This adventure was so good I purchased the other three from this author, also set in the Reach. Great info on a pretty significant planet close to Drinax (if you are playing Pirates of Drinax). The artwork is pretty top notch and the highguard for the raider's ship is also great!

Since starting Drinax in 2015, I had long wanted to take my players to icy, untamed Oghma. Potential 'fall guy' for the Drinaxians vis-a-vis the Punitive Flotilla, testing grounds for the nascent Pirates and their crews, or just a dangerous place with dangerous people, the planet had its mystery and reputation (and uses). The PCs were going...and it was going to be a lot of work!

Fortunately for me as a harried GM, there was suddenly a nearly fully-developed treatment of the world, its inhabitants, geopolitics, a lead-in scenario, technology and a sandbox (icebox?) the likes of which one usually associates with boxed sets (Tarsus?) or full softcover books (a la Sword Worlds), costing 3x as much or more. The cartography and schematics are first-rate, and the more modest endgame maps and plot twist inspired me to a much bigger effort of my own linked to other elements in my campaign-something I could never have done without the foundation this book provided. It is shaping up to be an epic conclusion to the current arc of the campaign and I must say-this book is the single most impressive Drinax-related Traveller product I have purchased other than the full campaign itself, which I backed on Kickstarter.

While capsule descriptions and short stories (cf. Arunisiir, Torpol Cluster, various Drinax fiction) are of some help, few feature such a broad and nicely detailed approach as the Makergod product. If this author creates more such books set in the Reach, I will put my money down without question!

Great work Christopher in fleshing out one of the more interesting worlds in the Trojan Reach, and for a very playable adventure as well!

This is a great resource. While it provides a decent adventure scenario, its real value for the busy GM is the detail it provides of the setting -- a history, major NPCs, quality world map, and new ship type (complete with deckplans and beautiful illustrations by Ian Stead). While it is written by and for GMs running Traveller campaigns in the Trojan Reach, it can easily be used in any setting where the GM wants to introduce space vikings -- and give them some depth and context. Well worth the purchase.

Awesome module. Over all nicely layed out. Lots of scope for the NPC's to be tweaked in such a way so as to allow the DM to have them be (Or become) re-appearing 'Bad guys' across a wide area of space.

Enough scope for there even to be 'Sequels' as well as expanded NPC character and equipment type lists.

Good value. Fleshes out an interesting world, making sense of the ability of a relatively low-tech society to sustain Jump-capable raiders while fitting in to the known history of the region. The scenario is quite open - there is enough information to let players decide their own goals, rather than just follow a scripted path. Plus there's a nice ship design - even if you don't intend to adventure in the Trojan Reach the ship is a useful addition to any Traveller game.

Thanks very much, Chris. I really can’t thank Ian enough for illustrating the ship. He really brought it to life.
