Please note: I have a "real" job and family, and this stuff is a hobby. If something doesn't work first time, I may well have missed something. Please contact me and let me know if this happens, otherwise it won't get fixed! See the Support Page for more details.

My software has been tested on the awful Windows 8 and the slightly better Windows 10, and it does work - if you aren't a local administrator on the PC though, you'll need to change where it installs to somewhere under My Documents.

The older DOS stuff (RQ, Robots and Vehicles) won't run on 64-bit Win8 or Win7. The only way get it to go is to run it on something like DOSBox or VMWare... Sorry!

StarSys

So many people have had trouble with this one - and Stuart Ferris has so effectively overtrumped it with the excellent Heaven and Earth - that I've withdrawn StarSys from distribution. Hell, it works for me. I think it's the installation scripts; I'll try and debug it one day. Withdrawn 12th August 2002

Tablemaster tables for Traveller

Product detail and Download Page
For those of you who own Tablemaster, here are some tables I've created for that splendid piece of GM software. NB you'll have to modify the "include" statements to suit your directory tree.

Tablemaster is no longer available, sadly, the one-woman-band who created it has packed up business and disapeared off the face of the Web. The tables should convert to Tablesmith pretty easily though.

Product detail and Download Page

A very old program, written even before I discovered TableMaster. A text file with a list of results and how probable they are is fed in one end and a formatted table, scaled for d10, d100 or d1000 depending on how big the table is emerges at the other.

Because of its' age, this software will run on anything! (Except 64-bit Windows, sadly, you'll need to use XP Mode or Hyper-V)

Full instructions and a couple of sample table files are included.
v8.4 (23 September 2000)

Index to the Traveller's Digest

The (alas) sadly defunct Travellers Digest magazine was one of the most useful references ever published for Traveller. Being a hopeless geek, I chose to index them in a Windows help file. n/a

Battledress Malfunction Tables

Product detail and Download Page
Ever felt fed up that your players are wandering around in powered armour thumbing their noses at the forces of Order (ie the GM’s NPCs)? Then you want these tables. Every time an armoured character’s armour is stressed (your ruling, but falling off high things and being run over by busses are two examples that come to mind), roll for a malfunction and watch them learn to distrust the battledress! Heh, heh. Cruel or what? (153kb) n/a

Alien Module F1: I'Sred*Ni

Product detail and Download Page

The I'Sred*Ni appeared in the Paranoia Press publication "Beyond" way back in the days of Black Book Traveller. They were only really mentioned in passing, with their star empire mapped, so when I came to use them, I had to write them up. This was the result.

Paranoia Press used to have a home page, but it seems to have disappeared, sadly. NB this article is NOT FINISHED. Any feedback please mail me. (56kb)
