How 1,000-year lifespans could remake the economy…

Well, the article has nothing to do with Traveller, really – even the Vilani have trouble reaching the 300 year mark.

But it is interesting for speculation. And if anyone ever wants to really rebuild Traveller from the ground-up to match today’s expectations for the future, the game designer will have to address the issues spoken of in this article.

“If all PCs were ageless, would any of them ever risk their lives in dangerous exploration expeditions or risky military strikes?”

“Hard-core religious types might, if they believed that God would resurrect them on the Last Day. And… that’s about it.”

“Terraforming worlds and crossing the Void isn’t exactly safe, either. Perhaps the stars belong to the devout, after all…”
