HSG's "Yacht My Problem" campaign on YouTube

I just wanted to give a quick shout out to High Shelf Gaming for their "Yacht My Problem" Traveller campaign. David Gillespie is using Roll20 to bring his group together virtually. Gaming sessions are live streamed and posted on YouTube.

Watching others play is an entertaining way to see different gamer and referee play styles. Session 3, just released yesterday, was a good reminder of just how deadly Traveller play can be and how quickly things can go bad. The scene where the characters had to move their recently deceased comrade from one ship to another while flying through space was a particular nail-biter - and yet still hilarious in many ways. I also enjoyed seeing the bounty hunter variant of my Hammer Class starship and some Starship Geomorphs used in actual gameplay. Always happy to see my work being put to good use.

HSG also does a gaming podcast. For more Traveller goodness, check out their podcast episode: Traveller: A Space Opera RPG

    Then I should mention -- I'm running a Traveller game at Gen Con, and I'm making sure to have some of your stuff ready to go. Mainly the prisons, stations, and geomorph stuff -- the players are 110% stranded, so no fancy ships for them.

    They do arrive into the system in steerage, however -- not in a Hammer-class, but I'll be describing the same kind of situation, scaled up somewhat.

    Very much appreciating these fantastic resources as I prep.

  2. Hey that's me! and my show! I almost teared up seeing this post. Thank you so much for sharing this on your blog.

    You are too right about how nearly they all died... I thought for sure I was about to lose almost the entire party in just space walking between two ships lol
