As much as I want to, I usually end up missing Free RPG Day. In the few times I have made it into a FLGS I am already too late for any of the more desirable stuff and, not being a D&D sorta guy, usually walk away empty handed. This year I was pleasantly surprised to see GypsyKnights Games offer a free Mongoose Traveller RPG download thru DriveThruRPG.
Ships of the Clement Sector 1: Kiviat-class Patrol Corvette is an 18-page product that is the first in the Ships of the Clement Sector line supporting GypsyKnights Clement Sector Alternate Traveller Universe (ATU). It features the outstanding artwork of Ian Stead who is my favorite Traveller ship artist. It also starts off with a bit of fiction to help set the mood. In addition to the background and ship form there is the Mongoose-obligatory deck plan that, though inspirational, is once again all-but-useless at the scale printed. There is also one character described.
Pros: ARTWORK! In addition to the cover one gets a color five-view page. The background is very useful for the referee; the fiction passable.
Cons: Deckplans. The character description is given but no references to which product was used to develop it.
Overall a very useful product; darn sight better than the usually poor Mongoose items.
A big THANK YOU to GypsyKnights Games for giving this away for the 2015 Free RPG Day. You have sucked me in and I will be looking for opportunities to get the rest of the Ships of the Clement Sector series!
