2159 AD. It is a good time to be alive. The nations of the world still exist, but they have become more civilized, and we have expanded into the rest of our solar system. But, alas, it is not to be our time. Something approaches, a thing on an orbit from far away. Seemingly a large shard of dark matter, this object is known in obscure prophecy as the Chthonian Star. It is awakening things long thought lost or dead, things that have slumbered awaiting its return. The Unified World Council sends out special teams of sanctioned Wardens, whose job it is to ascertain the new threats to human life, to learn everything they can about them, and fight them wherever they are found.

Chthonian Stars is an original Lovecraftian horror setting for Traveller.

This Core Setting Book:

  • Provides a detailed exploration of our fully colonized solar system, only a few hundred years in the future.
  • Introduces exciting new optional character design rules, including advantages and disadvantages, as well as career half-terms.
  • Introduces new rules for fear and madness, as well as optional rules for character survivability.
  • Brings to life many familiar Lovecraftian horrors for Traveller, as well as a host of new and original ones.
  • Details more than a dozen new spaceships.
  • Includes three ready-to-run adventures, to get groups running quickly.
  • From the award-winning team that brought you CthulhuTech.


Chthonian Stars requires the Traveller Core Rulebook to play.

This product is for mature audiences. Reader discretion is advised.


Note: This book will be available in POD in the coming weeks, so you will be able to order a physical printed copy of this product. We will also be offering a POD Book + PDF bundle for those customers who wish to purchase both editions.

Note: This is the Traveller version of the setting. We will be releasing The Void in July, a version of this intellectual property with proprietary rules and revisions by WildFire and in a new format.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
