Travellers' Digest

Digest Group Publications (DGP) published this highly-regarded magazine in support of Traveller, and later MegaTraveller. It had a unique format where the same group of characters travelled around the Imperium in an ongoing campaign, with some fiction, scenarios, & background on new sectors, planets, & aliens in every issue.

As with other early RPG publications, the first few issues of the Digest were black & white and fairly primitive - and rare these days - encouraging some folks to create copies on their inkjet printers and try to pass the counterfeits off as the real thing at auction for a tidy profit. The photo on the right shows a fake; the inkjet printer leaves those lines running across the cover.
