Default Universal World Profile in a book I can download ?

This is for GURPS Traveller. I have GURPS Traveller Classic which mentions the UPP/UWP and gives partial examples on page 122.

I have looked at the wiki, and the examples are spread across multiple pages.

Is there a pdf I can buy that shows all of that into on one or two pages ?

Thanks.

Did you mean just something that says what each character position is, or something that also lists what they mean i.e. what number means a "Feudal technocracy" government, etc.

For the first I just printed out page 16 from the Megatraveller Referee's Manual as a quick reference. (It is on Drivethrurpg for $10, but that's a lot for one page.*)

Something else which gives the same thing that I found online is here, fourth post down.

For the latter there is a one-page summary from the T20 (Traveller D20, Traveller20) gamemaster's screen I got on the T20 CD-ROM. It is on Drivthrurpg as "D20-S2 Referee Screen for Traveller 20" for $6.* It is an OCR'd scan, so the quality is not perfect, but pretty good.

There may be similar pages in the referee's screens for the other rules systems, I haven't checked.


*While Drivethrurpg is convenient, you get better value for most Traveller books by buying the CD-ROMs directly from Marc Miller at farfuture dot net

What is in each character position, and a list of what goes there.

I have both Traveller and GURPS Traveller.

On page 122 of GURPS Traveller shows some conversions, but not the entire lists.

As an example:

quote:
code corresponds exactly with its diameter in thousands of miles, with A
indicating 10,000 miles and 0 an asteroid belt.

end quote.

The rest are left out. So, from your post, I just use details from elsewhere.

Thanks.

I liked .hack//sign anime. Good avatar choice.

The UWP is explained in the sidebar on p. 94/95 of First In.

You can find the detailed UWP of each world of the setting in the traveller map.

Select a world, enlarge the window with the downward arrow and click on "print". For example, Regina.

I don't have First In. I'll get that.

I just need examples for my own web site as it is more of an ATU/GURPS Space site than canon.

GURPS Traveller didn't alter the UWP from classic Traveller. It just provided conversion notes for the statistics that weren't obvious.

You can find probably what you need in Starter Traveller, which is still free from DriveThruRPG. Try pages 14-16, and see if that does what you want.

The Traveller Wiki has a page on the UWP... https://wiki.travellerrpg.com/Universal_World_Profile

And from it, the various codes are on further pages linked to from that one...

It's more complete, and same price, as Starter Traveller (which is almost the complete CT core)

I got all of those pages printed to pdf, I have bullzip pdf printer, and they are on my hard drive.

Thanks.
