or on facebook.< Less

More > Scripture is the source of advance science, containing data on cosmic expanse, forces of gravity, orbital motion, Earth's axial tilt, and its atmosphere? Could it be that the ancient Scripture also bears the account of advanced technology, which is only thousands of years later has been implemented in modern oceanic ships or even spaceships? Could it reveal to us a mathematical ratio that reflects perfection, harmony, or even divinity? Can Scripture tell us about the connection between Moon and dinosaurs and their extinction? What about the fire-breathing beast described in its pages? Is it just a myth?
